His rework of the Edgar Joel and Anthony Colón '90s classic jumps 18-9.
Luis Figueroa earns his first top 10 on any Billboard airplay chart as “Hasta El Sol De Hoy” surges up the list with a nine-spot jump, rising 18-9 on the Tropical Airplay chart (dated May 22). It ties for the largest positional jump into the top 10 in 2021, following Victor Manuelle and La India’s “Víctimas Las Dos,” which also surged nine positions on the March 6-dated list, vaulting 15-6.
“Hasta El Sol De Hoy” pushes up the chart with a lofty 108% gain in audience impressions, to 1.6 million, earned in the week ending May 16, according to MRC Data. It concurrently takes the week’s Greatest Gainer honor.
Figueroa’s rework of the 1993 hit “Hasta El Sol de Hoy,” written by Oscar Domingo Derudi and performed by Edgar Joel and his orchestra with Anthony Colón on lead vocals, is an homage to Colón, Figueroa’s uncle. It’s one of 11 songs from his forthcoming album Canciones del Alma, due May 28.
