One of the biggest producers in música urbana has another hit on his hands.
Following his major Bad Bunny collaboration “Callaíta,” Tainy’s latest single as a lead artist “Adicto” reaches No. 9 in only its second week on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart. The song also features Latin trap star Anuel AA and Guinness World Record-holding reggaetonero Ozuna.
Not surprisingly given the multi-metric nature of the Hot Latin Songs methodology, “Adicto” also thrives on some of Billboard’s other Spanish-language charts. It takes No. 7 on Latin Streaming Songs and No. 11 on Latin Digital Song Sales. The single has yet to appear on Latin Airplay, which ranks the biggest songs on Spanish-language radio stations in the U.S. Once it inevitably charts there, “Adicto” will likely have the necessary combined performance metrics to make it onto the Hot 100, where the aforementioned “Callaíta” has spent the past 13 weeks.
Tainy also has the biggest Spanish-language single in the country this week, as the producer for Anuel AA’s supergroup-styled smash “China” spends another week atop Hot Latin Songs. The single also features J Balvin, Daddy Yankee, Karol G and Ozuna. His “Callaíta” remains at No. 3. Beyond the top ten trio with “Adicto,” Tainy also has producer credit on “Si Supieras” by Daddy Yankee and Wisin & Yandel (No. 19), as well as the Bad Bunny and J Balvin Oasis team-up “Cuidao Por Ahi” (No. 28).
At No. 2 this week on Hot Latin Songs is Sech and Darell’s “Otro Trago,” bolstered in part by its recent remix version with Nicky Jam, Anuel and Ozuna. Daddy Yankee’s summertime blockbuster “Con Calma” stays strong post-Labor Day at No. 4, while Jhay Cortez’s “No Me Conoce” remix retains No. 5. A guest on that latter cut, Bad Bunny appears as a lead or featured artist on “MIA” with Drake (No. 6), “La Canción” with J Balvin (No. 7), Lunay’s “Soltera” (No. 8) and “Qué Pretendes” again with J Balvin (No. 10).
DJ Snake’s “Loco Contigo” with J Balvin and Tyga sticks around at No. 11, its Hot Latin Songs top ten reentry seemingly imminent. Maluma’s “11PM” notches up three slots to No. 12, the highest it has reached in its 16 charting weeks. Spanish singer Rosalía has two urbano singles waiting in the wings, with the recent “Yo X Ti, Tú X Mi” with Ozuna at No. 13 and the enduring J Balvin collab “Con Altura” at No. 14. Up five spots from last week, Pitbull’s “No Lo Trates” with Daddy Yankee and Natti Natasha takes No. 15, proving itself a dark horse contender after 19 qualifying weeks on the chart.
Slightly further down, there are a number of other contenders to keep an eye out for in the coming weeks. Cracking the top twenty, Los Ángeles Azules’ cumbia reggaetón fusion “Amor A Primera Vista” with Belinda, Lalo Ebratt and Horacio Palencia makes it to No. 18. Karol G’s “Ocean” jumps nine places to a new peak at No. 22 in its eighteenth week on the chart, a promising indication of its future prospects.
