Dominican bachatero Romeo Santos climbed to the top of Billboard’s Latin Songs chart this week with “Promise,” his collaboration with R&B titan Usher.

Falling one spot were Mexican rockers Mana, whose “El verdadero amor perdona,” featuring Prince Royce, stands at No. 2.

Reggaeton star Daddy Yankee climbed from sixth to third place with “Lovumba” (Prestige), followed at No. 4 by “Te quiero a morir” from Banda El Recodo de Cruz Lizarraga. Pesado’s “El mil amores” slipped down to the fifth spot on the Latin Songs chart, where the rankings are based on radio airplay.

“Formula: Vol. 1,” the first solo disc by Aventura’s Romeo Santos, remained in the No. 1 position on Billboard’s list of best-selling Latin Albums for a third consecutive week.

Debuting in second place was a live album from Shakira, “En vivo desde Paris,” which pushed Jenni Rivera’s “Joyas Prestadas: Banda” into third.

Another new release, “Intentalo” by 3BallMTY, took the fourth spot, while Vicente Fernandez kept his grip on No. 5 with “Otra vez.”
