Elena Rose Signs Record Deal with Warner Music Latina

Elena Rose is ready to record more of her own music… 

Warner Music Latina has signed a record deal with the Venezuelan singer-songwriter.

Elena RoseOver the past two years, Rose has become the go-to songwriter for artists like Becky GSelena GomezRauw AlejandroJennifer Lopez and Maluma, among others, while also releasing her own music (“La Ducha,” “Picachu”) via her indie label, Guerrera de la Luz.

“It feels like the beginning of something that was meant to be and I feel grateful that I am in a place where I feel understood, comfortable, but also excited to grow and learn even more and get out of that comfort zone to get to where we want to go so it can be truly timeless, which is a key word for me,” Rose said about the deal. “I think I’m surrounded by an amazing team that understands my vision and is willing to come with me on this crazy ride of being timeless.”

Following a move from Venezuela to Miami to pursue a career in music, Rose cites Becky G recording one of her songs, “Dollar,” as her “big break.” The track peaked at No. 27 on Hot Latin Songs (chart dated Nov. 1, 2019). Since, Rose has been on a spree writing back-to-back hits such as Maluma and J.Lo’s “Pa Ti,” Daddy Yankee and Marc Anthony’s “De Vuelta Pa’ La Vuelta” and she co-wrote five of the seven songs on Gomez’s first Spanish project, Revelación, released last year.

“Elena is a unique artist. Her lyrics, her voice, her presence and the ability she has to convey emotions is unparalleled. We are proud to be able to work together to fulfill her vision, deliver her music to the public, and make it timeless,” offered Alejandro Duque, president at Warner Music Latina.

Added, Ben Tischker, Rose’s manager: “From the moment I met her I knew she was a once in a lifetime talent. The combination of her voice, and unique songwriting ability is a rarity. It’s been an honor to be by her side as she grows into the amazing artist that she is going to become. I can’t think of a better team of people to do this with than Alejandro Duque, Hector Rivera and the team at Warner Latin.”

Rose is currently working on new music that will be part of her debut album that, which is expected before the end of the year.

Tainy is staying with Sony…

Sony Music Publishing has renewed its worldwide publishing agreement with the 32-year-old Puerto Rican chart-topping songwriter and producer.

TainyThe deal extends the company’s longstanding relationship with the hitmaker, which began in 2005 when he launched his career in Puerto Rico.

“I am grateful that my career has allowed me to reach new heights not only on the artistic and creative side, but also on the business side,” Tainy (real name Marco Masis) said in a statement. “And I appreciate having such great partners on the publishing end. Excited for the next chapter with the SMP family.”

Shakira & Rauw Alejandro

It’s the third collaborative title to rule at least two weeks in 2022, after “Entre Nosotros,” by Tiago PZK, Lit Killah, Nickie Nicole and Maria Becerra, which topped the ranking for nine weeks this year (16 overall), and Paulo Londra and Bizarrap’s “Paulo LondraBzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 23” (two weeks).

Meanwhile, Bad Bunny joins a selective group of artists who have placed four simultaneous titles in the survey’s top 10 as “Moscow Mule” rebounds 13-10, one spot below its prior No. 9 peak (May 21-28-dated rankings). The Puerto Rican’s three other top 10 titles include “Me Porto Bonito” at No. 4, “Ojitos Lindos,” which lifts 6-5, and “Titi Me Preguntó” moving up 7-6.

Here’s a look at the artist scoreboard with most simultaneous top 10 titles on the chart:

5, Maria Becerra (2022)
4, Bad Bunny (2022)
4, Tiago PZK (2022)
4, Duki (2021)
4, Daddy Yankee (2019)
4, J Balvin (2019)

The week’s Hot Shot Debut goes to Argentinians LOUTA and WOS, whose first collaboration, “Quereme,” bows at No. 49.

Chencho Corleone Earns First No. 1 in a Lead Role on a Billboard Radio Chart with “Desesperados” with Rauw Alejandro

Chencho Corleone has earned a special first…

The 43-year-old Puerto Rican singer, composer and actor has earned his first No. 1 in a lead role on a Billboard radio chart as “Desesperados,” with Rauw Alejandro, tops the Latin Airplay chart dated July 2.

Chencho Corleone“Desesperados,” promoted to radio through Duars/Sony Music Latin, rises 4-1 it its 14th week thanks to a 22% boost in audience impressions, to 10.6 million, earned in the U.S. in the week ending June 26, according to Luminate.

