Anthony Could Land His First Spanish-Language Top 10 Album on the Billboard 200

He may have a storied and successful career, but Marc Anthony is still capable of firsts…

The 44-year-old Puerto Rican singer-songwriter could land his first Spanish-language album on the Billboard 200 chart.

While Selena Gomez’s Stars Dance heads for No. 1 on the chart, Anthony’s latest album, 3.0, could log the second-highest debut on the charts with 30,000 copies sold in its first week.

Anthony’s last album, Iconos, started with 24,000 at No. 11 in 2010.

If “3.0” starts in the top 10, it will be his first Spanish-language top 10 set, and his first top 10 overall since 2002’s Mended debuted and peaked at No. 3.

3.0 may also net his largest sales week since 2004, when Amar Sin Mentiras opened with 35,000 at No. 26.

Anthony Currently Recording New Salsa Album…

He’s  the top-selling tropical salsa artist of all time… And Marc Anthony’s ready to make you mover las caderas all over again…

The 44-year-old Puerto Rican singer is back in the studio recording his next record with noted producer Sergio George.

“We’re doing a salsa album with brand new songs,” confirmed George to Billboard.

Anthony is recording the album in Miami, with musicians being flown in from salsa capitals Puerto Rico and New York.

George, who recently launched the career of bachata-pop idol Prince Royce, worked with Anthony on the gold-selling Todo a su tiempo, and his 1993 salsa debut, Otra nota.

Anthony’s last studio album was 2010’s Iconos, which featured the singer’s emotive versions of classic love ballads made famous by Latin pop stars.

The idea for Anthony’s upcoming return to recording salsa came out of George and Anthony’s encounter at the Curacao North Sea Jazz Festival in August, where Anthony sang as part of George’s All Star Salsa Friends. The band of salsa legends included Anthony, along with Cheo Feliciano, José Alberto “El Canario”, Luis Enrique and other greats of the genre. George is preparing to put out a CD and DVD of that concert on his label, Top Stop Music, which also released Enrique’s 2012 Latin Grammy-winning salsa album Soy y sere.

“Salsa music is still very loved, very hot, but there aren’t a lot of good new salsa interpreters,” George remarked. “It’s still relying upon the legends who really can do it.”

George hinted that Anthony’s new album, to be released by Sony U.S. Latin, could re-invigorate the genre, just as Todo a su tiempo did in its day.

“There might be a couple of surprises on this album that people won’t expect from him,” George said, adding that a single could be out at the beginning of 2013. “This is totally new.”
