Victor Manuelle extends his record for the most top 10s among all acts on Billboard’s Tropical Airplay chart thanks to his latest single “Esta Noche Te Conviene,” which rises 16-10 on the Feb. 18-dated ranking.
The single enters the upper region in its third week with an 86% gain in audience impressions, to 2.32 million, earned in the U.S. during the Feb. 3-9 tracking week, according to Luminate. The song was composed by Luis Castillo, Omar Alfanno and Santiago Castillo.
“Esta Noche” is the third top 10-charting single from Manuelle’s 20th studio album Lado a Lado — which peaked at No. 13 on Tropical Albums last May — to reach the top 10 on Tropical Airplay. It follows the chart-leading “Víctimas Las Dos,” with La India (May 2021) and “Decidí Tener Pantalones,” which peaked at No. 5 last October. The former gave India her 11th champ on Tropical Airplay, the most among women since the tally launched in 1994.
Lado a Lado has collected one further top 20-charting hit in “Vamo’ a Ver Si El Gas Pela,” with Miky Woodz and Marvin Santiago, peaking at No. 13 last June.
With the new top 10, Victor Manuelle improves his career total count to 64 top 10s. The Puerto Rican stands way ahead of his nearest competitor, Marc Anthony, and his 54 top 10s. Let’s look at the scoreboard:
64, Victor Manuelle
54, Marc Anthony

Manuelle secured his first top 10 with the No. 3-peaking “Apiádate de Mi” in 1994, his first visit to the chart (the same year the list launched).
