Carlos Vives & Camilo’s ‘Baloncito Viejo’ Rises to No. 1 on Tropical Airplay Chart

Their latest collaboration puts Vives back on the top of the tally as he last scored a champ in August 2019.

Carlos Vives and Camilo’s latest collaboration “Baloncito Viejo” lands atop Billboard’s Tropical Airplay chart as the song jumps 2-1 on the June 11-dated ranking.

The move puts Vives back on the top of the tally as he last scored a champ in August 2019 when “Si Me Das Tu Amor,” with Wisin, climbed 3-1 in its 20th week. He clocks his ninth No. 1, meanwhile, Camilo secures his second.

“Baloncito Viejo” jumps from No. 2 after a 42 percent surge in audience impressions, to 9.1 million, earned in the U.S. in the week ending June 5, according to Luminate. The duo sends another pair to the runner-up slot: Prince Royce and Maria Becerra’s “Te Espero” dips 1-2 with 8.5 million impressions after its two-week reign.


“Baloncito,” released March 2 via Sony Music Latin/WK, leads in 13th week. It’s the fourth track in 2022 to have landed at the summit in at least 10 weeks or more. Here’s the recap:

Weeks to No. 1, Title, Artist, Peak Date

12, “Te Espero,” Prince Royce & Maria Becerra, May 28

13, “Baloncito Viejo,” Carlos Vives & Camilo, June 11

17, “Mala,” Marc Anthony, March 12

17 weeks, “La Fama,” Rosalia Featuring The Weeknd, May 14

Over on Latin Airplay, “Baloncito” barely misses the top, climbing 10-2 in its 10th week. It’s the closest Vives has been to No. 1 since also “Si Me Das Tu Amor” gifted him his 15th win in 2019. It’s a different setting for Camilo as he last captured a No. 1 less than a year ago when “Millones” ruled the overall Latin survey for one week in July 2021.

“Baloncito” concurrently makes progress on Latin Pop Airplay. It rises 2-1 as the Greatest Gainer of the week.
