Double Win for Rosalía & The Weeknd: ‘La Fama’ Hits No. 1 on Latin Airplay & Tropical Airplay Charts

Rosalía and The Weeknd add a new No. 1 to their Billboard chart careers as “La Fama” lands its first week at No. 1 on a radio chart twice over: The bachata tops both the Latin Airplay and Tropical Airplay lists on the May 14-dated ranking. It’s the first win for the pair on the latter.

“La Fama” conquers the all-Latin genre Latin Airplay tally with 10.7 million in audience impressions, a 33% boost – the Greatest Gainer of the week — earned in the U.S. in the week ending May 8, according to Luminate. While Rosalía scores her fourth leader, The Weeknd secures his second.

The track jumps 4-1 and sends Shakira and Rauw Alejandro’s “Te Felicito” to No. 3 after its one-week reign. Becky G and Karol G hold at No. 2 with “Mamiii” — also after its one-week coronation — the result of a 7% dip in audience. All top three titles belong to Sony Music.

“La Fama” is the fourth song to rule both Latin Airplay and Tropical Airplay simultaneously in 2022, notably all Sony Music titles, except for one. Here is the list of winners:

  • “Se Menea,” Don Omar & Nio Garcia, Jan. 15-22
  • “Sus Huellas,” Romeo Santos, Feb. 26 and April 30
  • “Mala,” Marc Anthony, March 12
  • “La Fama,” Rosalía & The Weeknd, May 14

Over on Tropical Airplay, “La Fama” steps to the summit in its 17th week. It’s a new radio win for both acts. The song emerged on the all-metric Hot Latin Songs chart (dated Nov. 27-dated list) as a streaming success, generating 6.75 million U.S. clicks in its first tracking week ending in Nov. 11, 2021 – the most-streamed Latin song of the week. It moved to radio three weeks later, debuting at No. 14 on the Jan. 22-dated ranking.

The song’s 2-1 jump sends Romeo Santos’ “Tus Huellas” to runner-up slot after its 12-week lead.
