“Lo Que Nuca Será,” which was composed by Alex García, Dani Pérez and Ramón Brito, ascends assisted by a 12% gain in audience impressions, to 7 million, earned in the week ending Oct. 11, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
“We’re extremely thankful with this new career achievement, especially as we celebrate our 30-year anniversary,” Memo Garza, lead vocalist, told Billboard. “This No. 1 is a great satisfaction as none of this would be possible without our listeners.” The band was formed in Sinaloa, Mexico, in 1990.
Notably, out of La Adictiva’s 10 leaders on Regional Mexican Airplay, “Lo Que Nunca Será” becomes the group’s seventh consecutive No. 1. Its maiden ruler arrived in May 2011: “Te Amo y Te Amo” landed atop the tally in its 16th week and led for nine nonconsecutive weeks, La Adictiva’s longest charting title at No. 1.
“To begin with, this is a song that had been recorded four years ago,” Andrés Valdes, musical producer, adds. “One of the composers is a former member of the band. There is always a competition between several recorded songs to determine which single will be promoted, and surprisingly enough this song had not passed the filter.”
With a collection of 10 No. 1s, La Adictiva breaks out of a tie with Christian Nodal for the 10th-most leaders on the list. Among all acts, La Adictiva rises to ninth (tying with Gerardo Ortiz). Here’s a look at the current standing:
16, Calibre 50
16, Conjunto Primavera
15, Los Tigres del Norte
14, Banda El Recodo de Cruz Lizarraga
14, La Arrolladora Banda el Limon de Rene Camacho
13, Banda MS de Sergio Lizarraga
10, Gerardo Ortiz
10, La Adictiva Banda San Jose de Mesillas
9, Christian Nodal
While “Lo Que Nunca” breaks new ground on Regional Mexican Airplay, it also sees progress on the overall Latin Airplay chart, entering the top 10 for the first time (11-10), and posting a 10th top 10 for the group.
