The singer has the top three selling Latin Albums of the week & a record 11 titles on Hot Latin Songs.
The death of Mexican singer-songwriter Joan Sebastian sparks a surge of chart climbs and entries across formats. The Grammy award winning composer, who has penned songs for some of the biggest regional Mexican stars -- including Vicente Fernandez and Pepe Aguilar -- died on July 13 at 64 after a battle with cancer.
On Hot Latin Songs, 11 of Sebastian’s tracks enter the chart -- the most concurrent titles an act has ever had on the list. And, all of them are in the top half of the tally, including four in the top 10. One of his most memorable hits, “Un Idiota,” re-enters at No. 2 powered by 1.9 million weekly streams and 2,000 digital downloads sold in the week ending July 16 (up 2,306 percent according to Nielsen Music). “Un Idiota” originally peaked at No. 22 in 2001.
