Top Latin Albums greets a new No. 1 as Juan Luis Guerra arrives with Todo Tiene Su Hora (6,000 copies sold in the week ending Nov. 16, according to Nielsen SoundScan). It's the third No. 1 set for the Dominican singer-songwriter. The new album's lead single, "Tus Besos," spends a fifth consecutive week atop Latin Airplay, making it his second-longest running No. 1 in his 25-year history on the chart ("Cuando Me Enamoro" led for 17 weeks in 2010). The track likewise tops Latin Pop Airplay for a second week.

Manuelle Back On Top: Salsa veteran Victor Manuelle extends his mark for second-most No. 1s on Tropical Songs as "Que Suenen Los Tambores" hops 4-1 to crown the list, giving him a 24th leader. (Only Marc Anthony has more, with 25.) The record has juggled between both artists in the past. "Tambores" grows by 30 percent in spins, to 643, during the tracking week ending Nov. 16, according to Nielsen BDS. In addition to the salsa cut, a pop-leaning version, "Que Suenen Los Tambores (Pa'l Mundo)," is also being worked at Latin pop outlets.

Pablo Alboran Tops Latin Pop: Spanish pop singer Pablo Alboran takes the top spot on Latin Pop Albums with his latest set Terral (2,000 units). It's his third entry on the chart, and his first No. 1. Alboran is slated to perform at the 15th annual Latin Grammy Awards on Thursday (Nov. 20) alongside Mexican sibling duo Jesse & Joy.

'Frozen' Finds a Hot Latin Songs Debut: A Spanish version of the wildly popular song "Let It Go" from Disney's Frozen is the Hot Shot Debut on Hot Latin Songs due solely to streaming. "Libre Soy," performed by Mexican singer and actress Carmen Sarahi, lands at No. 28 logging 464,000 domestic streams during the tracking week (nearly 100 percent stemming from YouTube). The singer lent her voice as the role of Elsa in the Latin American version of the film Frozen: Una Aventura Congelada. The soundtrack debuted in the top 10 on Latin Pop Albums on Oct. 18 (No. 6). Sarahi gained recognition in 2013 as a participant on The Voice… Mexico's third season where she made it to the knockout rounds.
