The 52-year-old Puerto Rican salsa singer’s 23-date North American tour will kick off on August 27 in San Antonio’s AT&T Center.

Marc-Anthony

The “Marc Anthony Tour,” with stops in major cities including Chicago, Miami and Los Angeles and two dates in Canada, is produced and presented by CMN and Magnus Media with tickets to go on sale on Friday, April 30 at 10 a.m. on Ticketmaster.

The coast-to-coast tour announcement follows the chart-topping singer’s “Marc Anthony Una Noche” virtual concert, which was streamed free of charge to fans on his YouTube channel on April 18 after technical difficulties nixed the original event.

One of the highest-grossing touring acts in the Latin realm, in 2019, Anthony sold 233,962 tickets in the U.S. alone and grossed $25.4 million from just 24 shows, according to figures reported to Billboard Boxscore.

Alejandro Fernández to Receive Icon Award at Latin American Music Awards

Alejandro Fernández has officially reached icon status…

The 49-year-old Mexican singer will receive the Icon Award during the sixth edition of the Latin American Music Awards, Telemundo has announced.

Alejandro Fernandez

With a career that spans more than four decades, the son of regional Mexican legend Vicente Fernández has sold over over 35 million records and has collaborated with artists like Beyoncé, Plácido DomingoChristina Aguilera and Marc Anthony.

Most recently, his Grammy-nominated 2020 album Hecho En México debuted at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Top Latin Albums chart becoming the first act to achieve No. 1s on the tally in the 1990s, ‘00s, ‘10s, and ‘20s.

The Icon Award is given to an artist who interprets our life in their songs, forms an important part of Latin America’s history, and is considered a musical hero whose name exceeds all generations, according to statement by Telemundo.

“In addition to his immense contribution to Latin music, his service to those most in need, coupled with his constant support for Latino immigrants in the United States, make him worthy of the Latin AMAs Icon Award.”

The Jalisco-born star will also perform at this year’s Latin AMAs, which will take place on April 15 and will be broadcast live from the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida.

Fernández joins the previously-announced star-studded lineup that includes Ozuna, Maluma, Banda MS, Camilo, Carlos Vives, Eslabon Armado, Karol G, Los Dos Carnales, José Luis “El Puma” Rodríguez and Piso 21. The ceremony will also include a special tribute to the late regional Mexican singer-songwriter Joan Sebastian.

Following safety protocols to protect the health and safety of all involved, the 2021 awards show will honor some of the most influential Latin artists of today, as voted by fans in 25 categories including pop, urban, tropical, regional Mexican and the newly-added favorite virtual concert.

This year’s top nominees include Karol G and J Balvin with nine nods each, followed by Bad Bunny with eight, Ozuna with seven, and Anuel AA and Camilo with six each.

The 2021 Latin AMAs, hosted by actress Jacqueline Bracamontes, will air at 7:00 pm ET on Thursday, April 15, via Telemundo and will broadcast simultaneously on Universo and throughout the Americas on Telemundo Internacional.

Daddy Yankee Named Songwriter of the Year at This Year’s ASCAP Latin Music Awards

Daddy Yankee is celebrating a massive honor…

The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) has revealed the 2021 winners of the ASCAP Latin Music Awards, with the 45-year-old Puerto Rican reggaeton singer/rapper earning the top prize.

Daddy Yankee

Honoring the most performed Latin songs of the past year, Daddy Yankee nabbed the title of ASCAP Songwriter of the Year for the third time, following his songwriter-artist of the year wins in 2019 and 2017. Yankee has a total of 42 ASCAP Latin Music Awards.

The reggaeton veteran had a promising year with many collaborations that included Sech, Play-N-Skillz, Zion & Lennox, Anuel AA, and Kendo Kaponi, to name a few.

He closed off 2020 with his Marc Anthony-assisted salsa single “De Vuelta Pa’ La Vuelta,” which arrived at No. 6 on the Hot Latin Songs chart (dated Dec. 26). His current single “Problema” debuted at No. 9 on the chart dated March 13, earning him his 36th top 10 on the list, which blends airplay, streams, and digital sales.

