The Panamanian also lands his first No. 1 on Latin Streaming Songs and Latin Digital Song Sales.

Panamanian singer Sech celebrates his first No. 1 on the Hot Latin Songs chart (dated Aug. 10), as “Otro Trago” (which translates to “another drink”), featuring Darell, pushes 5-1 in its 14th frame. The tune gets a big boost thanks in part to a new remix of the cut, which dropped on July 25, that features -- in addition to Darell -- Nicky Jam, Ozuna and Anuel AA.

“I’m extremely happy for the support,” Sech tells Billboard of his first No. 1. “I’m grateful to God, to Rich Music. There hasn’t been a Panamanian top a chart in a while, and I’m extremely proud and happy.”

The last Panamanian to top the Hot Latin Songs chart was El Chombo who scored his first No. 1 when “Dame Tu Cosita,” the remix alongside Pitbull and Karol G, featuring Cutty Ranks, landed atop the list over a year ago (May 12, 2018).

“Otro Trago,” which was written by Sech, Darell, Dímelo Flow and Joshua Méndez and produced by Dímelo Flow, also climbs 5-1 on Latin Streaming Songs, and debuts on the all-genre Streaming Songs chart at No. 22 with 15.9 million streams in the week ending Aug. 1 (up 70%), according to Nielsen Music.

The song also sold 6,000 downloads (up 431%), pushing it 7-1 on Latin Digital Song Sales and enabling its debut at No. 30 on the overall Digital Song Sales list.

Radio play, meanwhile, advances with a 9-3 leap on Latin Airplay thanks to a 30% surge in audience impressions (to 12 million) earned in the week ending Aug. 4.

As for Darell, he nabs his second No. 1 on Hot Latin Songs -which blends streaming data, digital sales and airplay. The Puerto Rican claimed his first leader in May 2018 when former No. 1 “Te Boté” (with Casper Mágico, Nio García, Nicky Jam, Ozuna and Bad Bunny) arrived at the summit where it remained for 14 nonconsecutive weeks.
