Jessi Uribe Lands First No. 1 on Regional Mexican Airplay With Luis R. Conriquez Collab: ‘It’s a Dream Fulfilled’

"Si Ya Hiciste El Mal" lifts 2-1.

Colombian Jessi Uribe secures his first No. 1 on Billboard’s Regional Mexican Airplay chart (dated Nov. 19) as “Si Ya Hiciste El Mal,” his first collaborative effort with Luis R Conriquez, lifts 2-1.

Uribe is one of the forerunners of Colombian ranchero, a branch of regional Colombian music that borrows from Mexican mariachi, ranchera and corrido formats. He becomes the third Colombian singer-songwriter to score a No. 1 on Regional Mexican Airplay in 2022: As “Si Ya Hiciste el Mal” hits No. 1, it sends Camilo, a core Latin pop Colombian artist, to No. 2 as “Alaska,” with Grupo Firme, dips after its one-week command (chart dated Nov. 12). Previously, Maluma secured his second champ through another Firme collaboration: “Cada Quién” (two weeks atop in Feb.)

“Honestly, I’m extremely happy and grateful,” Uribe tells Billboard. “It’s a dream fulfilled. I have been a regional Mexican music lover since childhood, I am singer of regional Colombian music and to be the first one to achieve this, is an honor. Thanks to Luis, my team, and the listeners who have given us so much love.”

“Si Ya Hiciste” climbs from the runner-up spot after a 3% increase in audience impressions, to 7.1 million, earned in the U.S. in the week ending Nov. 13, according to Luminate.

As mentioned, the song gives Uribe his first leader on an airplay chart. He previously scored a No. 6 best with “El Alumno,” with Joss Favela, in May. Meanwhile, Conriquez clocks his second ruler: “JGL,” with La Adictiva, topped Regional Mexican Airplay for one week (Sept. 10).

“Working with Jessie was a beautiful experience,” Conriquez tells Billboard. “We traveled to Colombia to record the song and our bonding was beyond great.”

Further, thanks to its radio reception, “Si Ya Hiciste” debuts at No. 50 on the multimetric Hot Latin Songs chart. It earns Uribe his first chart appearance. Conriquez claims his ninth entry.

The track also makes progress on the all-genre Latin Airplay chart jumping 10-8, the closest Conriquez has been to the top after another No. 8 high (“JGL” in the Sept. 10-dated ranking).
