Pedro Tovar Hits No. 1 on Latin Songwriters Chart, Thanks to Eslabon Armado Tracks

Pedro Tovar debuts at No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Songwriters chart, thanks to nine writing credits on the latest Hot Latin Songs ranking (dated Aug. 1).

The tracks all appear on Eslabon Armado’s new LP Vibras de Noche, which opens at No. 1 on the Top Latin Albums chart with 23,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, earning the trio its first leader on the list.

Tovar is credited as the sole songwriter on all nine songs. He’s also credited as a co-producer on the tracks and debuts at No. 2 on the Latin Producers chart.

Of Tovar’s nine writing and producing credits on Hot Latin Songs, “Dame Tu Calor” leads at No. 5.

Rank, Artist Billing, Title (producers in addition to Tovar)
No. 5, Eslabon Armado, “Dame Tu Calor” (Maurilio Pineda Jr.)
No. 15, Eslabon Armado, “Tal Vez” (Pineda Jr.)

Tovar’s production partner Maurilio Pineda Jr. is credited as a co-producer on eight of the nine Armado tracks above, sparking the latter’s No. 3 arrival on the Latin Producers chart.

Meanwhile, Tainy logs his 40th week at No. 1 on Latin Producers, powered by eight production credits on the latest Hot Latin Songs chart. Bad Bunny’s “Yo Perreo Sola” (co-produced with Subelo Neo and Bad Bunny) is tops among them at No. 3.

The weekly Latin Songwriters and Latin Producers charts are based on total points accrued by a songwriter and producer, respectively, for each attributed song that appears on the Hot Latin Songs chart; As with Billboard’s yearly recaps, multiple writers or producers split points for each song equally (and the dividing of points will lead to occasional ties on rankings).
