Shakira & Ozuna’s ‘Monotonía’ Rises to No. 1 on Latin Airplay & Tropical Airplay Charts

Shakira and Ozuna’s bachata collab “Monotonía” simultaneously tops two Billboard airplay charts, as the single jumps to No. 1 on both the Latin Airplay and the Tropical Airplay charts (dated Dec. 3). On the former, the song sends Bizarrap and Quevedo’s “Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 52” to No. 3 after its four-week reign.

“Monotonía” rises to No. 1 with a 6% gain in audience impressions, to 8.2 million, earned in the U.S. in the week ending Nov. 27, according to Luminate. On Tropical Airplay, it ascends from the runner-up slot and sends Manuel Turizo’s “La Bachata” to No. 2 following its nine-week lead, the second-most in 2022, after the 10-week domination of Romeo Santo’s “Sus Huellas.”


“Monotonía,” along with its music video, was released Oct. 19 via Sony Music Latin. It earns Shakira her 17th champ on the all-genre Latin Airplay, while Ozuna collects his 30th leader. Let’s look at the scoreboard:

  • 35, J Balvin
  • 32, Enrique Iglesias
  • 30, Ozuna
  • 27, Daddy Yankee
  • 22, Maluma
  • 22, Wisin
  • 20, Romeo Santos
  • 19, Bad Bunny
  • 18, Ricky Martin
  • 17, Shakira

Notably, on Tropical Airplay, “Monotonía” becomes the second collab by two non-core tropical acts to top the chart in 2022. Previously, Rosalía and The Weekend ruled for two weeks with “La Fama” in May. Plus, out of the 12 tracks that hit No. 1 on the tally in 2022, Nio García, Maria Becerra, Camilo, Wisin and Justin Timberlake — also not core-tropical acts — have all dominated at least for one week through a collaboration with tropical artists. Further, both Camilo and Manuel Turizo have also hit No. 1 as soloists.

Here are all the No. 1s on Tropical Airplay in 2022 so far:

  • “Se Menea,” Don Omar & Nio Garcia
  • “Sus Huellas,” Romeo Santos
  • “Mala,” Marc Anthony
  • “La Fama,” Rosalia Featuring The Weeknd
  • “Te Espero,” Prince Royce & Maria Becerra
  • “Baloncito Viejo,” Carlos Vives & Camilo
  • “Soy Yo,” Don Omar, Wisin & Gente de Zona
  • “La Bachata,” Manuel Turizo
  • “Pegao,” Camilo
  • “Sin Fin,” Romeo Santos & Justin Timberlake
  • “Despecha,” Rosalia
  • “Monotonia,” Shakira + Ozuna

Elsewhere, “Monotonía” holds at No. 8 on the multi-metric Hot Latin Songs chart for a second week after its No. 3 high (Nov. 5-dated ranking).
