The latter single rose to the No. 1 spot on last week’s April 9-dated Latin Airplay chart and falls to No. 4 on the latest ranking, making room for Balvin and Sheeran’s other collaboration, “Sigue,” to take over at No. 1. The song leads with 8.1 million all-format radio airplay audience impressions earned in the April 1-7 tracking week, according to Luminate, formerly MRC Data.
The last act to replace themselves at No. 1 on Latin Airplay with a new song was Farruko. He led the October 2, 2021-dated chart as a featured act on Enrique Iglesias’ “Me Pase” and then succeeded himself with his solo smash “Pepas.”
“Sigue” earns Balvin his record-extending 35th career No. 1 on the chart, and Sheeran his second. Of Balvin’s 35 No. 1s, “Sigue” is his third of 2022, following “Una Nota” in January and “Forever My Love” last week. He tallied five No. 1s in 2021 and nine in 2020 (his personal best). The only other acts with multiple Latin Airplay No. 1s in 2022 are Jhay Cortez, Karol G and Ozuna, with two apiece.
Here’s an updated look at the acts with the most Latin Airplay No. 1s in the chart’s 27-year history:
35, J Balvin
32, Enrique Iglesias
25, Daddy Yankee
19, Romeo Santos
