Gerardo Ortiz’s “Fuiste Mia” hops 13-10 on the Latin Airplay chart (dated July 23), earning the singer his ninth top 10 on the tally (up 20 percent in audience impressions in the week ending July 10, according to Nielsen Music). It’s the third top 10 from his Hoy Mas Fuerte album, which spent five weeks atop the Regional Mexican Albums chart in 2015.

Gerardo Ortiz’s Controversial ‘Fuiste Mia’ Music Video Removed From YouTube

Over on the Regional Mexican Airplay chart, “Fuiste” takes Greatest Gainer honors, rising 6-4 (up 20 percent to 9.8 million audience impressions). It’s his ninth top five hit, which puts him in third place among solo acts with the most top fives. Ahead of Ortiz is Vicente Fernandez (with 14) and Marco Antonio Solis (21).

Earlier this year, Ortiz came under fire for releasing a music video for “Fuiste” which included violent images. The clip spurred an online petition advocating its removal from YouTube. The video was eventually removed from the site in April, although it is unknown as to whether Ortiz’s team or YouTube took down the video.

‘Corazon’ Climbs Back to No. 1: Meanwhile, Enrique Iglesias returns to No. 1 on Hot Latin Songs with “Duele el Corazon,” featuring Wisin, for a fourth week atop the chart. The track rises 3-1 in its eighth week on the list, aided in part by a four percent increase in weekly streams (to 2.1 million). The track concurrently reaches a new peak on Dance Club Songs, jumping 38-32.

Intocable’s 53rd Entry: Finally, regional Mexican group Intocable scores the Hot Shot Debut on Hot Latin Songs, arriving at No. 42 with “Quiereme (Amame),” from its most recent album, Highway — which crowns Top Latin Albums for a second week.  The entrance marks the band’s 53rd song to chart, tying with singer Ednita Nazario for the third-most chart hits. Intocable is only bested by Luis Miguel and Vicente Fernandez, each with 57 entries, and Los Tigres del Norte — who hold the record with 66.
