Luis Figueroa’s ‘A Escondidas’ Lands in Tropical Airplay Top 10

Luis Figueroa secures his eighth top 10 on Billboard’s Tropical Airplay chart as “A Escondidas” surges 14-7 on the March 23-dated list.

“A Escondidas” lands in the upper region on the tropical radio ranking as the Greatest Gainer of the week, thanks to a 57% gain in audience impressions, to 1.67 million, earned in the U.S. during the March 8-14 tracking week, according to Luminate.

“A Escondidas” follows Figueroa’s last top 10, the two-week No. 1 “Bandido,” which crowned the Oct. 21-28, 2023-dated charts; the only salsa to lead the list that year. All of the other No. 1s were bachatas, a merengue track and one mambo tune.

The new single, the third song on Figueroa’ EP Voy a Ti, nominated for a Grammy for best tropical Latin album in 2023, was co-written by Figueroa and Lenier.

As mentioned, with “A Escondidas,” Figueroa collects his eighth top 10 on Tropical Airplay. Here’s a recap of his top 10 collection:

Peak, Peak Date, Title, Weeks at No. 1
No. 1, July 31, 2021, “Hasta El Sol De Hoy,” one
No. 6, Oct. 30, 2021, “Si Tú Me Dices Ven”
No. 3, Aug. 13, 2022, “Todavía Te Espero”
No. 7, Sept. 10, 2022, “Vienes”
No. 4, Feb. 4, 2023, “Fiesta Contigo”
No. 7, June 3, 2023, “La Luz”
No. 1, Oct. 21, 2023, “Bandido,” two
No. 7, March 23, 2024, “A Escondidas”

Notably, Figueroa earned his first top 10 on Tropical Airplay less than three years ago, placing two or more in every year since, when the one-week champ “Hasta El Sol De Hoy” ruled the July 31, 2021-dated list.

Further, with eight top 10s on his account since 2021, the Puerto Rican breaks out of a tie with Victor Manuelle for the fourth-most top 10s on the decade of the ‘20s. He now trails Prince Royce who continues to lead the pack with 12 top 10s this decade, Romeo Santos’ with 10, and Marc Anthony with nine.

The new chart achievement arrives as Figueroa embarks on his first tour with Victor Manuelle this spring.
