The singer is Spotify’s most-streamed artist in 2020 according to the platform’s yearly round-up. Last year Bad Bunny was the fifth most-streamed artist in the world so this was definitely a bigger and better year for San Benito.

“YHLQMDLG” is Bad Bunny’s second studio album and it has been a quantifiable success. The album reached No. 1 in the U.S. on the Independent Albums Billboard, Top Latin Albums Billboard, and Latin Rhythm Albums Billboard charts.

Last year, Camila Cabello represented for the Latinas. The Cuban-Mexican-American pop star was all over the Spotify charts. Namely, Cabello was the fourth most-streamed female artist and “Señorita,” her collab with Shawn Mendes, was the most streamed song on Spotify for 2019.

Bad Bunny kept himself super relevant while in quarantine because his social media game is strong.

Bad Bunny kept his music coming while in quarantine. The Puerto Rican super star kept making things happen. He even created a quarantine anthem that he recorded with his significant other. Who could forget when “En Casita” hit Soundcloud? It was Bad Bunny’s way fo make quarantine worth it and trying to make sure that everyone did what they need to do to get past this pandemic.

Latin music’s popularity is growing fast around the world.

Artists like Bad Bunny, Karol G, and J Balvin are taking the Latin sounds and taking them international. More and more people are tuning in to the songs that make our own communities bump. With the way things are going, Latin music’s world takeover is not going to stop anytime soon.

Bad Bunny’s El Último Tour Del Mundo isn’t until next year, but he already has the best-selling post-pandemic tour. The Puerto Rican superstar is breaking records with his sell-out tour in the U.S.

Bad Bunny announced the surprise tour during Wrestlemania.

During his WWE Wrestlemania debut earlier this month, Bad Bunny announced the tour dates for his El Último Tour Del Mundo 2022. The tour will kick off in Denver in February 2022 and later wrap up in Miami that April. Benito was trending on Twitter the night of the announcement, showing just how in-demand the tickets were.

The tour tickets that went on sale last week sold like hotcakes.

The pre-sale tickets for the tour named after his 2020 hit album went on sale last Thursday. From peeping the websites like Ticketmaster and AXS, it was apparent how fast the tickets were selling. To keep up the with demand, Bad Bunny added second and third dates to many of the major cities like L.A., Chicago, New York, Orlando, and Miami.

Bad Bunny broke many records with his hotly-anticipated tour.

All the tickets, including the shows that were added, were gone as soon as they were available. This week Ticketmaster certified the records that Bad Bunny broke with his wildly-selling tour. Thursday’s pre-sale tickets claim the record for the top ticket sales in a day of any tour since 2018.

“One thing is clear: the world wants to see Bad Bunny live on stage,” said Mark Yovich, President of Ticketmaster, in a statement. “The demand for his tour has smashed multiple records, with one of the most active onsale periods in Ticketmaster’s history. Ticketmaster is honored to get fans one step closer to live with tickets to see this global breakthrough artist.”

Bad Bunny also holds the record for the highest-selling post-pandemic tour. He’s expected to perform the hits from his albums that dropped last year: YHLQMDLG, Las Que No Iban a Salir, and El Último Tour Del Mundo. Last week, Benito won five Latin American Music Awards, including Artist of the Year.

Welcome to Spotlight, where we do a deep dive into the careers of artists, producers, songwriters, and more people making an impact in the Latin music industry.

Puerto Rican singer Chesca is the definition of a hustler. She started as the vocalist for her dad’s cover band in Puerto Rico and became her own manager booking shows in places like China and Greece. The world is hers for the taking and she is going for it.

Chesca is ready for global stardom and she’s taking it one step at a time.

During our interview here at Latido Music by mitú, Chesca opened up about how a tragic accident at 11 years old changed her life, how music literally saved her, and the sacrifices she’s had to make to be where she is today.

Watch the full interview below:

Chesca is aware that being a Latina in the music industry isn’t easy but feels compelled to share her story and everything she’s had to do to get here. She would pretend to be her own manager and publicist at the beginning of her career. Chesca would book herself shows around the world where she would get to perform her own original songs. One of her songs actually got picked up by the radio in China, which is a market not many Latin stars even imagine entering, especially not when they’re just starting their careers.

“With everything that I’ve been through, I have a voice, and I have a story to tell that can motivate so many young women, that’s what keeps me going,” Chesca says.

While she had some success performing in English, she felt that she needed to go back to her roots and start doing music in Spanish. The stars aligned, and Chesca was signed by Saban Music Group, and currently has some high-profile collaborations under her belt. She’s behind the viral hit like “Te Quiero Baby (I Love You Baby),” which blew up on TikTok and led her to perform at the Latin Billboards last year with Pitbull.

Chesca most recently performed at the 2021 Latin AMAs red carpet and received a nomination for Best New Latin Artist at the 2021 iHeart Radio Music Awards.

After our conversation with Chesca, it’s clear that she’s making the right moves at the right time to make a name for herself in the industry, and we can’t wait to see what’s next for her career.
