Ricky Martin scores his 24th top 10 as “Adios” jumps 16-9 on Hot Latin Songs. The rise is fueled by Martin’s performance of the uptempo song on the 15th annual Latin Grammy Awards, which aired on Univision on Nov. 20. The performance boosted the tune’s digital sales 151 percent (to 3,000 downloads) in the week ending Nov. 23, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The rise in sales also drives the track 15-4 on Latin Digital Songs.
“Adios” pushes Martin ahead of Gloria Estefan on the list of acts with the most top 10 hits on Hot Latin Songs. Luis Miguel leads all artists, with 39 top 10s, followed by Enrique Iglesias (34), Chayanne (29), Cristian Castro (29), Marco Antonio Solis (25), Martin (24) and Estefan (23).
In addition to his solo turn on the awards, Martin also performed with Mexican duo Camila, singing their track “Perdon.” It also enjoyed a post-show jump in sales (130 percent, to over 2,000 downloads), rising 21-9 on Latin Digital Songs. On the Latin Grammy Awards’ red carpet, Martin announced that his upcoming studio album will be released early next year.
