Since notching his first chart-topper on the March 12, 2011 chart with “Corazon Sin Cara” (two weeks at No. 1), only one other act has more crowning hits: Romeo Santos, with 11 in that time span. Elsewhere, “Carretera” reaches a new peak on Hot Latin Songs jumping 14-8 in its 16th frame.

The track previews Royce’s forthcoming Spanish-language album, due later this year. It will be his first Spanish album since Soy El Mismo was released in 2013 and will follow his debut English-language effort, Double Vision (2015).
