Karol G ties Natti Natasha for the most top 10s by a female act in the 15-year history of Billboard’s Latin Rhythm Airplay chart, as “El Makinon,” with Mariah Angelic, climbs 12-8 on the May 15-dated survey.
“El Makinon” steps into the list’s top 10 backed by 6 million in audience impressions, up 20%, earned in the week ending May 9, according to MRC Data; that’s almost 1 million more impressions than the previous chart week.
With 12 top 10s, Karol G pulls alongside Natti Natasha for the most top 10s by a woman since the tally launched in 2005.
Natti Natasha scored her first Latin Rhythm Airplay top 10 through her featured role in Don Omar’s “Dutty Love” in 2012. Karol G secured her first just in 2018, with the No. 1 hit “Mi Cama,” with J Balvin, featuring Nicky Jam. Since then, she’s placed nine other No. 1s, four from her latest No. 1 Top Latin Albums set KG0516: “Tusa,” with Nicki Minaj; “Ay, Dios Mío!”; “Bichota”; and “Location,” with Anuel AA and J Balvin.
Angelic, whose first entry on any Billboard chart arrived through “El Makinon” when the song debuted at No. 9 on the airplay-, streaming-, digital sales-blended Hot Latin Songs chart (dated April 10), earns her first Latin Rhythm Airplay top 10.
Here’s a recap of the women with the most top 10s on Latin Rhythm Airplay:
