David Bisbal to Launch U.S. Leg of “En Tus Planes Tour” in September

David Bisbal is hoping he’ll appear in your plans

After postponing his 2020 tour dates, the 41-year-old Spanish singer is hitting the road for his 2021 En Tus Planes trek that is set to kick off September 30 at The Fillmore in Miami.

David Bisbal

The coast-to-coast U.S. tour — which will follow Bisbal’s 11 shows in Spain over the summer — will make stops in major cities like Los Angeles, New York and Chicago.

The 16-date tour will wrap up October 30 in San Jose, Calif.

Bisbal’s En Tus Planes tour is named after his 2020 album that includes star-studded collaborations featuring Alejandro Fernández (“Abriré la Puerta“), Sebastian Yatra (“A Partir de Hoy“) and Carrie Underwood (“Tears of Gold“).

Billboard caught up with the Spanish star earlier this year at the Latin AMAs, where he talked about his unprecedented song with Underwood. “The song was part of one of my projects and when I discovered the power ‘Tears of Gold’ had, I knew it needed a powerful voice,” he explained. “That’s why we got in touch with Carrie’s team. She said yes from the very beginning and I’m very grateful for that. In fact, it was her idea to sing some of her parts in Spanish.”

David Bisbal Teams Up with Carrie Underwood for Bilingual Uptempo Pop Ballad “Tears of Gold”

David Bisbal is shedding tears with an American Idol

The 41-year-old Spanish singer, songwriter and actor has joined voices with Carrie Underwood for the bilingual single “Tears of Gold.”

David Bisbal x Carrie Underwood

The dancetastic single – a soaring, uptempo pop ballad – features Bisbal and Underwood’s powerful voices.

It’s vintage Bisbal, who’s always had a flair for the dramatic. And, it’s Underwood’s first-ever foray into recorded musica en español.

When Bisbal first heard the demo, “I immediately knew it was an amazing track that needed a special talent, and voice, to work with me on a duet,” he explains. “As an artist and vocalist, I listen to a lot of songs, determine the style and sound, and am involved in the process of my collaborators for my projects.”

Bisbal took “Tears of Gold,” originally written by Paul Harris, Matt Schwartz and Cameron Forbes, plus “Despacito” producers Andrés Torres and Mauricio Rengifo, who added Spanish lines to turn the track into a bilingual song.

When he approached Underwood to sing it as a duet, she was game, even though she’d be singing in both English and Spanish, and despite the fact that “Tears of Gold” is not a country song but purely a pop track.

“I was very excited that Carrie wanted to record a bilingual song with lyrics in both English and my language, Spanish,” says Bisbal, who also sings in Spanish and English on the track. “It is a big moment for me personally to be joined by such a powerful voice in music on a track that connects Latin, pop and country music together in this way. It’s a beautiful moment for our music genres and I am thankful for Carrie to collaborate with me for this release.”

The sleekly elegant video for “Tears of Gold” was shot in Los Angeles, in urban backgrounds that highlight the strength of Bisbal and Underwood’s voices.

Christian Nodal Earns 7th Top 10 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay Chart with “De Los Besos Que Te Di”

It’s Luck No. 7 for Christian Nodal

The 20-year-oldMexican singer-songwriter has notched his seventh Top 10 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart dated August 31, with “De Los Besos Que Te Di.” 

Christian Nodal

The second single off his second studio album Ahora rises 11-7 in its seventh week. 

The tune moves ahead with 9.3 million in audience (up 7%).

Nodal first checked into the list’s top 10 when first chart entry, “Adios Amor,” peaked at No. 5 in 2017. Since then he’s logged six more top 10s, all of which have been solo efforts, unaccompanied by another act, except for “Probablemente,” which featured David Bisbal (a No. 3 peak).

On the Regional Mexican Airplay chart, “De Los Besos Que Te Di” continues at No. 1 for a second week after it landed atop the chart in its eighth week.

Christian Nodal Earns Third Top 10 Hit on Billboard’s Regional Mexican Songs Chart

The strack earned 5.2 million in audience (up 30 percent) in the week ending December 17 according to Nielsen Music.

Nodal’s latest top 10 follows two previous leaders, both in 2017: “Probablemente,” featuring David Bisbal (No. 1 for four weeks) and “Adios Amor” (No. 1 for seven weeks).

All three tracks are from Nodal’s debut studio album, Me Dejé Llevar, which returns to No. 1 on the Regional Mexican Albums chart for a 12th nonconsecutive week (up 3-1).

The set earned 3,000 equivalent album units in the week ending December 14 (up 4 percent). The album debuted atop the list dated September 16, and has spent more weeks at No. 1 in 2017 than any other album. (Banda Sinaloense MS de Sergio Lizarraga’s En Vivo: Guadalajara — Monterrey has scored eight weeks in 2017, of its 15 total weeks atop the list. (En Vivo debuted at No. 1 in 2015, and has notched additional weeks at No. 1 in both 2016 and 2017.)

Calibre 50

The track earns 10 million in audience (up five percent) in the week ending October 15, according to Nielsen Music.

The song bumps Christian Nodal’s “Probablemente,” featuring David Bisbal, to No. 2, after a four-week run at No. 1. “Probablemente” is down 4 percent to 9.9 million in audience.

Calibre 50’s topical single — which is about a Mexican migrant’s struggles and is featured on the group’s new album, Guerra de Poder — concurrently holds a spot in the top 10 on the Hot Latin Songs chart for a seventh week, dipping 7-8 and hiking 4 percent in airplay in the tracking week ending Oct. 12. The song is Calibre 50’s ninth top 10 on the ranking.

Further, the song’s music video has collected over 45 million global views on YouTube since its posting on August 23.

Christian Nodal’s Debut Album Opens at No. 1 on Billboard’s Regional Mexican Albums Chart

Christian Nodal is No. 1 with a bullet… 

The 18-year-old Mexican singer-songwriter’s debut album Me Deje Llevar has opened at No. 1 on Billboard’s Regional Mexican Albums chart with 9,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending August 31, according to Nielsen Music.

 Christian Nodal

In addition, Nodal also arrives at No. 2 on the Top Latin Albums chart.

Of the total sum, 6,000 were in traditional album sales, helping Nodal also open at No. 2 on the Latin Album Sales chart.

Concurrently, Nodal’s second single “Probablemente,” featuring David Bisbal, rises 25-20 on the Hot Latin Songs chart.
