It’s Juanes’ first leader in over two years.

As “Bonita” moves 10-1 on the Latin Airplay chart (dated Nov. 16), both Juanes and Sebastián Yatra secure a new No. 1 on the list.

The collaboration is Juanes’ 12th No. 1 and first leader since 2016 when “Fuego” ruled for one week. Yatra, meanwhile claims his sixth, four of which have arrived in 2019.

Their first collaborative effort, “Bonita” pushes to the top with a 56% gain in audience impressions (to 8.9 million), in the week ending Nov. 10, according to Nielsen Music. It remains atop the Latin Pop Airplay chart for a second week.

Over on Hot Latin Songs, which blends airplay, streaming data and digital sales, “Bonita” continues its ascent jumping 32-29 with a 20% gain in digital sales, though down 9% in streams.

While Yatra’s No. 1s have all been through collaborations, “Bonita” is Juanes’ second collaborative No. 1. He clocked his first ruler with “Fotografía,” with Nelly Furtado in 2003, a former five-week ruler.
