Mana Becomes Group With Most No. 1s on Latin Airplay Chart, Thanks to Nicky Jam Collaboration

Lunes, septiembre 26th, 2016

Maná and Nicky Jam leap 7-1 on Latin Airplay with their collaborative single “De Piez a Cabeza” soaring 47 percent at radio to 15 million audience impressions in the week ending Sept. 18, according to Nielsen Music. The rise gives Nicky Jam his fourth chart-topper while Maná earns its 11th No. 1. Maná now has the most No. 1s among duos or groups; they were previously tied with Wisin & Yandel, with 10.

5 Things to Watch for in Mana’s Latino Power Tour

Among all acts, Enrique Iglesias leads with 28 No. 1s in the nearly 22-year history of the chart. He’s followed by Ricky Martin (with 15), Carlos Vives (12) and then Marc Anthony, Gloria Estefan, Maná, Romeo Santos and Shakira — all with 11 each.

The new single is a revamped version of Maná’s 1992 version of the song, from the group’s debut charting album, Donde Jugaron Los Niños?

Puerto Rican radio stations are largely responsible for the No. 1 climb. Out of the top 10 stations with the highest weekly audiences, five are from the island. San Juan’s WKAQ contributes 1.4 million audience impressions, while WODA, San Juan supplies 1 million. New York’s WSKQ, however, tops all of the stations with 3 million audience impressions counting towards its rank.

Over on Hot Latin Songs (which blends airplay, sales, and streams), “De Pies a Cabeza” lands in the top 10, flying 17-8 in its sixth charting frame. Along with Airplay Gainer honors, digital downloads also aid in the climb with an 11 percent hike (to 1,000 downloads in the week ending Sept. 15).
