Sinaloa quartet Calibre 50 collects its 13th Latin Airplay top 10 with “Mitad y Mitad,” the first single off their upcoming album due later this year. The song surges 17-10 thanks to a 16 percent rise in audience impressions (to 8.92 million) in the week ending April 8, according to Nielsen Music. The song concurrently climbs 5-2 on Regional Mexican Songs airplay, besting its previous No. 4 peak.
Elsewhere on the Regional Mexican Songs tally, Banda Los Recoditos’ “Tiempo” lifts 3-1 in its 10th week, logging the group its fourth leader and first since 2014’s “Hasta Que Salga El Sol.” “Tiempo” earned 9.1 million in audience in the latest tracking week, up 10 percent.

Daddy Yankee Leaps: Over on the Latin Pop Songs airplay chart, Daddy Yankee banks his fourth leader as “Dura” climbs 4-1 (up 15 percent in detections). It is Yankee’s first solo leader on the tally since 2013 when “Limbo” pushed 3-1 (Feb. 6-dated chart) and ruled for 13 nonconsecutive weeks. In between those, Yankee topped the list with “Despacito,” with Luis Fonsi, featuring Justin Bieber.
On Latin Airplay, “Dura” is a non-mover at No. 1, holding at the summit for a third nonconsecutive week.
