The rise is fueled by Martin’s performance of the uptempo song at the Latin Grammy Awards, which aired on Univision on November 20.

The performance boosted the tune’s digital sales 151 percent (to 3,000 downloads) in the week ending November 23, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The rise in sales also drives the track 15-4 on Billboard’s Latin Digital Songs chart.

“Adios” moves Martin ahead of Gloria Estefan on the list of acts with the most top 10 hits on the Hot Latin Songs chart. 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 sales bump (130 percent, to over 2,000 downloads), rising 21-9 on the Latin Digital Songs chart.

On the Latin Grammys‘ red carpet, Martin announced that his upcoming studio album will be released early next year.
