Also, New No. 1s for Mana, Tony Dize, and Nengo Flow
Spanish pop singer Natalia Jiménez arrives at No. 2 on Top Latin Albums with her second solo studio album, Creo En Mi , which opens with 4,000 copies sold in the week ending March 22, according to Nielsen Music. The entrance trumps her debut solo set, Natalia, which arrived at No. 4 in 2011 with 3,000 units. The album’s title track, and lead single, peaked at No. 12 on Hot Latin Songs in September, reaching her highest rank as a lead act. She spent two weeks at No. 1 as a featured guest on Ricky Martin’s “Lo Mejor De Mi Vida Eres Tu” in 2011. Jiménez is a coach on Telemundo’s talent show La Voz Kids, currently in its third season.
Mana’s Tie-Breaking No. 1: Mana adds a new Latin Pop Airplay No. 1 to its tally as “Mi Verdad” featuring Shakira steps 2-1, bringing the band’s career total to 12. The dozen chart-toppers breaks the group out of a tie with Cristian Castro, as they now rank as the act with the third-most No. 1s. For Shakira, “Verdad” helps her solidify her standing at the artist with the second-most leaders, as she and Mana both trail behind Enrique Iglesias (20) for the all-time mark.
