Miami, FL (Friday, September 19, 2014) – PLAN B, reaffirms its popularity with the successful release of its latest album, “LOVE & SEX.” Today, the long awaited production not only holds the #1 spot on the urban music physical sales chart according to Nielsen SoundScan, but also reigns on the “Latin Urban Albums” chart of the digital music platform, iTunes.
Billboard magazine also celebrates this great release highlighting it as a “Hot Shot Debut,” occupying the #2 position of the Top Latin Albums list. In addition, for the first time ever, the duo enters the Top 10 of the Rap chart (# 8), making history for Latin music. The Rap chart has historically been comprised of American music productions such as Iggy Azalea, Whiz Khalifa, Eminem and Drake, which are some of the charting albums this week.
The duo also announced the date of November 14 as the historic night in which they will present a concert for all ages at the ‘Coliseo Jose Miguel Agrelot of Puerto Rico.’ There is no doubt that it will be a sold-out event and that it will prevail over other urban concerts presented in the legendary venue, as it comes from the mastermind of Raphy Pina, the entrepreneur and President of the most successful independent record label of the genre, and who was recently recognized by the Coliseum for presenting the most urban concerts in the last 10 years.
In addition to dominating the urban music sales lists, the album takes over the #2 spot on SoundScan’s general chart, showing that the duo remains at the forefront of the genre. Plan B continues its promotional tour through major Hispanic US markets; after completing in-store appearances in Puerto Rico, the duo now heads to New York, Washington and Los Angeles. Chencho and Maldy will visit Latin America as well, where the album also premiered on a high note.
“Having the best-selling urban album in the nation assures us that it is a hit and that we’re giving fans exactly what they want to hear. Beyond that, we are excited to see
how our fans choose different songs as their favorites, showing us that we have a very complete album that boasts a wide variety of musical hits”- commented Chencho and Maldy on this well-deserved achievement.
At the same time, the promotional single “Mi Vecinita” continues enjoying high popularity and demand, as it currently hold a Top 15 position on Billboard’s “Tropical Airplay” chart and Top 50 on the “Hot Latin Songs” chart. Meanwhile, the music video has surpassed 700,000 views on Vevo in just 9 days. As a gift to their fans, Plan B will make available starting today a set of lyric videos for each track on the album, each customized to the story of the song and with different creative concepts.