Meanwhile, Karol G and Nicki Minaj’s viral collaboration “Tusa,” which became the first song by two lead female artists to debut at No. 1 on Hot Latin Songs, received the ASCAP Song of the Year award.

“Tusa,” which is an empowering ode to heartbreak, was written by Keityn and Juan Camilo Vargas Vásquez and published by Girl Power Publishing, JCV Music, KCMusic, Kobalt, and Sony Music Publishing.

“We are so thrilled to honor your amazing achievements of the past year at our El Premio ASCAP, our annual Latin Music Awards,” said Paul Williams, ASCAP chairman of the board and president, in a video. “Once again we will come together in spirit and solidarity. Starting today, we welcome your fans from all over the world to join in and celebrate your success. On behalf of your ASCAP family, I want to say congratulations to all of this year’s winners for your incredible musical achievements. Felicitaciones!”

Hosted by Colombian singer, rapper, and songwriter Farina, the event kicked off with a livestream concert featuring winners Danny Ocean, Elena Rose, and Vibarco.

The ASCAP Latin Music Awards are presented until March 25 in both Spanish and English via @ASCAPLatino and @ASCAP on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook with the hashtags #ElPremioASCAP and #ASCAPAwards.

Marc Anthony’s “Un Amor Eterno” Rises to No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay Chart

Marc Anthony has another No. 1 single…

The 52-year-old Puerto Rican singer’s “Un Amor Eterno” shoots to the top of Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart with a 9-1 burst on the list dated March 20.

Marc-Anthony

The new achievement breaks him out of a tie with Prince Royce (Juanes and Yandel) to become the tropical act with the third most No. 1s, standing behind Romeo Santos (17) and Carlos Vives (15).

“Un Amor Eterno” rallied to the top with a 58% increase in audience impressions, to 10 million, earned in the week ending March 14.

The song scored its biggest gains in the tracking week on New York’s WSKQ (up 854,000 in audience) and WPAT (up 626,000), as well as San Juan, Puerto Rico’s WZNT (up 610,000) and Los Angeles’ KLVE, the latter of which put the song in prominent rotation for the first time (up 387,000).

 

Marc Anthony Developing Music for Sofia Vergara’s Animated Film “Koati”

Marc Anthony is bringing his music to the big screen…

The 52-year-old Puerto Rican Grammy-winning and his Magnus Studios team are joining Sofia Vergara’s animated feature comedy, Koati.

Marc Anthony

The project’s soundtrack, executive produced by the salsa music icon and produced by Grammy-winning producer and songwriter Julio Reyes Copello, will include 10 original songs by notable names in Latin music and will be released on the Magnus/Sony Music Latin labels and distributed by Sony Music Latin worldwide.

Produced by Upstairs Animation, Latin WE Productions and Los Hijos de JackKoati follows three unlikely heroes — Nachi, a free-spirited coatí; Xochi, a fearless monarch butterfly; and Pako, a hyperactive glass frog — as they embark on an adventure to stop wicked coral snake Zaina (Vergara) from destroying their rainforest homeland and friends.

Produced simultaneously in English and Spanish, the voice cast includes Oscar nominee Adriana Barraza (Babel), Joe Manganiello (Justice League), Eduardo Franco (Stranger Things) and actors-musicians Evaluna Montaner (Club 57) and Sebastián Villalobos (Soy Luna). 

The film, which is due to be released later this year, was developed by producer-creator Anabella Dovarganes-Sosa, executive producer-chief story consultant Melissa Escobar and executive producer and lead actress, Vergara. Luis Balaguer and Felipe Pimiento will also act as executive producers. Timeless Films handles sales.

Latin American talent runs through the project from director Rodrigo Pérez-Castro, production designer and visual development artist Simón Varela, writer and cultural consultant Ligiah Villalobos, and producer Julio Reyes Copello, who also composed the film’s score.

Anthony said: “I am thrilled to join Sofia in a project where for the first time a renowned team of Hispanic producers, music stars, comedians, and actors come together outside of Hollywood to create an animated movie set up in the Latin American rainforests, which I feel is really exciting and long overdue. I will leave no stone unturned on the music being authentic and celebrating the amazing story and message of Koati. It’s time to show the world, and share what we Latinos have been enjoying for years in a very fun, inspirational film.”

