Banda Los Recoditos’ ‘Vas A Querer Volver’ Hits No. 1 on Regional Mexican Airplay

Banda Los Recoditos add an eighth No. 1 to their ledger as “Vas A Querer Volver” jumps 2-1 on Billboard’s Regional Mexican Airplay chart dated Jan. 6.

“It’s great news to start off the year this way,” Rafael Gónzalez and Santos de Jesús Pérez “JeyPi”, lead singers of Banda Los Recoditos tells Billboard. “Being No. 1 on a Billboard chart makes us happy and creates a stronger commitment to work on new music for our fans.”

“Vas a Querer Volver,” which entered the top 10 in its eighth chart week, at No. 8, ascends from the runner-up slot with a 3% increase in audience impressions, to 6.9 million, earned in the U.S. during the Dec. 22-28 tracking week, according to Luminate. The song ejects Grupo Frontera and Junior H’s “En Altavoz” from the lead and sends it to No. 9 with a 33% decrease, to 4.9 million impressions.

As “Volver” takes the lead on Regional Mexican Airplay, UMLE claims the chart’s top four titles – a feat the company has achieved many times over the past decade. On the chart dated Jan. 6, UMLE has “Volver” at No. 1 (released via El Recodo/Fonovisa/UMLE), Julión Álvarez y Su Norteño Banda’s “Buscándole a La Suerte” at No. 2 (released via Fonovisa/UMLE), La Fiera de Ojinaga’s “La Neta Que No” at No. 3 and La Maquinaria Norteña’s “Perro Amor” at No. 4, both via Azteca/Fonovisa/UMLE.

UMLE last claimed the top four in 2022, when it held the Nos. 1-4 slots for four straight weeks on the April 2-23-dated lists. UMLE is the only label to have monopolized the top four on the chart in the last 10 years.

With “Volver” Los Recoditos score their eighth champ, dating back to “Ando Bien Pedo,” their longest-charting ruler, with 12 weeks atop in 2010. Here’s a review of the groups’ collections of No. 1s on the radio chart:
