Joy Huerta is bringing a woman’s voice to Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart…
The 29-year-old Mexican singer, half of the Latin Grammy-winning brother-sister duo Jesse & Joy, has helped bring some much-needed girl power to the chart as the pair’s “Ecos de Amor” bows at No. 41.
Along with being the week’s highest debut on the chart, “Ecos de Amor” is also the first female-led song to appear on the chart in a whopping 22 weeks (Joy provides the vocals on the track).
The arrival is driven, in part, by a 17 percent increase at radio, also debuting at No. 49 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart with 2.8 million audience impressions.
“Ecos de Amor” is Jesse & Joy’s 11th Hot Latin Songs hit, dating back to 2008 when “Espacio Sideral” peaked at No. 35.
Their best showing, however, came in 2012 when “Corre!” reached No. 4.
