Anuel AA and Romeo Santos‘ “Ella Quiere Beber” hits No. 1 on the Latin Airplay chart dated Feb. 2, as the song lifts 4-1 in its 19th week. The track advances with a 27 percent increase in audience (to 15.2 million), in the week ending Jan. 27, according to Nielsen Music. It’s the first No. 1 on the list for Anuel, and 16th for Santos.
“One of my dreams was to do a song with Romeo Santos,” Anuel tells Billboard. “Today I’m seeing this one and other dreams materialize, and I can only thank my fans. Thank you for being real until death.”
Though Anuel first secured a spot on the tally in 2017 (“Ayer,” featuring Farruko, debuted at No. 49; April 8, 2017, ranking), as “Ella Quiere” crowns the chart in the current tracking week, Anuel claims his first No. 1. The song bests his highest rank on the list achieved with “Adictiva” with Daddy Yankee (No. 16 peak; Feb. 2, 2019).
For Santos, who first earned a No. 1 in 2011 (“You”; May 28), the lift earns him his 16th leader. It arrives just two months and one day after his previous chart-topper: “Centavito,” which reigned for one week after hanging in the top 10 for four frames.
“Ella Quiere” concurrently tops the Latin Rhythm Airplay chart and earns the Most Increased Audience honor. Both Anuel and Santos clock their first No. 1 on the list.
