Los Dos Carnales earn their first top 10 on the Regional Mexican Airplay chart (dated July 11) as “El Envidioso” surges 18-10. It’s the Mexican duo’s first top 10 on any Billboard airplay chart.
The act — made up of brothers Poncho Quezada Jr. and Imanol Quezada from San Pedro de las Colinas, Coahuila — launched their career singing in buses, markets and bars before becoming an underground success. They also found notoriety as openers for famed Mexican band La Trakalosa de Moterrey in 2016.
“Our first immediate surprise this week was to find out that ‘El Envidioso’ is one of the few most listened to songs on radio,” Quesada tells Billboard. “To know that the song is now part of the top 10 songs on Bilboard’s Regional Mexican Airplay chart, is a great accomplishment for us because we know the importance and relevance this has on an international level. We never thought we would get that far.”
“El Envidioso” soars up the chart thanks to a robust 74 percent in audience impressions (to 4 million) earned in the week ending July 5, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. The lift assists a 22-slot hike on the overall Latin Airplay chart, climbing 44-22 in just its third week.
The song was written by Quesada Jr., lead vocalist and bassist, and released via Afinarte Music April 10.
The group claimed its first Billbaord entry when “Vida Ventajosa” bowed at No. 9 on the Latin Digital Song Sales chart (dated April 25). The song remains at No. 49 for a second week on the Hot Latin Songs chart, which blends airplay, digital sales and streaming data.
The eight-track all-trap set opens with a little over 3,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending July 2, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, with the bulk of the opening sum stemming from streaming activity.
The Latin Rhythm Albums chart ranks the most popular Latin rhythm albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).
Trap Tumbado registered 3,000 SEA units, which equates to 4.3 million on-demand streams for the album’s songs in its opening week.
The album, mostly sung in Spanish, was released June 26 via Rancho Humilde. It features collaborations with artists Tyan G, Lil Tecca and JhonnyX, among others.
Cano earned commercial success with “Soy El Diablo,” with Bad Bunny. The song debuted and peaked at No. 16 on the Hot Latin Songs chart dated Nov. 9, 2019.
