Maluma’s “ADMV” hits No. 1 on the Latin Airplay chart as the song jumps 4-1 on the July 11 survey. It’s his 16th No. 1 on the all-genre list which dates back to his former three-week leader “Borro Cassette” in November 2015.
“I’m super happy,” Maluma tells Billboard. “This 16th No. 1 is extra special because ‘ADMV’ is a ballad that is very close to my heart and it means a lot at this time when the world is going through so much. It’s also amazing that my first Latin Airplay No. 1 was less than five years ago, so I am so thankful for the fans and everyone at radio that have been so supportive.”
“ADMV” (abbreviation for “Amor de mi vida,” which translates to “love of my life”) marks Maluma’s second No. 1 of the year. He previously landed atop the tally with “Que Pena,” with J Balvin, which ruled Latin Airplay for one week on the Feb. 29-dated chart.
“ADMV” hits No. 1 with 12. 3 million in audience impressions (up 45%) earned in the week ending July 5, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
The song was written by Maluma, Edgar Barrera, Vicente Barco, Miky La Sensa and produced by Maluma alongside Barrera.
Maluma breaks away from a tie with Carlos Vives and Wisin for the seventh-most No. 1s since the chart’s inception in 1994. He stands behind Enrique Iglesias who continues at the top with 30 No. 1s, J Balvin with 22, Daddy Yankee (20), Ozuna (19), and Ricky Martin and Romeo Santos, both with 17.
In addition to his new No. 1 on Latin Airplay, Maluma collects his ninth leader on Latin Pop Airplay as “ADMV” hikes 5-1.
Beyond his Latin Airplay and Latin Pop coronation, “ADMV” makes progress on the airplay-, streaming- and sales-based Hot Latin Songs chart, lifting 19-14.
Over on Latin Digital Song Sales, “ADMV” jumps 24-16 (though, with less than 1,000 downloads sold in the week ending July 2).
