Remmy Valenzuela is standing tall on the Billboard charts…
The 23-year-old regional Mexican newcomer claims the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums with De Alumno A Maestro, selling 3,000 first-week copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Valenzuela, known as El Muchacho De La Voz Ronca (The Boy with the Husky Voice), also bullets at its No. 6 peak to date on Billboard’s Regional Mexican Songs with “Te Toco Perder” (5.6 million audience impressions, according to Nielsen BDS).
Last year, he reached No. 32 on the chart with “Te Olvidare,” the title track from his debut album.
Valenzuela started his short musical career at the age of 12 in a group called Los Estudents. By age 13, he was teaching music at his school. Despite his young age, he has shared stages with Los Tucanes De Tijuana, Código FN, Chuy Lizárraga, La Arrolladora Banda El Limón and the late Jenni Rivera.