The track displaces another Sony Music Latin title from the lead: Prince Royce and Maria Becerra’s “Te Espero,” sending it to No. 5 after its one-week reign.

While Corleone claims his best performance among three Latin Airplay entries, Rauw clocks his ninth No. 1, all earned within a two-year period, dating back to “TBT,” with Sebastian Yatra and Manuel Turizo, in July 2020.

The surge in “Desesperados” impressions gives the song its corresponding lift on Latin Rhythm Airplay, which measures the most-heard Latin rhythmic songs also through audience impressions metrics. There, the song jumps 2-1 in its 15th week.

The move also secures Corleone his first leader in a lead role on Latin Rhythm Airplay and second overall. His maiden champ arrived almost eight years ago, through his featured role in Tito El Bambino’s five-week ruler “A Que No Te Atreves” in September 2014. As the song held atop the survey in its third week, it concurrently topped Tropical Airplay for one week (October 2014).

Corleone’s chart rewards continue across Latin charts. His first collaboration with compatriot Bad Bunny has sustained his Hot Latin Songs domination for a seven-week run (and counting): “Me Porto Bonito” leads the all-metric tally (a blend of airplay, streaming activity, and digital sales) thanks to 22.7 million official streams, up 5%, in the week ending June 23.

While “Me Porto” holds strong at No. 1 on Latin Streaming Songs, it’s the only Spanish-language track in the top 10 on the overall Streaming Songs survey, at No. 6, among a collection of five Drake debuts and four other English-language songs.

In addition to its streaming count, “Me Porto” traces its Hot Latin Songs domination to 1,000 downloads sold. The song remains at No. 2 on Latin Digital Song Sales for a second week.

Shakira Earns First No. 1 on Billboard Argentina Hot 100 Chart with Rauw Alejandro-Collab “Te Felicito”

Shakira has earned a career first…

The 45-year-old Colombian singer has scored her first No. 1 on the Billboard Argentina Hot 100 chart as “Te Felicito,” with Rauw Alejandro, rises 2-1 on the June 18-dated ranking.

Shakira & Rauw AlejandroThe track trades places with TINI’s “La Triple T,” through a 1-2 dip, after its fifth consecutive week at the lead.

It’s the first win for Shakira, dating back to her maiden visit to the tally with the top 20 “Clandestino,” with Maluma, in 2018.

The “Te Felicito” climb, meanwhile, marks Rauw Alejandro’s third No. 1 among a collection of 33 entries: “Tattoo,” with Camilo (July 2020), “Todo de Ti” (June 2021), both one-week champs, and now “Te Felicito.”

The Argentina Hot 100 ranks the most popular songs within Argentina.  The ranking is based on a weighted formula incorporating official-only streams on both subscription and ad-supported tiers of leading audio and video music services as well as national radio airplay and plays of songs featured on a variety of Argentine TV networks.

Streaming data is provided by Luminate, while radio and TV measurement is tracked by BMAT/Vericast.

“Te Felicito” is the sixth collaborative title, among eight No. 1s, to lead the tally in 2022.

Here’s the scoreboard:

Title, Artist, Peak Date
“Bar,” Tini & L-Gante (Jan. 1)
“Entre Nosotros,” Tiago pzk, LIT killa, Nicki Nicole & Maria Becerra (Jan. 8; nine weeks at No. 1)
“Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 49,” Bizarrap & Residente (March 5)
“Universo Paralelo,” La K’onga Featuring Nahuel Pennisi (March 19)
“Paulo Londra: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 23,” Paulo Londra & Bizarrap (April 30, two weeks at No. 1)
“Te Felicito,” Shakira & Rauw Alejandro (June 18)

Notably, the two other No. 1s belong to already winners Paulo Londra and TINi, both which have held atop the survey for five consecutive weeks as solo acts, unaccompanied by any other artist, with “Plan A” (starting the March 26-dated tally) and “La Triple T” (starting the chart dated May 14), respectively.

Blessd Earns First No. 1 on Any Billboard Chart with “Medallo,” Featuring Justin Quiles & Lenny Tavarez

It’s a big first for Blessd.

The 22-year-old Colombian singer-songwriter and rapper has secured his first No. 1 on a Billboard chart as “Medallo,” with Justin Quiles and Lenny Tavarez, rises 4-1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay ranking-dated May 21.

