Bad Bunny & Feid’s ‘Pero Negro’ Takes Over Latin Airplay Chart

By Michael Apr 18, 2024

Just three months after he last commanded Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart, Bad Bunny is back in charge as his single “Perro Negro,” with Feid, jumps 2-1 to rule the April 20-dated ranking. It’s Bad Bunny’s 25th No. 1 and Feid’s sixth.

On the overall Latin Airplay ranking, “Perro Negro” moves ahead of Eladio Carrión’s “TQMQA,” after accruing 9 million audience impressions in the U.S., a 5% gain, in the week ending April 11, according to Luminate. As “Perro Negro” trades places with “TQMQA,” the latter falls to No. 2, after one week in charge, with 8.8 million impressions, that’s an 8% dip from the previous week.

“Perro Negro” earns the gold medal for its first week and joins 13 other songs that hit No. 1 in 2024. Notably, only three out of those rulers secured two weeks or more atop (including Maluma and Carin León’s “Según Quién” which ruled for four weeks between 2023-24) while the other 10 rulers passed on the crown after only one week in charge. Here’s the updated look at those 2024 champs:

Title, Artist, Weeks at No. 1
“Según Quién,” Maluma & Carin León, four
“Bubalu,” Feid & Rema, two
“Monaco,” Bad Bunny, one
“Harley Quinn,” Fuerza Regida & Marshmello, one
“La Diabla,” Xavi, two
“Borracho y Loco,” Yandel & Myke Towers, one
“La Falda,” Myke Towers, one
“Qlona,” Karol G & Peso Pluma, one
“Por El Contrario,” Becky G with Leonardo Aguilar & Angela Aguilar, one
“No Es Normal,” Venesti, Nacho & Maffio, one
“Baccarat,” Ozuna, one
“Puntería,” Shakira & Cardi B, one
“TQMQA,” Eladio Carrión, one
“Perro Negro,” Bad Bunny & Feid

“Perro Negro” becomes the fourth song from Bad Bunny’s Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana to hit No. 1 on Latin Airplay, following one-week rulers “Where She Goes” (August 2023), “Un Preview” (Dec. 2023) and “Monaco” (Jan. 27-dated list).

Benito’s Latin Airplay chart run began with the No. 1-peaking “Mayores,” with Becky G, on the Feb. 17, 2018-dated survey. He’s placed at least two No. 1s every year since then, for a total of 25 career rulers out of 47 entries on the ranking. Bad Bunny has the fifth-most No. 1s on Latin Airplay, with J Balvin in the lead with 36 leaders.

Notably, Bad Bunny boasts his longest-leading No. 1s on Latin Airplay through two collabs with acts outside of his core Latin rhythm genre: “Mia,” featuring rapper Drake, and “Un X100to,” with regional Mexican Grupo Frontera, both for six weeks in charge in 2018-19 and 2023, respectively.

Feid, meanwhile, boasts his sixth No. 1 on the radio ranking.

Elsewhere, “Perro Negro” rebounds 6-5 on the multi-metric Hot Latin Songs, which combines airplay, streams, and downloads, following two weeks at its No. 2 high beginning last November. The song dips 10-11 on Latin Streaming Songs despite a 1% gain in streaming, to 4.8 million during the tracking period.
