New Video Released for Gabriel’s 1982 Classic “Si quieres”

Juan Gabriel’s classic is getting an update…

Just weeks after the Mexican singer-songwriter’s unexpected death on August 28, a new video for JuanGa’s 1982 classic “Si quieres” was released over the weekend.

The clip combines images of an orchestra being conducted by Eduardo Magallanes and the Divo de Juárez recording the song in a studio, which he recorded days before he died at the age of 66.

At the end of the video, the ballad becomes a festive tune with all 35 musicians up and dancing.

“Si quieres” forms part of Gabriel’s final album Vestido De Etiqueta: Por Eduardo Magallanes, which reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart for two-consecutive weeks before his death.

Gabriel’s Final Album Remains No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums Chart

Juan Gabriel’s legacy lives on…

The newest album by the late Mexican singer, Vestido De Etiqueta: Por Eduardo Magallanes, has logged a second week at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart (dated Sept. 10).

The latest chart reflects sales data for the week ending August 25 — three days before Gabriel died. He passed away two days after a sold-out show and hours before he was set to perform a concert in El Paso, Texas.

It’s expected that the Latin American music legend will remain at the top of the list in the coming weeks, as the chart experiences the initial impact from his passing.

In the week ending August 25, Vestido De Etiqueta: Por Eduardo Magallanes sold 2,000 copies (up 28 percent).

Elsewhere, his former No. 1 Los Duo 2 climbs 8-5 with an 18 percent increase in sales (to 1,000 copies), reaching its best peak since the July 9-dated list when it ranked at No. 4. The set had previously crowned the chart for seven straight weeks (after debuting on the Jan. 2 tally).

Sales of his albums in the latest tracking week may have been spurred, in part, by Gabriel’s MeXXico Es Todo tour, which kicked off August 19. The singer played his last show at the Los Angles Forum on Friday, August 26.

Any uptick in album sales after Gabriel’s death, as well as track downloads and streaming, will be reflected on the September 17-dated charts which tracks activity from August 26 through September 1.

Gabriel, who began his career in the early 1970s, placed a total of 31 albums on the chart since its inception in 1993.

He is among just three solo acts to place as many titles on the chart, coming in just after Joan Sebastian (with 32 charted albums) and Vicente Fernandez (36).

Gabriel Notches Fifth Chart-Topper on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums Chart

Make that five chart-toppers for Juan Gabriel

The 66-year-old Mexican singer has reached the summit on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart for a fifth time on the chart dated September 3, as Vestido de Etiqueta: Por Eduardo Magallanes, debuts with 1,000 copies sold in the week ending August 18, according to Nielsen Music.

The chart-topper continues Gabriel’s hot streak on the Top Latin Albums chart, where he’s notched four No. 1s in the last 18 months — more leaders than any other artist in that span of time.

It’s actually double the next-largest total in that span.

Four acts each earned two No. 1s in the last year-and-a-half: Banda Sinaloense MS de Sergio Lizarraga, Gloria Trevi, Julion Alvarez y Su Norteno Banda and La Maquinaria Nortena.

The new No. 1 follows two chart-topping duets sets, Los Duo 2 (No. 1 for seven weeks in 2016) and Los Duo (No. 1 for seven weeks in 2015), and a greatest-hits compilation Mis Numero 1… 40 Aniversario (No. 1 for one week in 2015).

Vestido consists of a selection of Gabriel’s hits re-recorded and re-arranged with a symphonic orchestra by composer and musical director Eduardo Magallanes. The longtime collaborator of Gabriel signed the superstar to RCA Victor in 1971.
