Sebastian Yatra picks up his eighth No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Pop Airplay chart as “Una Noche Sin Pensar” rises 2-1 to lead the May 27-dated list. The new leader follows the six-week champ “Tacones Rojos,” Yatra’s longest-leading track on the list (two weeks at No. 1 in January, with four earlier weeks at No. 1 in February-March of 2022).
“Una Noche Sin Pensar” hits No. 1 in its 13th week on the ranking with a 20% gain in audience impressions, to 10.2 million, earned in the U.S. in the week ending May 18, according to Luminate. It sends Karol G and Shakira’s “TQG” to No 2 after four weeks in charge.
With the new champ, Yatra improves his career total of Latin Pop Airplay No. 1s to eight, and enters a tie with Chayanne for the eighth-most No. 1s among Latin pop male acts, a mark helmed by Enrique Iglesias with a total of 25 since the chart began in 1994. Here’s a look at those Latin male artists with the most No. 1 Latin pop songs:
25, Enrique Iglesias
12, Ricky Martin
11, Cristian Castro
10, Luis Fonsi
10, Luis Miguel
10, Ricardo Arjona
8, Sebastián Yatra
At 13 weeks, “Una Noche” ties for Yatra’s second-longest trek to the summit among his eight rulers. “TBT,” with Rauw Alejandro and Manuel Turizo, also needed 13 weeks on its way to a three-week takeover in June 2020. Meanwhile, “Bonita” with Juanes outpaced both tracks, hitting No. 1 in its eighth week in November 2019.
Beyond its Latin Pop Airplay coronation, “Una Noche” climbs to its new No. 3 high, from No. 6, on Latin Airplay, Yatra’s highest ranking since “Tacones Rojos” placed him at the penthouse for one week in February 2022.
Shakira’s ‘Acróstico’ Lands: Elsewhere on Latin Pop Airplay, Shakira captures her 41st top 10 with “Acróstico” at No. 6. The intimate piano ballad, which includes vocals by her sons Milan and Sasha, was released May 11 with a lyric video via Sony Music Latin. According to Luminate, the track generated 2.6 million audience impressions after its first tracking week.
With 41 top 10s on her chart account, Shakira continues to rank third among all acts, only behind Enrique Iglesias, who leads with 45 top 10s, and Ricky Martin’s 42.
Further, “Acróstico” also makes its debut across Billboard charts: No. 11 on Billboard Global Excl. U.S., No. 13 on Global 200, No. 16 on the multi-metric Hot Latin Songs chart, No. 39 on Latin Airplay, and No. 84 on Billboard Hot 100.
