J Balvin and Khalid’s first collaboration, “Otra Noche Sin Ti,” debuts at No. 5 on the Hot Latin Songs chart (dated April 24). The track earns Khalid his first entry and first top 10 on any Latin chart. J Balvin collects his 32nd top 10.
The song, a fusion of slow-tempo perreo and R&B, rallied to 5.6 million U.S. streams in the week ending April 15, according to MRC Data, after its first tracking week (it was released on April 9). The track also lands a No. 4 start on Latin Streaming Songs.
Sales, too, help its top five debut on the airplay-, digital sales and streaming-blended Hot Latin Songs list: “Otra Noche” registers 1,000 downloads, enough for a No. 4 launch on Latin Digital Songs.
“Otra Noche” joins another Balvin track on Hot Latin Songs. His recently released “Tu Veneno” (March 19), which is also part of Balvin’s forthcoming album, holds at No. 9 for a second week after its No. 6 debut and peak (April 3-dated tally).
Khalid, who secured his first Billboard Hot 100 chart entry with “Location” in 2017, makes his Hot Latin Songs chart debut with “Otra Noche Sin Ti.” He’s one of a number of primarily English-language recording artists to make their Hot Latin Songs debut straight into the top 10 in the past 12 months. He follows Snoop Dogg, Travis Scott, 6ix9ine, Dua Lipa, The Weeknd, Doja Cat and Sia. (All but 6ix9ine scored their debuts through a collaboration with an established Spanish-language recording artist.)
“Otra Noche” concurrently debuts on both Billboard Global charts: at No. 72 on the Billboard Global 200 and at No. 89 on the Global Excl. U.S. list. The song was produced by Lexus and songwriter Keityn, who also co-wrote Karol G’s “Tusa” and Sebastian Yatra and Guaynna’s “Chica Ideal.”
Los Legendarios’ Second Top 10: Elsewhere on Hot Latin Songs, producers Los Legendarios secure their second top 10 as “Fiel,” with Wisin and Jhay Cortez, jumps 12-7. It’s the second top 10 for Los Legendarios who just earned their first less than three months ago through another collaboration with Wisin “Mi Niña,” with Myke Towers (No. 10; Jan. 9-dated list).
“Fiel” pushes up the chart mainly boosted by streams. The song logged 4.7 million in the week ending April 15 (up 19%). As it takes the Greatest Gainer/Streaming trophy on the chart, it jumps 6-5 on Latin Streaming Songs. Wisin scores his 12th top 10 and Cortez his seventh.
