Bad Bunny & Rosalia’s “La Noche De Anoche” Rises to No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay Chart

Bad Bunny is heating up the charts…

The 27-year-old Puerto Rican Latin trap and reggaeton superstar’s collaboration with Rosalia, “La Noche De Anoche,” has reached new heights on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart.

Bad Bunny x Rosalia

Bad Bunny and Rosalia’s smash hit single rises to No. 1 in its 11th week. The collaboration, which debuted at No. 47 on the chart dated February 13, rises 4-1 on the April 24-dated survey.

“La Noche De Anoche” pushes up the chart, after four weeks in the top 10, boosted by a 23% gain in audience impressions, to 10.8 million, generated in the week ending April 18, according to MRC Data.

“La Noche De Anoche” secures Bad Bunny his 14th leader, and fourth straight No. 1. He last took the crown with two-week champ, “Dakiti,” with Jhay Cortez, a pair-up that holds strong in the top 10 at No. 4 after 21 weeks.

Chris Jeday & Gaby Music Launch New Record Label ‘La Familia’

Chris Jeday is expanding his Familia

The 31-year-old Puerto Rican record producer has joined forces with Gaby Music to launch a a new record label.

Chris Jedi & Gaby Music

Jedi and the 31-year-old Puerto Rican music composer/producer, known for their work with Bad Bunny, Ozuna, Anuel AA, Lunay and, most recently, the Bad Bunny/Rosalía smash “La Noche de Anoche,” will run La Familia.

The new label will be home to Lunay, as well as newly signed Puerto Rican acts Chanell and Julito and a roster of producers that includes Dímelo Ninow and Dulce Como Candy.

The company also includes both Jedi’s and Gaby Music’s state of the art recording studios in Puerto Rico, which they see as ground zero both for production and for talent development.

“The term ‘family’ is a big deal for us and it’s a word that truly represents us,” says Jedi. “We feel that everyone in this operation is a true family, and we want everybody to feel the same and equally supported.”

“This is a vision we’ve had for years,” says Gaby music. “Beyond being successful producers, we wanted our own label and the ability to sign new talent. We have great plans with our artists and are looking forward to growing our family.”

Jedi and Gaby Music have, for several years, owned and operated record label Star Island, to which Lunay is signed, and distributed via Ingrooves. Lunay will now shift to La Familia with Star Island remaining as a sort of holding company or “mothership,” in its founders’ words.

The launch of La Familia is part of a growing group of independent labels launched by prominent executives and artists; most recently manager Walter Kolm launched his WK Records and one of his artists, reggaetón star Wisin, launched La Base Music.

But La Familia stands out because Chris Jedi and Gaby Music are perhaps the top production duo in the reggaetón realm today, and also, because their operation is fully self-financed and is currently not a joint venture with a major label or distributor. Although Lunay is distributed through a longstanding deal with Ingrooves, upcoming La Familia releases will be negotiated on a track by track basis.

“The fact that we’re producers is key,” says Jedi. “We worked in this for years and realized there was a need. We sign artists not because they have a hot single, but because we’re interested in developing the artist or the producer. To sign good talent, you need to produce or to have good taste. That’s our biggest asset. And we’ve learned how to delegate in other aspects.”

Lunay, for example, was initially managed by Jedi and Gaby Music. When his career began to take off, they tapped star manager Rebeca León, whose select roster includes Rosalía (and formerly J Balvin).

“It’s amazing to work with Chris and Gaby because they not only have incredible visión and business acumen but are also the biggest hitmakers in Latin music today,” says León. “It’s a fierce and winning combination. Lunay is in such a privileged position to be part of La Familia.”

Jedi and Gaby Music met as teenagers when they were sound engineering students in Puerto Rico. They met again in 2013, working with hitmakers Wisin & Yandel, and have been together since, working with virtually every name in the genre as both producers and songwriters.

La Familia’s staff includes label manager Sam Allison. Max Perez of Buena Vibra Group will be in charge of marketing and Normaris Cruz of The Wall Group will head PR.

