Grupo Frontera & Christian Nodal’s ‘Ya Pedo Quien Sabe’ Tops Regional Mexican Airplay Chart

Grupo Frontera and Christian Nodal‘s first collaboration, “Ya Pedo Quien Sabe,” glides 3-1 on Billboard‘s Regional Mexican Airplay chart (dated May 11). The new joint champ marks the eighth No. 1 for Grupo Frontera and 17th for Nodal. All eight of Grupo Frontera’s leaders are collaborations.

The duet crowns Regional Mexican Airplay after a 17% gain in audience impressions, to 7.8 million, earned in the U.S. during the April 26-May 2 tracking week, according to Luminate. “Ya Pedo Quien Sabe” was released March 7 via the Grupo Frontera label. The song is the second cut from Frontera’s forthcoming album, Jugando A Que No Pada Nada (slated for May 10 release).

“Ya Pedo” was composed by Edgar Barrera, Horacio Palencia, Nathan Galante and Diego Bollella and produced by Barrera.

As the dynamo collaboration takes the lead on Regional Mexican Airplay, it becomes the fourth team-up by a group and a soloist in 2024 to top the list. Here’s the recap:

Chart Date, Title, Artist, Weeks at No. 1
Feb. 3, “Harley Quinn,” Fuerza Regida & Marshmello, one
March 2, “Alch Si,” Carín León + Grupo Frontera, one
April 13, “La Cumbia Triste,” Los Angeles Azules y Alejandro Fernández, one
May 11, “Ya Pedo Quien Sabe,” Grupo Frontera & Christian Nodal

With “Ya Pedo,” Nodal extends his record for the most No. 1s among soloists, with 17 champs in his account since the chart’s inception in November 1994. Plus, he enters a tie with La Arrolladora Banda el Limón de René Camacho for the fifth-most rulers in the Regional Mexican Airplay’s chart’s nearly 30-year history. They trail Calibre 50 who remains at the lead, way ahead of its next competitor, with 25 No. 1s, Banda MS de Sergio Lizárraga with 20, Intocable (19) and Banda El Recodo de Cruz Lizárraga (18).

Grupo Frontera picks-up its eighth No. 1; a collection that began a little over a year ago, when “Que Vuelvas,” with Carín León, topped the Regional Mexican radio ranking for six weeks starting the Jan. 28, 2023-dated list.

Further, “Ya Pedo” takes the crown from Calibre 50’s “Días Buenos, Días Malos” after the latter’s one week in charge. The song drops to No. 14, marking the biggest fall from No. 1 since Los Temerarios’ “Sin Que Lo Sepas Tú” equally tumbled 1-14 in 2007.

With the Regional Mexican Airplay locked, “Ya Pedo” next looks to give each act a new No. 1 on the overall Latin Airplay chart, where it climbs 10-5 with a 16% gain, and adds 8 million in audience.
