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 dominate the April 2-dated survey.

DJ Snake is now the No. 3 in the April 2-dated survey. 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. 1s on the 27-year-old survey:

33, J Balvin
32, Enrique Iglesias
27, Ozuna
25, Daddy Yankee
21, Maluma
20, Wisin
19, Romeo Santos

The bilingual “SG” (and its music video) was officially released Oct 22, 2021, via DJ Snake/Interscope. It did not make its Latin Airplay debut until February, when it reached No. 37 on the Feb. 19-dated ranking. It wraps up a seven-week journey 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 simultaneously 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 reggeaton-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.
