Shakira and Maluma debut in the top 20 of the Hot Latin Songs chart (dated June 23) as their new collaboration “Clandestino” arrives at No. 17.

It’s the third time the pair have teamed up for a hit on the list, following “Trap” (which peaked at No. 17 on Feb. 10, 2018) and “Chantaje” (No. 1 for 11 weeks, beginning Nov. 19, 2016). The latter two tracks were billed to Shakira, featuring Maluma. 

With “Clandestino’s” arrival, Shakira extends her record as the female artist with the most top 20 hits ever on the chart; she now has 33. Luis Miguel still holds the lead, among all acts, with 46. 

Meanwhile, Maluma clocks his 12th top 20.

“Clandestino” is Shakira’s first debut in 2018 and the highest arrival in over a year: “Me Enamoré” debuted at No. 11 on the Apr. 29, 2017-dated list. For Maluma, it’s his fourth debut of 2018. 


The tune also arrives at the penthouse on the Latin Digital Songs Sales tally, with 5,000 downloads sold in the week ending June 14, according to Nielsen Music, pushing Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito” featuring Justin Bieber back at No. 2. 

Piso 21 Debuts: Elsewhere, Colombian group Piso 21 notches its second hit on the Latin Rhythm Songs airplay chart, as “La Vida Sin Ti” debuts at No. 25 thanks to a 16 percent lift in plays in the week ending June 17. Earlier in 2018, the act logged its first hit on the list with “Dejala Que Vuelva,” featuring Manuel Turizo, which peaked at No. 7 on March 24.

“La Vida Sin Ti” also debuts on the Latin Airplay tally, arriving at No. 45.

Christian Nodal Climbs: Finally, Christian Nodal rockets to the Regional Mexican Songs airplay chart’s top 20 as “Te Fallé” surges 27-11 in only its second week thanks to a lofty 117 percent increase in audience impressions (to 4.2 million), collecting the week’s Greatest Gainer honors. The song also debuts on the Latin Airplay list at No. 35.

“Te Fallé” is the fourth single of his first studio album, Me Dejé Llevar, which has spent 34 weeks at No. 1 on the Regional Mexican Albums chart, the most weeks at No. 1 for an album by a male artist in the history of the chart thus far. It also earns the record for an album with second-most weeks ever (behind only Selena’s Amor Prohibido with 97 weeks at No. 1).
