Marc Anthony, Los Tigres del Norte Top Latin Chart Debuts
Los Tigres del Norte's "MTV Unplugged," a daring set that brings pop and rock to the regional Mexican stars' traditional norteño music, debuts at No. 3 on Billboard's Top Latin Albums chart this week.
The "Unplugged" set features pairings with Paulina Rubio, Zack de la Rocha, Juanes and others and follows Maná's "Drama y Luz" and Prince Royce's "Prince Royce," both of which remain entrenched at Nos. 1 and 2 on the chart, respectively.

Landing at No. 4 is "14 + 14," an all-hits collection by Aventura, whose members are now preparing solo releases.
On the Latin Digital Songs chart, the big appearance at No. 10 is "Aguanile," the track Marc Anthony recorded as part of the "El Cantante" soundtrack, and which now shows up on the chart thanks to his performance alongside wife Jennifer Lopez in the finale of "American Idol." "Dímelo," another prior hit by Anthony, jumps 44-24 on the chart.
On Hot Latin Songs, Aventura lead singer and writer Anthony "Romeo" Santos remains at No. 1 for the third consecutive week with "You," the first single from his upcoming solo debut due out in the fall on Sony.

Also relatively stable is La Adictiva Banda San José de Mesillas, rising 3-2 with "Te Amo Te Amo," the group's first track to make it to the Hot Latin Songs chart. Previously, the regional Mexican group had had tracks on the Regional Mexican Airplay chart, where "Te Amo Te Amo" is currently No 1.
Otherwise, it's a week of movement on Hot Latin Songs, with Jennifer Lopez's "Ven a Bailar" rising 7-2 and Alexis & Fido's "Contéstame el Teléfono," making a major jump from 14-4. Don Omar's "Taboo," his remake of "Llorando se Fue" (also known as the Lambada), jumps 12-6. That track is at No. 3 on the Latin Digital Songs chart, where another Don Omar track, "Danza Kuduro," remains at No. 1.
