Daddy Yankee’s “Con Calma,” featuring Snow, debuts at No. 6 on the Hot Latin Songs chart (dated Feb. 9), granting Yankee his 26th top 10 and Snow his first. The track is a reworking of Snow’s former No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart, which spent seven weeks atop the list in 1993.

The tune starts in the top tier after its first full tracking week of activity, mainly on the strength of streaming (6 million U.S. streams in the week ending Jan. 31, according to Nielsen Music) and digital sales (10,000 sold). The track was released on Jan. 24 (the final day of the chart’s previous tracking week).

“The effect of the music and what #ConCalma has triggered has transcended existing limits,” Daddy Yankee tells Billboard. “The vibe of ‘Con Calma’ is special and I am more than grateful with the support worldwide.”

“It’s great to be back on the charts,” Snow tells Billboard. “A big thank you to Daddy Yankee for embracing me and taking my song ‘Informer’ -with Play-N-Skillz Recording- and turning it into this new version for a new generation all over the world. Respect always.”

Yankee now ties Marc Anthony for the seventh-most top 10s on the Hot Latin Songs chart, which blends streaming, airplay, digital sales data.

Meanwhile, over on the Latin Airplay chart, Yankee logs his 26th top 10, as “Adictiva,” with Anuel AA, glides 16-8 thanks to a 14 percent boost in audience impressions (to 9.8 million) in the week ending Feb 3.

For Anuel, the move earns him a second top 10, following “Ella Quiere Beber,” with Romeo Santos, which crowned the tally for one week (Jan. 2). The latter slips 1-2 on the current chart (12.7 million in audience, down 17 percent).

La Adictiva Clocks 10th Top 10: Elsewhere on the Latin charts, La Adictiva Banda San Jose de Mesillas claim their 10th Regional Mexican Airplay top 10 as “Con Todo Incluido” jumps 12-8 on the current ranking.

The track ascends with 5 million in audience impressions (up 12 percent).

The Sinaloans scored their first top 10 in 2011 when “Te Amo y Te Amo” peaked at No. 1 (May 28) where it remained for nine weeks; their longest reign on the chart. Since then La Adictiva tallied five No. 1s, two of which crowned the chart in 2018: “Esta Es Tu Canción (No. 1, Jan. 31) and “En Peligro de Extinción” (Aug. 25).