Bad Bunny Teams Up with Rosalia for Steamy “SNL” Performance of “La Noche De Anoche”

Bad Bunny brought the heat to Saturday Night Live

During his debut on NBC’s late-night sketch comedy show, the 26-year-old Puerto Rican Latin trap and reggaeton singer joined voices with Rosalia for a steamy performance of their recent collaboration “La Noche De Anoche.”

Rosalia x Bad Bunny, SNL

Set against a neon-lit background, the artists romantically serenaded each other before embracing tightly for the finale.

And, the crowd soaked up every moment of the performance.

“La Noche De Anoche” is the latest single from Bad Bunny’s El Último Tour del Mundo, his third LP of 2020, which was released in December. It was the first-ever entirely Spanish-language album to reach No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.

 

Aitana Leads Pack of Premios Odeón Nominees with Five Nods

Aitana is celebrating a handful of honors…

The 2021 Premios Odeón nominations have been revealed for the second annual awards show, with the 21-year-old Spanish singer leading the pack of nominees with five nods.

Aitana

Aitana, who rose to acclaim as the runner-up on the Spanish reality television talent competition Operación Triunfo, is nominated for Odeón Pop Artist, as well as Best Pop Song for two of her singles: +,” alongside Cali y El Dandee, and “Si Tú La Quieres,” with David Bisbal, who has earned four nominations this year.

The winners are chosen by the fans, according to the official statement, “through their active participation of consuming music, both on digital platforms and with the purchase of physical formats during the previous year.”

Bad Bunny Releases Fiery Video for His Rosalia Collaboration, “La Noche de Anoche”

Bad Bunny’s latest video, featuring Rosalia, is pure fire

The 26-year-old Puerto Rican Latin trap and reggaeton superstar, who will be the musical guest on next weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live, has released the official music video for his collaboration with the 27-year-old Spanish singer-songwriter, “La Noche de Anoche.”

Bad Bunny x Rosalia

In the romantic Stillz-directed visual, Bad Bunny and Rosalía play lovers who ultimately burst into flames.

“La Noche de Anoche” appears on Bad Bunny’s latest studio album El Último Tour del Mundo, which made history on the Billboard 200 in its debut week.

The video was fittingly released on Valentine’s Day.

Selena Gomez to Release First-Ever Spanish-Language EP in March

Selena Gomez is switching tongues in a big way…

The 28-year-old Mexican American singer/actress has officially announced plans to release her first-ever Spanish-language EP is set on March 12.

Selena Gomez

Titled Revelación, the album will follow Gomez’s singles “De Una Vez,” which arrived on January 16, and the Rauw Alejandro-assisted “Baila Conmigo,” which will be released on Friday, January 29.

“Revelación, my first ever Spanish EP, is out March 12,” the singer tweeted to her over 60 million followers. “Preorder it tomorrow at 9am PT.”

News of the EP comes a day after Gomez announced the Tainy-produced “Baila Conmigo.” She shared a photo on social media that shows Selena rocking her shoulder-length hair, a fitted dress with a red-orange spotlight.

Earlier this month, the multi-hyphenate dropped “De Una Vez,” her first Spanish single in a decade, produced by Tainy, Albert Hype, Jota Rosa, and Neon16. In the song, Gomez opens up about healing from a previous relationship and discovering her self-worth.

The rhythmic pop tune scored Gomez her second top five on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart as “De Una Vez” debuts at No. 4 on the January 30 survey, which arrives two years since her first No. 1: DJ Snake’s bilingual “Taki Taki,” which also features Ozuna and Cardi B.

 

Selena Gomez Earns Second Top Five Single on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs Chart with “De Una Vez”

Selena Gomez is makin’ a salpicadura on the Latin charts…

The 28-year-old Mexican American singer has clocked her second top five on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart as “De Una Vez” debuts at No. 4 on the January 30 survey.

Selena Gomez

Gomez’s all Spanish-language song arrives a little more than two years since her first No. 1 on the chart: Her featured role on DJ Snake’s bilingual “Taki Taki,” which also features Ozuna and Cardi B, reigned for 13 weeks starting on the chart dated October 13, 2018.

