Daddy Yankee Replaces Himself at No. 1 on Latin Airplay Chart With ‘Dura’
Daddy Yankee collects his ninth No. 1 on the Latin Airplay chart, as “Dura” bumps 4-1 on the March 17-dated list. The song collected 16.4 million in audience impressions (up 15 percent) in the week ending March 11, according to Nielsen Music.

Daddy Yankee replaces himself at No. 1 on Latin Airplay, as his featured turn on Wisin’s “Todo Comienza En La Disco” (also featuring Yandel) crowned the list a week earlier (March 10). On the new chart, is descends 1-5.
The last time an act replaced itself at No. 1 on Latin Airplay was on Nov. 5, 2016, when J Balvin replaced himself atop the list. That week, Balvin’s “Safari,” featuring Pharrell Williams and Bia & Sky ceded the summit to Zion & Lennox’s “Otra Vez,” featuring Balvin. The latter jumped 4-1, earning Balvin his sixth leader. He’s since added a seventh No. 1 with “Mi Gente,” alongside Willy William, featuring Beyoncé.