Vergara added: “Koati is a beautiful animated film full of fun and exotic characters that will make you laugh and also touch your heart. I couldn’t dream of a better partner than Marc Anthony to bring this project to life with authentic and powerful Latin American music. Our team is very proud to finally share Koati with families around the world very soon!”

Anthony is the top-selling tropical salsa artist of all time. The two-time Grammy and six-time Latin Grammy winner has sold more than 12 million albums worldwide.

Marc Anthony to Perform “One Night Only” Livestream Concert in April

Marc Anthony is ready to perform in your living room…

The 52-year-old New York-born Puerto Rican singer/songwriter, one of the world’s top touring acts, will perform a single livestream concert that’ll be promoted and marketed for global consumption.

Marc Anthony

One Night Only, set to stream on April 17, is expected to be seen by over 100,000 fans worldwide, according to organizers.

One Night Only will feature Marc Anthony performing a full-length show accompanied by his full band of 20-plus musicians and featuring “surprises.” The show will be produced by Magnus Studios, a division of Magnus, Marc Anthony’s sports and entertainment company.

Worldwide marketing efforts will be led by Loud & Live, the Miami-based entertainment, marketing, media & live events company. Video and film director Carlos Perez will direct the special, which will stream from Miami.

It’s the first livestream by a major artist since the shut down of major touring last year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Big names like J Balvin, Ricardo Montaner and most recently, Fito Páez, have played major livestreams.

But Anthony’s show seems poised to become the largest ticketed Latin livestream, thanks to the mix of the artist’s strong live appeal coupled with a massive marketing and promotion effort that includes both local and international efforts.

“Our goal is to make this the biggest Latin global livestream to date,” says Nelson Alabareda, CEO of Loud & Live. “Marc is a huge ticket seller and a guy who sells out everywhere he goes. But can only do 100 shows a year. How do his fans [in far-flung places] see him?”

“The first thing we did was an analysis of social media to really understand where those Marc fans are,” adds Albareda, whose company counts marketing as one of its biggest strengths.

According to Albareda, ticket prices will hover in the $20-$40 range in all territories. For those seeking a plus, there will be an after party hosted by Alex Sensation with an added bump to the ticket price.

“We think this is going to be an historic moment for a legendary artist,” says Michel Vega, co-founder and CEO of Magnus. “It’s a love letter from Marc to his fans after not performing for nearly a year.”

Maluma to Perform at This Year’s Premio Lo Nuestro Awards Show

Maluma is bringing a taste of Jamaica to this year’s Premio Lo Nuestro

The 27-year-old Colombian superstar is set to premiere hits from his surprise new album 7 Días en Jamaica during the awards show on February 18.

Maluma

Meanwhile, Marc Anthony and Daddy Yankee will perform their new hit, “De Vuelta Pa La Vuelta.”

The three stars are the latest performers announced for the first Latin music award show of the year, which will air on Univision.

Other performers announced include Mexican star Carlos Rivera, who will perform “100 Años” alongside Maluma. And in a first, the entire Montaner family – Evaluna, Mau y Ricky and dad Ricardo Montaner — will be joined by Camilo (who is married to Evaluna Montaner) to perform “Amén,” which was released during the holidays.

Regional Mexican rising star Lenin Ramírez will also perform alongside Grupo Firme, as will Chesca; with Prince Royce taking the stage alongside Natti Natasha. The latter will sing their hit “Antes que salga el sol” together on television for the first time.

They join previously announced performers Los Ángeles Azules, Anuel AA, CNCO, Ozuna and Gloria Trevi.

Premios Lo Nuestro will air on Univision on February 18, live from the AmericanAirlines Arena.

Daddy Yankee Breaks Record for Most Top 10s on Billboard’s Latin Airplay Chart with Marc Anthony Collab “De Vuelta Pa’ La Vuelta”

Daddy Yankee is rompe-iendo records…

The 43-year-old Puerto Rican rapper, singer, songwriter, actor and record producer has broken the record for the most top 10s on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart, as “De Vuelta Pa’ La Vuelta,” his collaboration with Marc Anthony, rises 11-8 on the January 16 survey.