“De Una Vez” was released January 14 and bows at No. 4 on the all-metric list mainly powered by streaming activity and digital sales. It starts with 5.6 million U.S. streams earned in the week ending Jan. 21, according to MRC Data, propelling a No. 5 debut on Latin Streaming Sales.

The rhythmic pop track, which was produced by Tainy, Albert Hype, Jota Rosa and Neon16, concurrently registers 5,000 downloads, and it sits at No. 1 for a second week on the Latin Digital Song Sales tally (after debuting a week earlier from one day of sales activity in the week ending January 14). It starts at No. 14 on the all-genre Digital Song Sales chart.

Gomez is just the seventh female act to debut in the top five on Hot Latin Songs in the last three years. Out of all, Cardi B, Karol G, Rosalía and now herself have snatched two top five debuts. Let’s take a look at all the titles:

Song, Artists, Year, Debut Position
“La Modelo,” Ozuna & Cardi B, 2018, No. 3
“Taki Taki,” DJ Snake Featuring Selena Gomez, Ozuna & Cardi B, 2018, No. 1
“China,” Anuel AA, Daddy Yankee, Karol G, Ozuna & J Balvin, Aug. 2019, No. 2
“Tusa,” Karol G & Nicki Minaj, 2019, No. 1
“TKN,” Rosalía & Travis Scott, 2019, No. 2
“Un Día (One Day),” J Balvin, Dua Lipa, Bad Bunny & Tainy, 2020, No. 1
“Me Gusta,” Anitta Featuring Cardi B & Myke Towers, 2020, No. 5
“La Noche De Anoche,” Bad Bunny & Rosalía, 2020, No. 2
“De Una Vez,” Selena Gomez, 2020, No. 5.

 

On the overall Billboard Hot 100 chart, “De Una Vez” starts at No. 92. The track also launches at No. 40 on the Billboard Global 200 and No. 36 on the Billboard Global 200 Excluding U.S. charts.

Rosalia Teams Up with Billie Eilish for Haunting New Bilingual Track “Lo Vas a Olvidar”

Rosalia’s highly anticipated collaboration with Billie Eilish is an unforgettable feat…

The 27-year-old Spanish singer-songwriter released “Lo Vas a Olvidar” on Friday, featuring Eilish singing in Spanish.

Rosalia x Billie Eilish

With dreamlike, almost hazy melodies, the slow-tempo, bilingual song brings to the forefront Eilish and Rosalia’s vocal chemistry and enchanting harmonies.

“Dime si me echas de meno’ aún,” Rosalia kicks off. “Dime si no me perdonas aún,” continues Eilish.

The two artists go back and forth on the melancholic lyrics before Eilish closes off with a thought-provoking verse in English: “If I wasn’t important, then why would you waste all your poison?”

The official music video, filmed by award-winning director Nabil, shows the two artists’ powerful performances in a somber setting.

The video has already garnered more than 20 million views since its release.

Rosalia to Release Billie Eilish Collaboration “Lo Vas a Olvidar” This Week

Rosalia isn’t forgetting her promised high-profile collaboration…

After teasing a collaboration for more than a year, the 27-year-old Spanish singer and Billie Eilish have officially announced that their new song together, titled “Lo Vas a Olvidar,” is coming out on Thursday, January 21.

Rosalia, MAC Cosmetics, MAC Viva Glam 26

“You guys have been waiting for this,” Eilish captioned her post on social media, which includes a sneak peek of the music video for the song.

“Lo Vas a Olvidar” will be part of HBO hit Euphorias “Part Two: Jules’” soundtrack. The episode’s teaser on social media features a preview of the track.

Fans have been waiting for this dream collaboration ever since the Rosalia tweeted back in March 2019, “can’t wait to finish our song” along with a photo of the pair.

Then in April, Rosalía said in an interview with Apple Music‘s Zane Lowe that she had been working on finishing the song in her “little” studio: “I have been trying to finish the Billie Eilish collab. I think it’s getting quite close.”

“La Vas a Olvidar” is set to drop at 12:00 pm ET along with a music video.
