Camilo Dominates Tropical Airplay Chart With ‘Pegao’

Plus, La Adictiva clocks 17th Regional Mexican Airplay top 10 thanks to "DLG," with Luis R. Conriquez.

Camilo captures his third No. 1 on Billboard’s Tropical Airplay chart (dated Aug. 13) as “Pegao” hits No. 1 in its 11th week.

“Pegao” climbs from the runner-up rank through a 7% gain in audience impressions, to 5.6 million, earned in the U.S. in the week ending August 7, according to Luminate. The single ends Manuel Turizo’s one-week command with “La Bachata” (Aug. 6-dated survey), as it drops to No. 2 on the latest chart.

The cumbia villera “Pegao” marks a new career achievement for Camilo’s Tropical Airplay career history, becoming his first champ on a lead role, unaccompanied by any other act. The track was co-written alongside Edgar Barrera with the collaboration of Andres Castro.

“Pegao” follows the Colombian’s two-week champ “Baloncito Viejo,” with Carlos Vives (June 11-18-dated lists). Previously, he snatched his first champ also through a co-lead collab, “Kesi,” with Shawn Mendes (Aug. 21, 2021).


“Pegao” is the third single from Camilo’s forthcoming third studio album, De Adentro Pa Fuera, set to be released in September. His eponymous worldwide tour, which kicked off May 26 in Mexico, features some of the set’s already released singles: “Indigo” with Evaluna and “Pesadilla,” both which scored an entry on Latin Pop Airplay (No. 3 and No. 16 high, respectively), and the newly released singles “Nasa” with Alejandro Sanz and “Naturaleza” with Nicki Nicole, which have not yet entered a Billboard chart.

Further, ‘Pegao” moves closer to the top 10 on Latin Airplay, climbing 16-12 in its 10th week.

La Adictiva nab 17th Regional Mexican Airplay top 10: Elsewhere on the Latin charts, Sinaloan band La Adictiva clock their 17th top 10 on Regional Mexican Airplay as “JGL” with Luis R. Conriquez, rallies 11-5 in its seventh week. The song arrives to the upper tier thanks to a 34% increase in audience impressions (to 4.6 million) earned in the week ending Aug. 7; that’s a 1.17 million increase in audience from the week prior.

La Adictiva’s “JGL” is the act’s 11th straight top 10, dating back to the No. 1 “Durmiendo En El Lugar Equivocado” in June 2017. Among those 11 straight top 10s, nine landed at the summit.

In total, the group has earned 11 No. 1s among a collection of 17 top 10s, dating back to “Te Amo y Te Amo,” its longest-leading charting title, with nine weeks at the lead. Luis R. Conriquez, meanwhile, secures his third top 10.
