It’s a big first for Kyen?Es?…
Saban Music Group’s Kyen?Es? has scored their first No. 1 on Billboard’s Tropical Airplay chart, their first No. 1 on a Latin airplay chart, as the collaborative “El Carnaval de Celia: A Tribute (La Vida Es Un Carnaval/ La Negra Tiene…)” jumps 2-1 with 8 million in audience (up 43%) earned in the week ending September 6.
The reimagination draws inspiration from Celia Cruz‘s classic hits: “La Vida es Un Carnaval” (No. 27 peak on Tropical Airplay, 2003), “La Negra Tiene Tumbao” (No. 4 peak, 2002) and “Rie y Llora” (11-week No. 1, 2003).
The track also sees progress elsewhere on the Latin charts: it surges on the Latin Airplay chart with a 17-5 hike, and debuts at No. 27 on Hot Latin Songs.
