A Sweet Ascent: Ozuna’s ‘Caramelo’ Hits No. 1 on Latin Airplay Chart

As Ozuna’s “Caramelo” hits No. 1 on the Latin Airplay chart (dated Aug. 15), he nabs his 20th leader on the list which launched in 1994. The song hikes 5-1 in its eighth week on the chart (up 41% in audience impressions to 1 million, in the week ending Aug. 9, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data).

The new achievement places him in a tie with Daddy Yankee for the third-most No. 1s among all acts on Latin Airplay, both with 20. Above them are only Enrique Iglesias who continues at the helm with 31 No. 1s and J Balvin with 23.

“I am extremely grateful for the great support and acceptance that ‘Caramelo’ has had,” Ozuna tells Billboard. “I’m super happy with the news that there are already 20 No. 1 singles in my career. We are working hard to continue providing good music. Stand by for ENOC, coming soon.” “Caramelo” is the first cut off ENOC, Ozuna’s forthcoming album, due out later in the year.

Ozuna previously ruled Latin Airplay with “Mamacita,” with the Black Eyed Peas and J.Rey Soul (June 20-dated list).

Beyond his Latin Airplay No. 1 arrival, “Caramelo” remains at No. 6 on Hot Latin Songs, which blends airplay, streaming data and digital sales, for a third nonconsecutive week. It scored a 3% increase in streams, with 4 million U.S. clicks in the week ending Aug. 6.

As Ozuna’s “Caramelo” arrives atop Latin Airplay, let’s take a look at the mainly male-dominated leaderboard of acts with the most No. 1s:

31, Enrique Iglesias

23, J Balvin

20, Daddy Yankee
