330.6 MILLION U.S. STREAMS FOR LUIS MIGUEL: Warner’s Latin operation saw both its U.S. and Latin American market shares rise in 2018, thanks in large part to the return of Luis Miguel, who became the most-streamed artist on Spotify Mexico. He also generated nearly 331 million U.S. streams, up 42 percent from 2017, and notched the highest-grossing Latin tour of the year. International development of Brazil’s Anitta and Argentina’s Paulo Londra, the pairing of Cardi B with Bad Bunny and J Balvin and a slew of new artists also helped the bottom line. “We’re investing big in A&R,” says Zabala, citing hits by new acts Piso 21 and Wolfine, among others.
