Romeo Santos

Romeo Santos scores the best sales week for any Latin title in eight years as his "Formula, Vol. 2" debuts at No. 1 on Top Latin Albums with 85,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It's the strongest sales frame for a Spanish-language set since 2006 when Mexican pop group RBD opened with 117,000 sales of Celestial.

On the Billboard 200, "Formula" lands at No. 5, which is the highest rank for a Latin album since Marc Anthony arrived at the same position with 3.0 in August 2013. 

Romeo continues dominating the Hot Latin Songs chart with three songs in the top 10. "Odio" featuring Drake holds the No. 1 for the fifth straight week, followed by "Propuesta Indecente" at No. 3, and he lands at No. 9 as a featured act on Enrique Iglesias' "Loco."

Elsewhere on the charts, Wisin scores his second No. 1 on Latin Rhythm Airplay as a lead artist as "Adrenalina," featuring Jennifer Lopez & Ricky Martin, debuts atop the chart. The track, which also starts at No. 12 on Hot Latin Songs, is the third to open at No. 1 on Latin Rhythm in the 19-year history of the chart, and second involving Wisin. "Sexy Movimiento," by Wisin & Yandel, was the last track to start atop the chart in November 2007, where it ultimately spent 14 weeks, the duo's longest No. 1 run.  

Colombian star Juanes leaps 11-1 on Latin Airplay with latest single "La Luz" to secure his ninth No. 1 on the chart.  The uptempo track surged to 12.1 million audience impressions at radio, a 64% growth, according to Nielsen BDS.  It climbs 16-11 on Hot Latin Songs.  The song is the first single from his upcoming set Loco De Amor, out March 9.
