The 18-year-old is the latest young regional Mexican artist to make their mark on the chart
Newcomer Christian Nodal vaults 13-4 on the Hot Latin Songs tally (dated Feb. 25) with his debut chart hit, “Adios Amor,” thanks to lifts across airplay, digital sales and streams.
The 18-year-old regional Mexican singer from Sonora, Mexico, dubs his musical style “mariacheño,” a mix of mariachi and norteño. Nodal becomes the first regional Mexican act to reach the top five since Banda Sinaloense MS de Sergio Lizarraga’s “Solo Con Verte” peaked at No. 2 in February 2016.
Nodal’s track earned 3.8 million streams in the tracking week ending Feb. 9, a 37 percent increase. Of its total streams, 47 percent stem from YouTube views, where an official music video for the song has more than 20 million global views since its Jan. 13 release.
