In Time For Cinco De Mayo, Christian Nodal And Gera MX Enter Billboard’s Global Chart Top 10

Two Mexican acts have the biggest Latin song in the world right now. Christian Nodal and Gera MX’s genre-bending “Botella Tras Botella” debuted in the top 10 of Billboard‘s Global 200 chart this week. There’s no doubt that this collaboration will be on heavy rotation this Cinco de Mayo.

Christian Nodal and Gera MX mixed regional Mexican music with hip-hop.

Nodal from Sonora and San Luis Potosí native Gera MX released “Botella Tras Botella” on April 22. The song blended Nodal’s signature mariacheño sound (a mix of mariachi and Norteño) with Gera MX’s hip-hop edge. The guys commiserate over heartbreak by kicking back a few chelas. In the music video, Nodal and Gera MX are hanging out together. The black-and-white visual has over 82 million views on YouTube.

“Botella Tras Botella” also cracked the U.S. Hot 100 chart.

Like a Mexican “Dákiti,” “Botella Tras Botella” entered the top 10 of Global 200 chart this week. The chart pulls streaming data from 200 countries and territories, including the U.S. Nodal and Gera MX’s collaboration enters the chart at No. 9. It’s the only Latin song in the top 10. “Botella Tras Botella” also impressively cracked the all-genre U.S. Hot 100 chart at No. 60. This song marks Nodal and Gera MX’s first entry on the Hot 100 chart.

Christian Nodal is keeping regional Mexican music fresh.

With reggaeton and Latin trap’s grip on the globe, “Botella Tras Botella” is an example of the power of regional Mexican music has through Gen-Z acts like Nodal. And for this to happen just days before Cinco de Mayo is amazing. The Mexican holiday will definitely keep the song streams coming in.

Nodal’s last album AYAYAY! was released in May 2020. He’s currently in a relationship with Latin pop princess Belinda.
