Maluma’s meteoric rise on social media and radio, and his hot- ticket concerts, have reverberated powerfully on the Billboard Latin charts. The seductive 23-year-old Colombian urban pop singer was the youngest artist to simultaneously hold both the No. 1 and 2 spots on Billboard‘s Latin Airplay chart (with “Sin Contrato” and “Chantaje”), among his many chart honors. His current single “Felices los 4” took the honor of bumping “Despacito” from the No. 1 spot on the Latin Rhythm Airplay chart earlier this summer; that song currently sits atop the Latin Pop Airplay chart.
Since the release of his 2015 sophomore album, Dirty Boy, Pretty Boy, which followed a string of notable singles and collaborations, musica de Maluma has become a constant presence on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart.
