In the midst of Wisin & Yandel’s Como Antes U.S. tour promo campaign, which kicked off with eight dates at Coliseo de Puerto Rico on Nov. 30, the duo’s “Reggaeton En Lo Oscuro” lands in the Latin Airplay chart’s top 10, rocketing 12-3 on the Jan. 19 ranking.

“We are so happy that ‘Reggaeton En Lo Oscuro’ is being embraced by radio and that fans are excited about our new music and upcoming tour!” Wisin tells Billboard. “It’s a great blessing to know that what we started more than 15 years ago is still going strong.”

The song nabs a spot in the list’s top tier with 12.82 million in audience impressions during the tracking week ending Jan. 13, according to Nielsen Music (a 31 percent boost vs. the title’s 12 percent gain from the previous week).

“I am so excited to hear about the success of ‘Reggaeton En Lo Oscuro’,” Yandel tells Billboard. “This new achievement is a re-affirmation that our new music continues to resonate with fans everywhere. I can’t wait to share the stage with Wisin and continue to make history together”. 

“Reggaeton” is the duo’s first official single after a five-year hiatus. Amid their break, however, they notched a No. 1 on the tally as featured acts on Ricky Martin’s “Fiebre” (May 19, 2018.)


The new song is the lead single off their tenth studio album Los Campeones del Pueblo / The Big League which debuted at No. 2 on the Top Latin Albums chart (dated Dec. 29).

For Wisin & Yandel, the rise earns them their 23rd top 10 as a duo. They continue to hold the sixth-most top 10s record on the list.

Karol G & Maluma Score With “Créeme”: Meanwhile, over on the Latin Pop Songs airplay chart, Colombians Karol G and Maluma notch new top 10s as “Créeme,” their first collaboration, enters the chart’s top tier following its release on Nov. 2018, gliding 11-8.

The song ascends — despite a 5 percent dip in audience impressions — with a 6 percent increase in spins at the format. It earns Karol her third top 10, and Maluma his 16th.

Mucho Manolo’s First Win With “Amigos”: Elsewhere, Cuban singer-songwriter Mucho Manolo notches his first top 10 on any Billboard chart, as “Amigos” (with Gilberto Santa Rosa) pushes 13-10 on the Tropical Songs Airplay chart. Their first collaboration spikes with a 16 percent gain in audience impressions (to 1 million).

Santa Rosa ups his career top 10 count to 35. He continues to hold the record for the third-most top 10 hits on the list, trailing only Victor Manuelle with 58, and Marc Anthony with 46.
