At No. 33, it’s the highest debut ever on the Billboard Hot 100 for an all-Spanish-language song by an act with no accompanying artists.
Bad Bunny’s “Vete” (which translates to “Leave”) takes the Digital and Streaming honors on the current Hot Latin Songs chart (dated Dec. 7) as the song blasts from No. 33 to No. 1 after its first full tracking week.
The track is Bad Bunny’s fourth No. 1 on the Hot Latin Songs chart, and he replaces himself atop the list. He bumps his own collaboration with J Balvin, “La Cancion,” down to No. 2 after one week at No. 1.
Bad Bunny’s standalone single, which was released Nov. 22, rockets up the chart mainly on the strength of streaming activity. “Vete” registered 18.4 million U.S. streams (up 741%) in the week ending Nov. 28, according to Nielsen Music, which grants the Puerto Rican a No. 18 debut on the overall Streaming Songs chart and a No. 1 start on the Latin Streaming Songs chart.
Highest Hot 100 Debut for a Spanish-language Song by an Act With No Accompanying Artists: In addition to its Hot Latin Songs coronation, “Vete” arrives at No. 33 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart. Bad Bunny celebrates a new milestone as “Vete” becomes the highest debut ever for a Spanish-language song without the assistance of any artist since the tally’s inception in 1958. For example, Bad Bunny’s own all-Spanish track “MIA,” featuring Drake, is performed completely in Spanish, but its debut was certainly boosted by Drake’s featured role on the track (it bowed at No. 5 on the Hot 100.)
Highest Hot 100 Latin Debut In Over a Year: “Vete” also becomes the highest Latin song to debut on Hot 100 in over a year. Who earned it before? Well, Bad Bunny takes the honors again as “MIA,” featuring Drake, opened at No. 5 on the Oct. 27, 2018-dated tally. Since then, 18 Latin songs have debuted on the tally and all below the top 50 rank. Out of those, only four titles where by Latin acts unaccompanied by any other artist: Ozuna’s “Amor Genuino” (No. 92, June 22), Maluma’s “HP” (No. 96, June 8), Aventura’s “Inmortal” (No. 95, April 20) and Bad Bunny’s “Solo De Mi” (No. 93, Jan. 12.)
“Vete” also makes improvement on other Latin charts: It jumps 7-1 on the Latin Digital Song Sales chart.
Further, “Vete”’s digital song downloads numbered 4,000 in its first full tracking week, granting it a No. 38 debut on the overall Digital Song Sales chart.
In addition to “Vete” Bad Bunny continues his top 10 presence on Hot Latin Songs with three other songs: “La Canción” with J Balvin at No. 2, “Callaita” with Tainy at No. 7 and “No Me Conoce” with Jhay Cortez and J Balvin at No. 9.
