Newcomer Christian Nodal vaulted to the top of music charts with his debut single “Adios Amor,” thanks to heavy 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. The single’s official music video has reached more than 250 million views on YouTube, a rare feat for a new artist.
Nominated this year in the category of Favorite Regional Mexican Artist by iHeartRadio, Gerardo Ortiz is a veteran of the music business. Gerardo Ortiz notches his eighth No. 1 on the Regional Mexican Songs airplay chart with “Regresa Hermosa,” earning the record for most No. 1s among solo artists in the history of the 22-year-old chart, surpassing previous record holder Vicente Fernandez for the title.
Newcomer Ozuna is a true music maven and an online powerhouse with millions of followers. Earlier this year he managed to simultaneously place six songs on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart, a first for an independent artist and a rare achievement in the music industry. He is in the midst of his Odisea World Tour where he has performed at sold-out shows around the globe. He recently became the first music artist to pack the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles in a solo concert without ever releasing a music album. Ozuna will release his first music album titled “Odisea” on August 11.
Olga Tañón has been a trendsetting force in Latin music, entertaining audiences for over twenty-five years with her unmistakable voice, electrifying stage performances and catalog of hit songs. The iconic Puerto Rican singer-songwriter has sold millions of albums worldwide and holds the record for most top 10 hits (27) for a female artist on the Billboard Tropical Airplay chart. She recently released her 14th studio album “Olga Tañón y Punto.”
