A week after hitting No. 1 on Billboard’s Tropical Airplay chart, Carlos Vives and Camilo again pounce to the No. 1 rank on the overall Latin Airplay chart as “Baloncito Viejo” rules the June 18-dated list.
The Colombians’ first collaboration lifts 2-1 in its 11th week thanks to a 13% gain in audience impressions, earned in the U.S. in the week ending June 12, according to Luminate.
“Baloncito” becomes Vives’ 16th No. 1 on Latin Airplay, and first in almost three years. He last achieved a No. 1 with “Si Me Das Tu Amor,” with Wisin, in August 2019. In between, he’s scored four other entries, including “Canción Bonita” with Ricky Martin, the only other single — along with “Baloncito” — that appears on his latest studio album, Cumbiana II, which has secured a spot on the overall genre tally (the album debuted and peaked at No. 14 on the May 28-dated Tropical Albums chart).
Camilo, meanwhile, clocks his sixth leader and first of the year. It follows “Millones” which ruled for one week in July 2021. Along with “Baloncito,” Camilo also charts with “Pegao” on Latin Airplay, at No. 42 on the current chart week.
Elsewhere, “Baloncito” rises to a new peak on Latin Pop Airplay with an equal 2-1 ascent. The move marks Vives first No. 1 in almost six years, since “La Bicicleta,” with Shakira, topped the ranking for 12 consecutive weeks, starting the July 9, 2016-dated chart.
Notably, both artists capture their fifth champ on Latin Pop Airplay.
Further, “Baloncito” holds its No. 1 rank on Tropical Airplay for a second week.
Airplay gains likewise push the song up the all-metric Hot Latin Songs, which factors radio airplay, song sales and streaming into its calculations. “Baloncito” climbs 50-41 and takes home the Greatest Gainer/Airplay honors.
