Banda Los Sebastianes de Saúl Plata & Edgardo Nuñez Unite at No. 1 on Regional Mexican Airplay Chart

Banda Los Sebastianes de Saúl Plata and Edgardo Nuñez celebrate the success of “El Humo De Mi Gallo,” their first collaboration, which rises from No. 3 to lead Billboard’s Regional Mexican Airplay chart dated June 29.

“I’m extremely happy that we are in first place with ‘El Humo De Mi Gallo’,” Armando Celis, better known as Choco and vocalist for Los Sebastianes, tells Billboard. “Thank you to all who are listening to our music.”


The new No. 1 gives Nuñez a second leader, after the 23-year-old scored his first No. 1 on any Billboard chart just two months ago, when “First Love,” with Oscar Ortiz, ruled for one week in April.

“I feel very happy and grateful that in such a short time we have achieved two No. 1s on Billboard,” Nuñez adds. “For me it is a great honor to be in this prestigious magazine thanks to our work. I am always grateful to my friends Los Sebastianes and Oscar Ortiz for these achievements.”

“El Humo De Mi Gallo” leads with 6.1 million audience impressions earned during the June 14-20 tracking week, according to Luminate. That’s a 13% increase from the week prior. That gain dethrones El Fantasma’s “Sabor a Michelada” which falls to No. 2 with 5.4 million impressions, down 36%.

With “Humo” Banda Los Sebastianes de Saúl Plata capture their sixth leader. They last led two years ago through “Modo Incógnito” in April 2022. Since then, the Sinaloans placed three entries, including the No. 10 peaking “Promteo,” with Kurt.

“Grateful for our audience, both at radio and shows, who request our songs,” Javier Larrañaga, the latest vocalist for Los Sebastianes, shares. “We are happy with all of you and look forward to more music, great things coming ahead.”

Beyond its Regional Mexican Airplay coronation, “Humo” rises 10-6 on the overall Latin Airplay ranking, for its new peak, the highest entry for Los Sebastianes since the equal No. 6 high “Sin Miedo al Éxito” in 2021.

Thalia Returns To The Top 10: Elsewhere on the Latin charts, Thalia makes a strong comeback to the upper region on Latin Airplay with “Te Va a Doler,” her first Grupo Firme collab, which flies 12-3 with 6.6 million audience impressions, up 23%.

The surge marks Thalia’s first top 10 on Latin Airplay since 2013, when “Te Perdiste Mi Amor,” featuring Prince Royce, reached No. 1 in 2013. Plus, the song, which ascends 4-2 on Latin Pop Airplay, marks the pop star’s best showing in over a decade and a half, following an equal No. 2 peak though “Equivicada” in Feb. 2010.

Further, Grupo Firme, who also scored their first entry on a pop radio ranking when “Te Va a Doler” debuted in the top 15 on Latin Pop Airplay in May, capture its 10th top 10 on the overall Latin Airplay tally.
