Justino says:

Luis Miguel’s Mexico Por Siempre album recently debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Regional Mexican Albums chart. The WEA Latina album is the singer's first studio project in seven years and his 20th studio album. Known as El Sol de Mexico (The Sun of Mexico), the crooner has multiple Grammys and Latin Grammys to his name and continues to entice fans with a reimagining of classic Mexican songs. 

This is his second mariachi-themed album, and the 14 tracks stand out for their musical homage to Mexico. 

The Puerto Rican-born entertainer, who has called Mexico his home most of his life, has been performing most of his life to fans around the world. His tours have done exceptionally well through the years. 

Artist:  El Dasa

Album: El Hijo Del Desierto (Son of the Desert)

“El Hijo Del Desierto”

Justino says:

Ironically, modern banda singer El Dasa’s character on the Netflix show “El Vato” is that of a musician who is struggling to succeed in the Los Angeles music scene. But in real life, the young crooner is conquering regional Mexican music. 

His new album introduces 16 tracks that show El Dasa’s talent and style, from performing some fast-paced romantic corridos to tender ballads. 

El Dasa recently scored his second top 10 placement on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart from this third studio album released through Fonovisa and Universal Music Latino.
