Shakira and Maluma Shoot Straight to No. 1 on Billboard Chart With ‘Chantaje’
The song, which has garnered over 26 million streams on YouTube alone as of today (Nov. 8), debuts at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Latin Songs chart (dated Nov. 19), according to the chart organization, becoming only the 14th song to do so in the chart's 30-year history.
It's also Shakira's eleventh No. 1 on the chart — and Maluma's first.
And that's not all, as far as chart accomplishments go: the track also arrived at No. 96 on the Billboard Hot 100, marking Maluma's very first time on the chart. (It's Shakira's 19th arrival to the Hot 100 overall.) The Maluma global takeover is coming.
There's still a "Chantaje" music video on the way, reportedly due out later this month. In the meantime, Shaki's been teasing glimpses of the recording process behind-the-scenes on her Instagram.
Watch the two work their magic below.