Blessd

It’s also Tavarez’s first leader on the all-Latin genre tally, Quiles captures his third among a collection of 14 entries.

“I’m really excited!” says Stiven Mesa Londoño, better known as Blessd. “When I received the news that we were No. 1 on Billboard, I was very emotional. This only makes me work harder for many more wins.”

“Medallo” hits No. 1 in its 16th week with 11 million audience impressions (up 49%) earned in the U.S. in the week ending May 12, according to Luminate.

It evicts Rosalía’s “La Fama,” with The Weeknd, down to No. 5 after its one-week on top (7.6 million, down 29%).

“Medallo” is the fifth title of 2022, which has landed at the summit in at least 16 weeks or more. The other four comprise Karol G’s “Sejodioto,” Rauw Alejandro’s “Cúrame,” and Marc Anthony’s “Mala,” all with 17 weeks to the top, and Jhay Cortez and Sech’s “Ley Seca” (19 weeks).

Further, Blessd and Tavarez join a crew of five other acts who have secured their first champ on the all-Latin genre Latin Airplay chart in 2022. Here’s a recap of the leaderboard:

Artist, Title, Artists, Peak Date
Victor Cárdenas, “El Incomprendido,” with Farruko & DJ Adoni, Jan. 29
DJ Adoni, “El Incomprendido,” with Farruko & Victor Cárdenas, Jan. 29
Lis, “SG,” with Ozuna & Megan Thee Stallion, April 2
Megan Thee Stallion, “SG,” with Ozuna and Lisa, April 2
Ed Sheeran, “Forever My Love” and “Sigue,” both with J Balvin, April 9 and April 16, respectively
Blessd, “Medallo,” with Justin Quiles and Lenny Tavarez, May 21
Lenny Tavarez, “Medallo,” with Justin Quiles and Blessd, May 21

The Ovy on the Drums-produced track, concurrently lands atop Latin Rhythm Airplay after its third week at No. 3.

“At first, the idea of ‘Medallo’ was intended to be produced together with another artist who is also well positioned in Colombia,” the 22-year-old Blessd adds. “But in the end, it did not happen. In our counter plan, Lenny and Justin joined in and the song became a global hit.”

Among the trio, “Medallo” finds its home in Blessd’s roster. The tune is one of 10 tracks on the rapper’s Hecho en Medellín album, which has not entered the charts.

“The collaboration with Lenny and Justin was incredible,” Blessd concludes. “We went from making a song to becoming very good friends, the song transcended into my personal life.”

Dimelo Flow Teams Up with Reik, Jay Wheeler & Boza for Heartbreak Anthem “Winnie Pooh”

Dimelo Flow is pulling the heartstrings with his latest single…

While the catalog of the 33-year-old Panamanian deejay and producer, whose real name is Jorge Valdés Vázquez, includes saucy perreo bangers, his new track “Winnie Pooh” is a certified heartbreak anthem.

Dimelo FlowAnd Dimelo Flow called in reinforcements: Reik, Jay Wheeler, and Boza.

“Winnie Pooh” unites the renowned Mexican trio, Puerto Rico’s romantic voice, and the Latin Grammy-nominated Panamanian act in a mid-tempo pop-reggaeton produced by Flow and presented by Rich Music.

Making reference to the lovable and beloved bear, the lyrics tell the story of a person who gave it their all in a relationship and was underappreciated. “I filled you with so many details that you couldn’t even see yourself/ I watered the rose every day until it drowned/ I did everything to have you, but it was the other way around/ Take off your makeup because that’s not who I fell in love with,” Reik sings to kick off the track.

The chorus later announces, “This Winnie Pooh has no honey left.”

Each artist adds a unique flow to the lyrics. Boza, for example, states how he’s “Gucci” and his ex-girlfriend left him for “Old Navy.” “I’m not with you and it feels great/ Even Cristiano [Rolando] loses the ball,” chants Wheeler over a chill reggae beat.

“Winnie Pooh” follows Dimelo Flow’s star-studded collaboration “Suelta” featuring Rauw Alejandro, Farruko, Maria Becerra, Mr. Vegas, and Fatman Scoop.

Both tracks will form part of his upcoming album, Always Dream.

The music video was directed by Joel DeLeon JD.”
