The song, which debuted on the July 18-dated chart, climbs 20-8 in its 17th week. It wraps the longest journey to the top 10 since Luis Fonsi, Sebastian Yatra and Nicky Jam’s “Date La Vuelta” took 21 weeks to hit the top tier in Oct. 2019.
“Feel the Beat” speeds up the list thanks to a 45% surge in audience impressions, to 7.1 million, earned in the week ending Nov. 1, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. Among the song’s greatest gainers in that span were WODA (up 576,000 impressions) and WMEG (up 355,000) San Juan, Puerto Rico, and WPAT (up 298,000) and WXNY (up 289,000) New York.
“Feel the Beat” is the third single from Black Eyed Peas’ Translation, the group’s eighth studio album, which earned the trio their first Top Latin Albums top five, with their first chart entry (July 4-dated survey).
As “Feel” ascends, Black Eyed Peas claim their third top 10, all stemming from Translation, including two Latin Airplay chart leaders: “Ritmo (Bad Boys for Life),” with J Balvin (No. 1 peak, Feb. 8-dated list), and “Mamacita,” with Ozuna and J. Rey Soul (No. 1 peak, chart dated June 20).
Maluma, meanwhile, boosts his career top 10s to 21, thanks also to “Pa’ Ti” with Jennifer Lopez, which bumps 13-10 on the current chart with 6 million in audience impressions, up 9%.
With “Feel” and “Pa’ Ti,” Maluma places three titles in Latin Airplay’s top 10, leading with “Hawái,” the four-week ruler (and counting) and his longest charting title at No. 1.
