The collab starts at No. 2.
Wisin & Yandel and Rosalía can cross out a new career chart accomplishment, as they each score their highest debut on Billboard’s Latin Airplay. “Besos Moja2,” their first team-up, bows at No. 2 on the March 11-dated list. It’s the highest start for the Puerto Rican duo, after 46 entries, and for Rosalía, who has secured nine since her first chart visit in 2019.
“Besos Moja2” starts with 10.2 million in audience impressions earned in the U.S. during the Feb. 24-March 2 tracking week, according to Luminate.
The new entry on the all-genre tally grants Wisin & Yandel their 28th top 10, which places them into a tie with Ricky Martin for the seventh-most overall, among those, the duo has scored 15 No. 1s. Rosalía, meanwhile, captures her seventh top 10, six of which reached the top of the ranking. Let’s look at the top 10 scoreboard since the chart’s inception in 1994:
46, Daddy Yankee
41, Enrique Iglesias
40, J Balvin
30, Marc Anthony
28, Ricky Martin
28, Wisin & Yandel
It’s taken almost a decade and a half for Wisin & Yandel to roar back with a debut in the upper region. In November 2007, the pair claimed a No. 3 start with “Sexy Movimiento,” which later ruled for one week (January 2008). Previously, the duo collected their first top 10 arrival, at No. 8, through their featured turn in Los Benjamin’s “Noche de Entierro (Nuestro Amor),” which also features Daddy Yankee, Hector ‘El Father’ and Zion, in September 2006 (the song peaked at its No. 6 high a week later where it remained for three weeks).
As mentioned, Wisin & Yandel have collected 15 No. 1s, including the one-week champ “Mayor Que Usted,” with Natti Natasha and Yankee (last September).
For Rosalía, the No. 2 start for “Besos Moja2” is her only top 10 debut among a collection of nine career entries on Latin Airplay. Among those, however, she’s placed six champs, including her last win with “El Pañuelo,” with Romeo Santos (Feb. 25-dated ranking).
“Besos” concurrently debuts at No. 1 on Latin Rhythm Airplay. It becomes Wisin & Yandel’s 20th leader there, tying with Ricky Martin for the fourth-most behind Daddy Yankee and Bad Bunny, both with 34 No. 1s, and Ozuna (29). Rosalía captures her fourth ruler there.
