Longest Leading No. 1s Ever on Billboard’s Regional Mexican Airplay Chart

The Regional Mexican scene is just as dominant and on fire, as the Latin rhythmic scene — especially with the rise of artists such as Grupo Firme, Los Dos Carnales, and Eslabon Armado, to name a few.

But before the new generation, a group of Mexican artists and groups were making us swoon and croon with their music. In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, Billboard put together the 20 longest-leading No. 1 songs on the Regional Mexican Songs airplay chart. The list includes everyone from ’90s sensations such as Los Temerarios and La Mafia to the new wave of artists such as Espinoza Paz and Gerardo Ortiz.

Check out the complete list below:
