Karol G Achieves Rare Feat at No. 1 on Latin Airplay Chart With ‘Ay, Dios Mio!’

Karol G earns her eighth No. 1 on the Latin Airplay chart, as “Ay Dios Mio” jumps 6-1 on the Oct. 10 survey.

With the song’s coronation, Karol G becomes the first female artist to lead the chart in 2020 without a collaborative act. The last woman to achieve the feat was Natti Natasha with “Me Gusta” (May 18, 2019-dated list).

Earlier in 2020, before “Ay, Dios Mio!,” there were four No. 1s with either co-billed or featured female acts:

Title, Artist, Peak Date

“Tusa,” Karol G & Nicki Minaj, Feb. 15

“Mamacita,” Black Eyed Peas, Ozuna + J.Rey Soul, June 20

“Caramelo,” Ozuna, Karol G, Myke Towers, Aug. 15

“Relacion,” Sech, Daddy Yankee & J Balvin Featuring ROSALIA & Farruko, Sept. 26

“Ay, Dios Mío!” hits No. 1 assisted by a 30 percent increase in audience impressions, to 11 million, earned in the week ending Oct. 4, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

Notably, out of the 32 No. 1 titles on Latin Airplay in 2020, 15 were credited to just one act, while the other 17 were billed to multiple artists, and, of the 15 No. 1s by just one act, 14 were by men or all-male groups.

Elsewhere on the charts, “Ay, Dios Mío!” also arrives at the summit on both Latin Rhythm Airplay and Latin Pop Airplay, Karol’s eighth and fourth leader, respectively.

Gains at the Latin Airplay sector help push “Ay, Dios Mío!” upward on Hot Latin Songs, which combines airplay, streaming data and digital sales. The track lifts 7-5 and takes the Greatest Gainer/ Airplay honor.

“Ay, Dios Mío!,” meanwhile makes its first appearance on the all-genre Hot 100 chart, arriving at No, 94.
