Los Dos Carnales claim their first No. 1 on any Billboard Latin airplay chart as “El Envidioso” jumps 2-1 on the Regional Mexican Airplay chart (dated Sept. 5).
“We feel that we are living a dream,” Poncho Jr Quesada tells Billboard. “It feels very nice to see your name on such an important list and next to so many colleagues that we admire. Arriving at No. 1 is a great blessing and we are very grateful to our fans and our AfinArte Music team.” AfinArte is the Mexican ensemble’s record label.
“El Envidioso” tops the chart in its 12th week with 6 million in audience impressions, a 5% gain, earned in the week ending Aug. 30, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
The song is the lead single off Al Estilo Rancherón, the Quezada brothers’ sophomore studio album which opened and peaked at No. 2 on Regional Mexican Albums (July 25-dated list).
“’El Envidioso’ is a song written by yours truly,” Quesada continues. “It’s about our everyday reality, people who envy you even if you have nothing and the few true friends you have. As the song says: ‘Remember that Kiko envied el Chavo and he had nothing,”(both characters of the famed Mexican series Chespirito).
Brothers Poncho and Imanol first scored a Billboard chart entry when “Vida Ventajosa” (No. 5 peak, June 27-dated list) arrived on the Regional Mexican Digital Sales chart in April.
