Congolese-French rapper and singer-songwriter Gims earns his first top 10 through a first entry on any Billboard Latin chart as “Arhbo (Music From The FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022),” with Ozuna, jumps 29-8 on the Latin Airplay chart (dated Dec. 10). The track is also Gims’ first chart entry overall.

Arhbo is a Qatari slang word for “welcome” which derives from the Arabic word “marhaba;” basically the simplest type of greeting. The song, produced by RedOne, is the second single from the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 official soundtrack. The World Cup began on Nov. 20 and runs through Dec. 18.


“Arhbo” was released Aug. 19 via 2101 Records/ Katara Studios/UnitedMasters. Thanks to its 29-8 surge –in its fourth week– on Latin Airplay, it takes the Greatest Gainer of the week with a lofty 72% gain in audience impressions, to 6.4 million, earned in the U.S. in the week ending Dec. 4, according to Luminate.

The singles also marks the first top 10 and chart entry on Latin Airplay for Middle Eastern Katara Studios and United Masters. Meanwhile, producer RedOne’s 2101 Records previously an imprint under Republic Records, scored a No. 22 high through Jennifer Lopez’s “Live It Up,” featuring Pitbull, in 2013.

Ozuna collects his 36th top 10, still the fourth-most among all acts since the chart launched in 1994. Here’s the scoreboard:

46, Daddy Yankee
41, Enrique Iglesias
40, J Balvin
36, Ozuna
34, Shakira
30, Marc Anthony
28, Ricky Martin,
27, Marco Antonio Solis
27, Wisin
27, Wisin & Yandel

Further, Ozuna’s new top 10 arrives after he secured his second week atop Latin Airplay with “Monotonía,” with Shakira, in the week prior.
