Alejandro Fernández & Alfredo Olivas Bring ‘Cobijas Ajenas’ to No. 1 on Latin Airplay Chart

Alfredo Olivas scores his first No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart thanks to the Alejandro Fernández collab, “Cobijas Ajenas,” as the song climbs from No. 8 to lead the list dated June 8.

“Cobijas Ajenas” rolls to No. 1 on the overall Latin radio tally thanks to a 49% gain in audience impressions, to 8.73 million, earned in the U.S. during the May 24-30 tracking week, according to Luminate. The hit is from Fernández’ full-length album Te Llevo En La Sangre, released May 24 via Universal Music Latino/UMLE.

The song ejects Blessd and Feid’s “Si Sabe Ferxxo” from the lead, after the latter’s one week in charge, with a hefty 19% dip in impressions, to 6.9 million.

“Cobijas” is a cause of celebration for singer-songwriter Olivas, as the radio ramp-up brings him to his first champ on Latin Airplay. Before the new leader, “Yo Todo Soy” gave him his best showing, with a No. 5 high in 2021. The Mexican artist later picked up the No. 7-peaking “No” in April 2022.

Fernández, meanwhile, returns to No. 1 following the one-week ruling of “No Es Que Me Quiera Ir” in August 2023. In total, he adds 11 rulers to his Latin Airplay career account, only two through collabs. As Fernández’s collection of rulers grows, here’s the updated list of his Latin Airplay chart-toppers:

Peak Date, Title, Artist, Weeks at No. 1

  • Oct. 18, 1997, “Si Tú Supieras,” six
  • Dec. 27, 1997, “En El Jardín,” featuring Gloria Estefan, six
  • March 14, 1998, “No Se Olvidar,” eight
  • July 18, 1998, “Yo Nací Para Amarte,” five
  • Aug. 21, 1999, “Loco,” one
  • Dec. 1, 2001, “Tantita Pena,” six
  • Oct. 23, 2004, “Me Dediqué a Perderte,” two
  • Feb. 6, 2010, “Se Me Va La Voz,” one
  • Jan. 4, 2020, “Caballero,” two
  • Aug. 5, 2023, “No Es Que Me Quiera Ir,” one
  • June 8, “Cobijas Ajenas,” with Alfredo Olivas

In addition to their Latin Airplay coronation, Fernández and Olivas, each add a new No. 1 to their Regional Mexican Airplay ledger as “Cobijas” lifts 2-1: nine for the former, and a fourth champ for the latter.

Lastly, thanks to its radio haul, “Cobijas Ajenas” concurrently debuts on the multimetric Hot Latin Songs chart, which combines airplay, streaming data and digital downloads, at No. 49.
