Just over one year after the death of Ariel Camacho, lead singer of regional Mexican group Ariel Camacho y Los Plebes del Rancho, the new incarnation of the group, Los Plebes del Rancho de Ariel Camacho (renamed in tribute to the former front man) debuts at No. 1 on Top Latin Albums with Recuerden Mi Estilo. The release sold 6,000 copies in the week ending March 10 (according to Nielsen Music) and marks the first charting album with new singer, Jose Manuel Lopez Castro.

It’s the first No. 1 for the trio who earned two top five’s with its original singer: El Karma peaked at No. 4 (chart dated March 14, 2015), following his death on Feb. 25, 2015, while Hablemos reached No. 2 on the Nov. 28, 2015 chart.

Over on Hot Latin Songs, the set’s lead single “Del Negociante” falls 13-15 from its peak, gathering 1.1 million U.S. streams during the tracking week ending March 10 (a six percent dip). Meanwhile, “No Lo Hice Bien” steps 22-21, “Que Caro Estoy Pagando” slips 18-23, and “El Mentado” remains at No. 49 for a second week.

Los Tucanes de Tijuana Score 41st Charting Set: Regional Mexican group Los Tucanes de Tijuana bow at No. 2 on Top Latin Albums with Corridos Time, Season Two: Los Implacables (2,000 copies sold), marking the 41st ranking album for the veteran act. The arrival extends their lead for the third-most charting sets of any act on the chart. The only other artists to have more charting albums are Conjunto Primavera (43) and Los Temerarios (45).

Album single “Panchito El F1” concurrently jumps 42-35 on Hot Latin Songs, reaching a new peak in its sixth week. It also hits a new high on Regional Mexican Songs, hopping 20-18 with 3.4 million audience impressions (down three percent).

‘Traidora’ Triggers Tropical Record: Gente de Zona hops 3-1 with “Traidora,” featuring Marc Anthony, in its 10th charting week on Tropical Songs (up 31 percent in plays at the format in the week ending March 13), earning the Cuban duo their fourth No. 1. The crowning climb gives Marc Anthony his 27th career No. 1 on the chart, breaking him out of a tie with Victor Manuelle to now lead as the artist with the most chart-toppers ever.
