WATCH: Becky G Gets Emotional Over Her First Solo No. 1 Song
Over the last year, Becky G has fixed her position as one of the leading ladies in Latine pop, basking in numerous record-breaking Billboard charts. Today (Sep. 7) is no different, as the Mexican-American singer announces she has officially achieved her first solo No. 1 on the Latin Airplay Chart with “Bailé Con Mi Ex.”
Earlier this morning, the “RAM PAM PAM” singer got emotional on Twitter, declaring her breaking news on uncovering “Bailé Con Mi Ex” took the top spot. At that exact moment, tears filled her eyes. “You guys, ‘Bailé Con Mi Ex’ exists at numero uno at Latin Airplay,” she said as she took a minute to breathe, clearly taken aback by the exciting report.
Becky G follows her ranking with the reigning three-week No.1 slot with Karol G on “MAMIII,” already masing over 400 million streams worldwide, establishing she’s been creating hits after hits and zero misses. Her sophomore record, Esquemas, released in May of this year, also marked the pop star’s first entry at No. 1 on the Latin Pop Albums chart, where it remained for a staggering eight weeks.
But of course, “Bailé Con Mi Ex” also became the third No.1 by a female soloist in 2022, right after her “MAMIII” partner in crime, Karol G. On top of Becky’s success, “Bailé Con Mi Ex” became the seventh solo song by a woman to lead Latin Airplay this decade, starting in 2020. No need to point out she’s a force to be reckoned with, right?
With Becky G’s recent appearance at the MTV VMA’s for her nomination in the Best Latin category, she’s on a road of success, which isn’t stopping soon. So as we tag along for the ride, we can’t wait to see where the reign of Becky G takes us!
