Karol G secures her 16th No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart as “Mi Ex Tenía Razón” rises 3-1 in its seventh chart week to lead the Oct. 7-dated ranking.

“Mi Ex Tenía Razón” was released Aug. 11 as part of Karol’s Mañana Será Bonito (Bichota Season) which took her to No. 1 on Top Latin Albums (Aug. 26-dated list). The track arrives at the summit on the overall Latin Airplay after it earned 9.8 million audience impressions in the U.S. in the week ending Sept. 28, according to Luminate, a 16% gain from the week prior. Plus, it ejects Chencho Corleone’s “Un Cigarrillo” from the lead and sends it to No. 9, after one week in charge (6.41million in audience, down 28%)

With the new leader, Karol becomes the first woman to achieve a No. 1 as a soloist, unaccompanied by any other act, in 2023. The last woman to do so was Rosalía, who accomplished the feat through “Despechá” in Oct. 2022.

In total, among Karol G’s 16 No. 1s, she’s led the Latin Airplay chart five times, unaccompanied by another act. Her first leader overall was “Mi Cama,” with J Balvin, featuring Nicky Jam, in 2018.

Prior to “Razón,” “Provenza” became Karol’s last totally solo ruler, for one week in charge in July 2022. In between, “TQG,” a collaboration with Shakira, spent two weeks at No. 1.

“Razón’s” new peak on Latin Airplay, arrives after its one-week coronation on Hot Latin Songs (Aug. 26-dated list), where it dips 5-6 on the current chart with a 7% decrease in streams, to 7.56 million, and an 18% fall in sales during the same period.

Beyond its Latin Airplay coronation, “Razón” also pushes up Regional Mexican Airplay, climbing 39-23. The song earned Karol a first entry there when it debuted at No. 39 (Sept. 30-dated list).
