Maná Returns to Latin Airplay Top 10 Thanks to ‘Te Lloré Un Río,’ With Christian Nodal

Maná is back in the top 10 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart for the first time since 2016, as “Te Lloré Un Río,” with Christian Nodal, improves 14-6 on the June 25-dated ranking.

“Te Lloré Un Río” ascends with 7.54 million in audience impressions, up 29%, earned in the U.S. in the week ending June 19, according to Luminate. Maná’s new version of the song returns the group to Latin Airplay’s upper tier for the first time in over five years, when the band took over the throne with “Rayando El Sol,” with Nicky Jam, for one week in Oct. 2016. The group has accumulated a total of 18 top 10s dating back to its first in 1995.

The new version of “Te Lloré Un Río” with Nodal’s vocals tinted with mariachi and banda sinaloense sounds, is the sixth song from Maná’s collaborations project which launched in 2019. The series has seen Mana re-record new versions of its older songs with new guest collaborators Four out of those have reached Latin Airplay: “Rayando El Sol,” with Pablo Alborán (No. 33 high, June 2019), “Eres Mi Religión,” with Joy (No. 33, July 10, 2021), “Mariposa Traicionera,” with Alejandro Fernández (No. 47, Feb. 2022),  and “Te Lloré Un Rio.”

Maná’s original version of “Te Lloré,” was released as part of the Mexican group’s Dónde Jugarán Los Niños?, which was released in 1994 and reached No. 4 on Top Latin Albums (the band’s first entry on the list).  The track pre-dates the Latin Airplay list as it launched Nov. 2, 1994.  It has since generated 51.4 million U.S. streams, according to Luminate.

“Te Lloré,” with Nodal, was released Feb. 25 via Warner Latina. It becomes Nodal’s 14 top 10 and his sixth through a collaboration.

Over on Hot Latin Songs, the regional Mexican-peppered tune also benefits from its airplay push as it debuts atNo. 50. It’s Maná’s first visit to the airplay-, digital sales-, streaming-blended ranking since 2016. The song has generated 8.5 million streams to date.

Beyond its Latin Airplay top 10 ranking, “Te Lloré” scoots 10-3 on Regional Mexican Airplay with 45% gain in plays, to become the largest percentage gain among the chart’s 40 titles.
