El Fantasma’s ‘El Exitoso’ Travels to No. 1 on Regional Mexican Airplay Chart

By Michael Mar 14, 2024

El Fantasma’s “El Exitoso” continues to find success on Billboard’s Latin airplay charts (dated March 16) as the track surges 5-1 on Regional Mexican Airplay and rallies 18-2 on the overall Latin Airplay tally.

“El Exitoso” climbs 5-1 on Regional Mexican Airplay with a robust 72% gain in audience impressions, to 8.3 million, earned during the March 1-7 tracking week, according to Luminate.

As “El Exitoso,” released last October via Afinarte, advances to the summit, it ejects “Por El Contrario,” by Becky G, Leonardo Aguilar, and Angela Aguilar, from the lead. The latter falls to No. 3 with a 20% drop in impressions, to 6.8 million.

With the new success, El Fantasma captures his sixth No. 1 on Regional Mexican Airplay, which began when “Encantadora” took over the radio ranking for four weeks in 2019. Here’s a recap of all the champs:

Peak, Title, Artist, Weeks at No. 1
June 1, 2019, “Encantadora,” four
Aug. 14, 2021, “Soy Buen Amigo,” one
Sept. 25, 2021, “Tus Desprecios,” with Pepe Aguilar, one
Oct. 1, 2022, “Soldado Caído,” one
Sept. 9, 2023, “La Vida Cara,” one
March 16, 2024, “El Exitoso”

Thanks to “El Exitoso,” Afinarte leads Regional Mexican Airplay for a second term in 2024, after the label last led through Los Dos Carnales’s “Gracias a Ti,” for one week in charge on the Feb. 24-dated list. The label picks up its 10th champ overall.

Beyond its Regional Mexican Radio reign, “El Exitoso” also conquers new territory on the overall Latin Airplay ranking, where it flies No. 18-2. With the rise, El Fantasma collects his 10th top 10 there, and achieves his best chart performance to date. Previously the singer-songwriter reached a high of No. 4 with “El Selectivo” in May 2023.
