Urban up-and-comer Justin Quiles was a strong presence on Billboard‘s Latin charts this week (dated Aug. 20) with the release of his new album. The singer and songwriter earned his first solo charting set with La Promesa debuting at No. 2 on the Top Latin Albums chart, while his single “Si Ella Quisiera” reached a new peak on the Latin Rhythm Airplay chart, hopping 20-18.
