There’s a new male/female pairing atop Billboard’s Tropical Airplay chart, and both artists score their first No. 1 in almost five years.

Victor Manuelle and La India crown the list as “Víctimas Las Dos” rises 3-1 on the May 29-dated survey. It’s the first duet between a female and male soloist at No. 1 since March 2020, when Natti Natasha and Romeo Santos’ “La Mejor Versíon de Mi” had its final week atop the list.

“Víctimas Las Dos” lands atop the tally boosted by a 35% increase in audience impressions, to 4.8 million, earned in the week ending May 23, according to MRC Data. It ascends to No. 1 after spending 15 weeks in the chart’s top 10 (the song debuted at No. 15 on chart dated Feb. 27 and rose to No. 6 in its second week).

The song is the first collaborative effort by the Puerto Ricans. “’Víctimas’ was inspired by all those manipulative and lying men women come across daily and I thought La India was the perfect interpreter to give drama to the story. We are aware it’s a common issue,” Victor Manuelle tells Billboard.
