Justin Timberlake Tops Billboard Latin Airplay Chart for the First Time With Romeo Santos’ ‘Sin Fin’

A bilingual team-up has just earned Justin Timberlake his first No. 1 on any Billboard Latin chart. That team-up is with Romeo Santos on the singers' first collaborative effort, "Sin Fin".

The bilingual “Sin Fin,” from Santos’ newly released Fórmula, Vol. 3 LP, also debuted at No. 1 on the Tropical Albums chart and at No. 2 on the Top Latin Albums chart. "Sin Fin" sees Timberlake singing in both English and Spanish. The collab was teased through a 15-second preview on Aug. 29 via both artists’ Twitter accounts. While an association hadn’t emerged in the past, Santos, a longtime Timberlake fan, rewrote and translated into Spanish NSYNC’s “Gone” for Aventura’s debut album We Broke the Rules in 2002.

The bachata song “Sin Fin” bows atop the all-genre Latin Airplay chart with 10.1 million in audience impressions earned in the U.S. in the week ending September 11, according to Billboard. The track dethrones Becky G’s “Bailé Con Mi Ex” and sends it to No. 11 after its one-week reign.

“Sin Fin” gifts Santos his 21st No. 1 on Latin Airplay. Plus, he extends his record for the most No. 1s among tropical artists. In addition to his new win, Santos ties with Maluma for the seventh-most among all acts.

Meanwhile, Timberlake banks his first No. 1 on any Billboard Latin chart since his first appearance on a Latin ranking in 2006 (the No. 27-peaking “SexyBack” on Latin Rhythm Airplay). Furthermore, Timberlake adds a new chapter to his Billboard chart career, now scoring a champ across 10 different Billboard rankings: Adult Contemporary, Adult Pop Airplay, Adult R&B Airplay, Dance/Mix Show Airplay, Latin Airplay, Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay, Pop Airplay, Rap Airplay, Rhythmic Airplay and Tropical Airplay.
