El Fantasma captures his fourth No. 1 on Billboard’s Regional Mexican Airplay chart as “El Soldado Caído” takes over atop the Oct. 1-dated list.

“El Soldado” jumps 3-1 and sends Los Rieleros del Norte’s “Cuéntame” to No. 2 after one week atop the list. The former earns the Greatest Gainer honors of the week thanks to its 32% increase in audience impressions, to 6.5 million, in the U.S. in the week ending Sept. 25, according to Luminate.

El Fantasma’s new No. 1, released July 1st via Afinarte, arrives a year after the Mexican scored his third leader through a collaboration with Pepe Aguilar: “Tus Desprecios” ruled for one week in Sept. 2021.

Plus, with “El Soldado’s” coronation on Regional Mexican Airplay, Afinarte adds a new No. 1 to its scoreboard on the 27-year-old list. It’s the label’s first champ in almost a year since it took over atop with Los Dos Carnales’ “Yo Soy Rico” for one week in Nov. 2021.

Here’s a recap of Afinarte’s champs on Regional Mexican Airplay:

Dec. 27, 2014, “Levantando Polvadera,” Voz De Mando, (7 weeks At No.1)
June 1, 2019, “Encantadora,” El Fantasma, (4 weeks At No.1)
Sept. 5, 2020, “El Envidioso,” Los Dos Carnales
Aug. 14, 2021, “Soy Buen Amigo,” El Fantasma,
