BARRIO – Karol G continues to win across the Billboard charts. The Colombian superstar tacks another No. 1 debut to her account, as “TQG,” with Shakira, arrives at No. 1 on the Hot Latin Songs chart.
Mañana Será Bonito now has 13 debuts on Hot Latin Songs, three more that are very close to making the list.
With 16 tracks on the chart concurrently, Karol G makes history as the woman with the most simultaneous songs since the ranking began. Only two other acts have scored more songs: Bad Bunny with between 17 and 24 concurrent songs throughout different periods and Ozuna with 21 titles in September 2018. Plus, with five songs in the top 10, Karol G now holds the record for the most simultaneous top 10s among women.
Fans flooded Times Square for the Shakira collab announcement through social media on Feb. 22, where the song was teased on the big screens. The joint effort by the Colombian stars, plus buzz generated about the narrative of the song (heartbreak and moving on after high-profile breakups), have helped “TQG” bow atop Hot Latin Songs. It becomes just the eighth song by a female act to debut at No. 1 since the chart launched in 1986. Here’s the recap:
Further breaking down the big debut, “TQG” earns multiple achievements:
-It’s the sixth title with a female act in a lead role to debut at No. 1 since the chart launched in 1986.
-It’s the fifth title by a Hispanic female act on a lead tole to debut at No. 1 since the chart’s inception.
-It’s the third pair-up by two female artists in a lead role to debut at No. 1, all including Karol G.
“TQG” also records activity in the other two metrics that influence the Hot Latin Songs chart: radio airplay and song sales. On Latin Airplay, it debuts at No. 27 with 4.29 million in audience impressions. It also accrues 7,000 downloads for a No. 1 start on Latin Digital Song Sales and No. 4 on the overall Digital Song Sales.
