Iván Cornejo’s ‘Baby Please’ Makes Top 10 Debut on Hot Latin Songs

After “Está Dañada” earned Ivan Cornejo his first top 10 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs in 2021, the Mexican-American singer-songwriter is back in the upper region as “Baby Please” debuts at No. 8 on the list dated March 30.

“Baby Please” splashes into the top 10 on the multimetric Hot Latin Songs chart mainly on the strength of streaming activity. (The chart blends streams, airplay, and sales.) In the tracking week of March 15-21, the song registered 5.4 million official U.S. streams, according to Luminate. Thanks to that sum, the track bows at No. 5 on Latin Streaming Songs and gives Cornejo his third top 10 there.

It’s not odd for 19-year-old Cornejo to make a new chart visit largely from streaming activity. Out of his 14 chart entries on Hot Latin Songs, streams provide essentially most of his songs’ activity there. Only the No. 2-peaking “Dañada” (2021) and “Inseparables” (a top 20 hit in 2022) generated minimal digital download sales, while radio has not jumped on board yet.

As “Baby Please” lands in the top 10 on Hot Latin Songs, Cornejo claims his second top 10, after “Dañada,” his first chart appearance, debuted at No. 7 in October 2021 and peaked at No. 2 a week later (chart dated Oct. 30, 2021). In between, the sad sierreño singer placed 12 other songs, with “Aquí Te Espero” nearly missing the top 10, as it debuted and peaked at No. 11 in Aug. 2023.

Plus, with the new song’s high debut, indie label Zaragoza picks up its first top 10 on Hot Latin Songs. Cornejo took the imprint to a No. 30 high through “Donde Estás” last December.

Elsewhere, “Baby Please” grants Cornejo his third chart visit on the overall Billboard Hot 100, as the song debuts at No. 95.
