Los Tigres del Norte Score 16th No. 1 on Regional Mexican Airplay Chart With ‘En Dónde Estabas’

The norteño band hit No. 1 in each of the last four decades -- 1990s through 2020s.

Los Tigres del Norte crosses off a new milestone this week on their Billboard chart career as they land a 16th No. 1 on the Regional Mexican Airplay chart, spanning four distinct decades of chart champs.

Their latest single “En Dónde Estabas” hits No. 1 on the almost 27-year-old chart as it jumps 4-1 thanks to a 28% boost in audience impressions, to 6.5 million, earned in the United States in the week ending March 20, according to Luminate, formerly MRC Data.
