Shakira & Ozuna’s ‘Monotonía’ Arrives in the Top 10 on Tropical Airplay Chart

Shakira returns to Billboard’s Tropical Airplay chart as her latest single “Monotonía,” with Ozuna, breaks into the top 10 on the Oct. 29-dated list. It’s her first appearance on this chart since 2017.

“Monotonía” was released via Sony Music Latin on Oct. 19 and bows at No. 8 on Tropical Airplay with five days of airplay. It starts with 2.8 million in audience impressions earned during the tracking week Oct. 17-23, according to Luminate.

“Monotonía” marks Shakira’s first chart appearance and top 10 effort since “Déjà Vu” with Prince Royce closed its 42-week frame in the top 10 on December 2017. Out of those, the track took over atop the tally for 11 consecutive weeks (April-July 2017). Ozuna, meanwhile, reached a No. 3 high earlier in the year with “Señor Juez,” with Anthony Santos (Feb. 19-dated ranking).

Back to Shakira, she continues to hold the third-most top 10s among female acts on Tropical Airplay, trailing Olga Tañon’s 28 top 10s and India’s 25. Here’s a recap of the women with the most top 10s since the list launched in 1994:

28, Olga Tañón
25, India
20, Shakira
16, Giselle
16, Gloria Estefan
11, Paulina Rubio
11, Thalia

Elsewhere, “Monotonía” arrives at No. 25 on the Hot Latin Songs chart. For its first week on the multimetric ranking, the song registered 3.1 million official U.S. streams in the week ending Oct. 20. Sales, too, push the song to a top 30 start. Despite its only one day of activity, the song sold 2,000 downloads, yielding a No. 1 debut on Latin Digital Song Sales.

Further, “Monotonía” launches at No. 36 on the all-genre Latin Airplay chart. With a total of 63 entries on his career chart history, Ozuna extends his second-most appearances rank just behind Daddy Yankee’s 80 entries.
