LISA of BLACKPINK and Meghan Thee Stallion collect their first No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart thanks to “SG,” their collaboration with DJ Snake and Ozuna, as the song rises from No. 3 to rule the April 2-dated survey.
DJ Snake, who clocks his third straight No. 1, returns to lead the all-Latin genre tally after “Loco Contigo,” with J Balvin and Tyga, reigned for one week in Nov. 2019. Ozuna, meanwhile, collects his 27th champ and second of the year: “Emojis de Corazones,” with Wisin, Jhay Cortez, which also features Los Legendarios, arrived at the summit on the Jan. 8-dated list.
With the new No. 1 on Latin Airplay, here’s a look at the acts with the most No. 1s on the 27-year-old survey:
33, J Balvin
32, Enrique Iglesias
25, Daddy Yankee
19, Romeo Santos
The bilingual “SG” (and its music video) was officially released Oct 22, 2021, via DJ Snake/Interscope. It didn’t, however, make its Latin Airplay appearance until four months later, when the track debuted at No. 37 on the Feb. 19-dated ranking. The song wraps a steady seven-week trek to No. 1 to lead the current chart with 8.4 million in audience impressions, up 26%, earned in the U.S. in the week ending March 27, according to Luminate, formerly MRC Data.
Both LISA and Meghan Thee Stallion concurrently score their first No. 1 on Latin Rhythm Airplay. Meanwhile, Ozuna captures his 26th champ and DJ Snake returns to the upper reaches with a third No. 1.
J Balvin & Ed Sheeran’s New Partnership: Elsewhere on the Latin charts, J Balvin and Ed Sheeran’s “Forever My Love” debuts at No. 8 on Latin Pop Airplay with 3 million in audience impressions earned in the U.S. in the week ending March 27.
The bilingual ballad is one of two tracks the pair released March 25 via Atlantic/Colores/Universal Music Latino/UMLE. Both songs concurrently make their Latin Airplay debut with only three days of airplay, where “Forever” starts at No. 36 and “Sigue,” a reggeatón-infused tune, bows at No. 43.
Back on Latin Pop Airplay, Sheeran earns his first top 10 in his fourth try. He previously notched three chart entries with English-language songs between 2015-2018 before the chart changed from being station-based to strictly genre-based.
