Top Latin Albums Chart: Juan Gabriel’s ‘Vestido De Etiqueta’ holds at no.1 for second week
Mexican singer-songwriter Juan Gabriel died on Sunday (Aug28) at 66 of a heart attack, but his album “Vestido De Etiqueta: Por Eduardo Magallanes” is doing well and it’s expected that the Latin superstar will remain atop the list in the coming weeks, as the chart experiences the initial impact from his passing.
So his newest album – which sold 2,000 copies in the 7 days after its release – earns a second week at No. 1 on the Top Latin Albums chart (dated Sept10). The project is Gabriel’s thirty-second studio album and it was released on August 12, 2016.
Gabriel, who began his career in the early 1970s, placed a total of 31 albums on the chart since its inception in 1993. As Billboard makes us notice, 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).
