Bad Bunny Achieves 23rd No. 1 on Latin Airplay With ‘Un Preview’

A week after crowning multiple Billboard year-end charts, Bad Bunny adds a new chart achievement to his roster as “Un Preview” ascends 2-1 on the Latin Airplay ranking dated Dec. 2. The song’s new coronation follows its command on Latin Rhythm Airplay, for a third week in charge.

“Un Preview” checks into the penthouse on Latin Airplay with 10.3 million audience impressions earned in the U.S. during the Nov. 17-23 tracking week, according to Luminate. That’s a 14% gain from the week prior, which sends Myke Towers’ “LaLa” to No. 6, after two weeks atop, with 16% dip, to 7.8 million impressions.

As “Preview” takes the lead, Bad Bunny earns his 23rd champ, thus tying with Maluma for the fifth-most No. 1s overall, since Latin Airplay began in 1994. As the Top Latin Artist of 2023 “previews” a new No. 1, here’s the list of all artists with as many or more:

  • 36, J Balvin
  • 33, Ozuna
  • 32, Enrique Iglesias
  • 28, Daddy Yankee
  • 23, Bad Bunny
  • 23, Maluma

The new No. 1 also continues Bad Bunny’s chart-topping achievements as a soloist. Among his 23 champs, “Preview” becomes his eighth solo leader, unaccompanied by any other act. Further, it’s the second No. 1 song as a soloist with an English-language title, after “Where She Goes” topped Latin Airplay last August. Let’s take a look at those solo winners:
