The Black Eyed Peas, Ozuna and J.Rey Soul’s “Mamacita” hits the top 10 on the Hot Latin Songs chart (dated Jun 6) climbing 17-7. It’s the second top 10 for the Peas, the 22nd for Ozuna, and first for J.Rey Soul.
With “Mamacita’s” rise to the top 10, Black Eyes Peas have two concurrent top 10s, as “Ritmo (Bad Boys for Life),” with J Balvin, sits at No. 1 for a 19th nonconsecutive week.
“Ritmo” marked the group’s return to the chart for the first time since 2011, and first top 10. The Hot Latin Songs chart blends airplay, digital sales and streaming activity.
“Mamacita” is the Peas’ first collaboration with singer-songwriter J.Rey Soul (real name: Jessica Reynoso), but not the last — as the Filipina will be contributing to the Peas’ forthcoming album.
“Mamacita” samples Madonna’s 1987 hit single “La Isla Bonita,” which reached No. 4 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart. As “La Isla Bonita” was co-written by Madonna, she also gets songwriting credit on “Mamacita.” In turn, “Mamacita” gives Madonna her first top 10 as a songwriter on Hot Latin Songs.
“Mamacita” rises on the strength of airplay and streaming activity: it logged 8 million in audience impressions (up 20%), earned in the week ending May 31, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. It also pushes 10-5 on the Latin Airplay chart.
Meanwhile, “Mamacita” drew 2.4 million in U.S. streams in the week ending May 28.
While the Black Eye Peas secure their second top 10 on the tally, Ozuna ups his career count to his 22 while J.Rey Soul secures her first. She joins a group of two other acts who have scored a top 10 with their first chart entry in 2020: Tyga (“Loco Contigo,” with DJ Snake and J Balvin), Frank Ocean (“Cayendo [Side A Acoustic]”.)
In addition to its Hot Latin Songs’ hike, “Mamacita” also rises 10-7 on the Latin Digital Song Sales chart thanks to an 11% boost in digital sales.
