"Hasta el Amanecer" was released on January 15, 2016 on U.S. radios.[3] Billboard called the song a "sultry, sexy reggaetón track" that contains the singer's "trademark catchy melodic hooks. Still a hopeless romantic, here Jam pines after a girl he met at the laundromat, and let go, without even finding out her name."[3]

Music videoEdit

The music video was viewed over 53 million times on YouTube after three weeks, for which Billboard's Suzette Fernandez predicted that Jam will have a prosperous award season in 2017.[4]

As of November 2019, the song's music video has over 1.4 billion views on YouTube, taking it into the top 100 most viewed YouTube videos.[5][6]

Chart performanceEdit

"Hasta el Amanecer" peaked at number one on the Hot Latin Songs chart on the issue dated March 9, 2016.[7] The song displaced Colombian reggaeton singer J Balvin's 22-week record "Ginza" from the top of the chart.[7] "Hasta el Amanecer" became the second song by Jam to peak at number one following "El Perdón" with Spanish pop singer Enrique Iglesias in 2015.[7] The song also took Digital Gainer on the Hot Latin Songs chart for selling 3,000 digital downloads as well as a 7% spike in streams across U.S. radios with 1.7 million audience impressions.[7] With this, the song also peaked at number one on the Latin Airplay chart, his third single topper.[7]
