Marco Antonio Solis
Released: Mar 2006
This 1997 release established Marco Antonio Solis as a solo artist after he left Mexican supergroup Los Bukis. "La Venia Bendita" spent an unimaginable 25 weeks at the top of the charts, proving the guy not only had pop but also ranchera chops in the process. Solis also wasn't shy about taking on social issues: witness the deceptively upbeat-sounding "Casas De Carton."
