Four weeks after Becky G scored her first No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs when “Mamiii,” featuring Karol G, debuted in the penthouse, the song jumps from No. 3 on Latin Pop Airplay to lead the March 19-dated survey.
The new win trails two other Latin charts where the tune concurrently rules for a fourth week: Latin Digital Song Sales and Latin Streaming Songs. On the former, it leads with 1,700 downloads sold, despite a 17% dip in sales, in the week ending March 10, according to MRC Data. On the latter, it holds at the summit despite a 10% decline in streams: the track logged 11.5 million U.S. streams in the same tracking period.
Back on Latin Pop Airplay, “Mamiii” reigns in its fifth week thanks to a 25% gain in audience impressions, to 8 million, earned in the week ending March 13. It marks the fastest ascent in over a year. Rauw Alejandro’s “Todo De Ti” was the last champ to hit No. 1 quicker, with just four weeks before its coronation in June 2021.
Among female artists, Becky G and Karol G’s sprint to the top clocks the speediest time since Shakira when “La Bicicleta,” her collaboration with Carlos Vives, took four weeks to reach the top spot in 2016.
In total, “Mamiii” becomes the 35th of 307 Latin Pop Airplay No. 1s to reach the penthouse in five weeks or better.
While Becky G scores her second No. 1 on Latin Pop Airplay (after “Sin Pijama,” with Natti Natasha, in 2018), Karol G clocks her sixth. Here’s a recap of Karol G’s No. 1s:
Song Title, Artist, Weeks at No. 1, Date Reached No. 1
“Créeme,” with Maluma, one, March 2, 2019
“China,” with Anuel AA, Daddy Yankee, Karol G, Ozuna and J Balvin, two, Oct. 12, 2019
“Tusa,” with Nicki Minaj, 15, Feb. 15, 2020
“Ay, Dios Mio!” one, Oct. 10, 2020
“Location,” four, April 3, 2021
“Mamiii,” Becky G x Karol G, March 19
Beyond its Latin Pop Airplay coronation, “Mamiii” pushes ahead on another Latin chart: it rises 8-3 on the all-genre Latin Airplay, Becky G’s highest ranking since “Ram Pam Pam,” with Natti Natasha, reigned for one week in July 2021.
Banda Los Sebastianes’ “Modo Incógnito” breaks into the top 10: Elsewhere on the Latin charts, Banda Los Sebastianes de Saul Plata score their eighth top 10 on Regional Mexican Airplay as “Modo Incógnito” flies 17-8 thanks to its 3.7 million in audience impressions earned in the week ending March 13, up 25%.
The Horacio Palencia and Nathan Galante-composed track also sees progress on Latin Airplay, where the song surges 41-24.
