C. Tangana & Khea Widen the Latin Landscape With Debuts on Billboard Global Charts


Tangana, De Elche, and La Hungara all hail from Spain, mixing their reggaeton and traditional flamenco influences on “Dejaste.”

The only other Spanish artist who has appeared on the global charts throughout their 10-week history so far is Rosalía, who has charted as a featured artist (with Farruko) on “Relacion” with Sech, Daddy Yankee, and J Balvin and as a co-lead on “TKN” with Travis Scott. As “TKN” peaked at Nos. 89 and 126 on the Global Excl. U.S. and Global 200, respectively, “Dejaste” is, upon its arrival, now the highest-charting song by a Spanish lead act (Tangana) on both global lists.

Another collaborative Spanish-language song debuts this week, as Khea (from Argentina), Natti Natasha (Dominican Republic), Prince Royce, and featured act Lenny Santos (both from the U.S.) joined forces on “Ayer Me Llamo Mi Ex,” which begins at No. 50 on the Global Excl. U.S. chart and No. 77 on the Global 200.

Notably, the song starts 12 positions lower on the Global Excl. U.S. tally than Tangana’s “Dejaste” but six spots higher on the Global 200. While Tangana’s “Dejaste” scored 99% of its streams and 90% of its sales from outside the U.S., the international activity for “Ayer Me Llamo Mi Ex” is on par for streams (94%) but at just 38% for sales, helping explain the songs’ respective ranks at, again, Nos. 38 and 50 on the Global Excl. U.S. chart and, flipping top honors, Nos. 83 and 77 on the Global 200.
