Wisin Earns First Solo No. 1 on Top Latin Albums Chart With 'Vaqueros'
Plus: Farruko moves up Hot Latin Songs, while Alejandro Sanz & Alejandro Fernandez debut.
Wisin scores his first solo No. 1 on the Top Latin Albums chart (dated Sept. 26) with Los Vaqueros: La Trilogia (selling 2,000 copies in the week ending Sept. 10, according to Nielsen Music). It's the urban star's sixth overall No. 1, including the five he achieved as one-half of Wisin & Yandel. Vaqueros simultaneously opens at No. 15 on Rap Albums.
Farruko Floats Into Top 10: Hopping into the Hot Latin Songs top 10, Farruko’s “Sunset” featuring Shaggy and Nicky Jam rises 12-9 in its seventh charting week. The track takes the Airplay Gainer tag, rising 22 percent to 11.7 million audience impressions (concurrently stepping 4-3 on Latin Rhythm Airplay).
A music video for the song was released on Sept. 11, which could cause an additional bump on the Oct. 3-dated charts.
Alejandros’ Arrival: Returning to Hot Latin Songs at No. 48, two superstars team up as Alejandro Sanz and Alejandro Fernandez debut with “A Que No Me Dejas.” The track, which is credited as Sanz featuring Fernandez, is the 26th entry for Sanz and the 42nd for Fernandez.
The arrival marks Sanz’s second charting track of 2015 (following the No. 19-peaking “Un Zombie a La Intemperie”) and the first appearance for Fernandez in two years (when “Hoy Tengo Ganas de Ti,” featuring Christina Aguilera reached No. 5 in 2013). A 10 percent increase at radio bumps the song onto the list, recording 3 million audience impressions during the tracking week ending Sept. 13.
