Veteran group Los Tigres del Norte claim a milestone chart entry, as the group logs its 23rd top 10 on Top Latin Albums. The bow ties them with Los Temerarios for the most top 10s among all acts in the chart's 21-year history.
Los Tigres del Norte's new effort, Realidades, arrives at No. 3 with 3,000 sold in the week ending Oct. 12, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It's the first studio album in four years for the band, which has earned six Grammy Awards and four Latin Grammy Awards. The group was also recently honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Aug. 21.
Los Tigres del Norte first charted with the No. 6-peaking Los Dos Plebes in 1994.
Vives & Anthony Hit No. 1: Elsewhere on the Latin charts, Carlos Vives jumps 4-1 on Latin Airplay with "Cuando Nos Volvamos a Encontrar" (featuring Marc Anthony). The song is Vives' ninth No. 1; after logging his first four in 2000-04, he's added five (out of his last six entries) since 2012, which coincided with his first season as a coach on The Voice Colombia. Anthony likewise notches his ninth No. 1 on the chart.
Cruz & Balvin Cruise to No. 1: Charlie Cruz climbs 6-1 on Tropical Songs with "Quiero Saber de Ti," marking his third leader. On Latin Rhythm Airplay (see Billboard.biz/charts), J Balvin bumps 2-1 with "Ay Vamos," his second topper. "6 AM" clocked 10 weeks at No. 1 beginning in May. "Vamos" becomes his second Hot Latin Songs top 10 (11-8), following "6 AM" (No. 3).
