Karol G’s ‘Si Antes Te Hubiera Conocido’ Debuts at No. 2 on Hot Latin Songs

Karol G achieves her 27th top 10 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart as “Si Antes Te Hubiera Conocido” debuts at No. 2 on the July 6-dated list. The song, released June 21 via Bichota/Interscope/ICLG, launches in the upper region three months after “Contigo,” with Tiesto, finished its four-week run in the top 10.

“Si Antes Te Hubiera Conocido” starts at No. 2 with activity across all metrics integrated into Hot Latin Songs (airplay, streams and sales). In the July 21-27 tracking week, the song recorded 11.9 million official U.S. streams, according to Luminate. Thanks to that sum, the song opens at No. 33 on the overall Streaming Songs chart and an No. 2 on Latin Streaming Songs.

For the remaining metrics that contribute to Hot Latin Songs, song sales and radio airplay, “Si Antes Te Hubiera Conocido” sold 2,000 downloads in the same period for a second week atop Latin Digital Song Sales. Plus, it starts at No. 29 on the overall Latin Airplay chart with 4.1 million audience impressions.

With “Si Antes Te Hubiera Conocido’s” No. 2 entrance, Karol G claims her 27th top 10, and 10th unaccompanied by another artist. Her first top 10 unaccompanied by another act was the No. 5-peaking “Ay, Diso Mío” in 2020. Of her 27 top 10s, eight reached No. 1. Her most recent leader was “Qlona,” with Peso Pluma, for five weeks in 2023. 

Notably, Karol and Gloria Estefan remain the only two women to debut in the top two on Hot Latin Songs with titles unaccompanied by another artist. Karol has debuted in the top two with three solo, unaccompanied songs (“Si Antes Te Hubiera Conocido,” “Mi Ex Tenía Razón” and “Provenza”) and Estefan did it with “Hotel Nacional” in 2012.

Beyond Karol’s No. 2 debut on Hot Latin Songs, the merengue-based track places Karol back on the top 10 on Tropical Airplay after almost eight years, where “Conocido” rallies 18-3 in its third week. Her first and last visit to the top 10 arrived through “Casi Nada” in 2016.

Further, “Si Antes” grants Karol her 31st career entry on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100, with a No. 34 start.