Daddy Yankee x Marc Anthony with Marc

Daddy Yankee breaks out of a tie with Enrique Iglesias and takes possession of the mark for the most top 10s since the chart began in 1994.

The song’s advance on the chart was assisted by an 11% boost in audience impressions, to 8 million, collected in the week ending January 10, according to MRC Data.

Going down the list of the artists with at least 25 top 10s in the history of Latin Airplay, only one female act secures a space:

Most Top 10s, Latin Airplay
Daddy Yankee, 41
Enrique Iglesias, 40
J Balvin, 32
Shakira, 31
Ricky Martin, 27
Marc Anthony, 26
Marco Antonio Solis, 26
Ozuna, 26
Cristian Castro, 25
Wisin & Yandel, 25

“De Vuelta Pa’ La Vuelta” was co-written by Daddy Yankee and Marc Anthony alongside Edgar ‘Edge’ Barrera, Elena Rosa, Rafael A. Pina Nieves and produced by longtime hit maker, Sergio George.

The salsa collaboration is Yankee’s 41st Latin Airplay top 10, dating back to his first top 10 hit “Lo Que Pasó, Pasó” in 2005. Marc Anthony, meanwhile, has logged 26 top 10s in four decades of chart history, 11 of which have hit No. 1.

Elsewhere, “De Vuelta” dips 13-14 on the all-metric Hot Latin Songs chart with declines in digital sales and streams. On Tropical Airplay, however, it remains at No. 1 for a third week.

Daddy Yankee Teams Up with Marc Anthony for Salsa Single “De Vuelta Pa’ La Vuelta”

Daddy Yankee is getting into the swing of it…

The 43-year-old Puerto Rican reggaetonero has joined voices with Daddy Yankee on the salsa single “De Vuelta Pa’ La Vuelta.”

Daddy Yankee x Marc Anthony

Anthony, known as the King of Salsa, cedes the opening spotlight to Daddy Yankee, whose voice is well-suited for a traditional salsa track.

The made-for-dancing insta-classic, which, in vintage Marc Anthony style, begins with a slow intro that then breaks into an uptempo dance beat, pairs two icons who unexpectedly meet each other halfway.

Sergio George produced the track, a fusion of two very different distinct voices with a deep respect for the genre that will no doubt give an infusion of energy to the tropical charts.

Anitta to Perform at This Year’s Latin Grammys

Anitta is heading to the Latin Grammys

The 27-year-old Brazilian singer has been added to the list of performers set to take the stage at this year’s Latin Grammys, according to the Latin Recording Academy.

Anitta

Anitta appears on the final star-studded list of performers that includes Rauw Alejandro, J Balvin, Camilo, Lupita Infante, Juanes, Mariachi Sol De México De José Hernández, Ricky Martin, Natalia, Jimenez, José Luis Perales, Prince Royce, and Carla Morrison.

Those artists join previously-announced performers Anuel AA, Marc Anthony, Bad Bunny, Calibre 50, Pedro Capó, Julio Reyes Copello, Alex Cuba, Alejandro Fernández, Karol G, Kany García, Guaynaa, Los Tigres del Norte, Víctor Manuelle, Ricardo Montaner, Christian Nodal, Debi Nova, Fito Páez, Nathy Peluso, Raquel Sofía and Sebastián Yatra.

The 21st annual ceremony, led by 13-time nominee J Balvin, will also celebrate several Latin music icons, with special tributes including Julio Iglesias, Pedro Infante, Juan Luis Guerra, Roberto Carlos, and Héctor Lavoe.

Returning with a “music makes us human” theme that highlights musical excellence and the power of music in times of despair, the event will also showcase diverse stories of hope, community, sense of purpose, and celebration.

Hosted by Carlos Rivera, the 2020 Latin Grammys will air at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on Thursday, November 19, via Univision.

The star-studded event will be preceded by the one-hour pre-show Noche de Estrellas, held virtually in Miami, where the majority of the categories will be awarded.
