Latin's Top 10 (Plus One), Spring 2012
The subtitle of this edition of the Latin Roundup -- where we count down the top albums of the last couple months -- ought to be "Big Dogs and Oddballs," or maybe "Ballers and Underdogs," or ... well, something with dogs and balls, anyway. The point is, half of this spring's top 10 albums include some of the game's biggest players and most beloved heavyweights: Prince Royce, Don Omar, Ednita Nazario, Vicente Fernandez, even a certain beloved icon named Selena. But the other half hail from the other end of the spectrum: up-and-comers like El Bebeto (last seen guesting on 3BallMTY's smash "Inténtalo") and Tribal Factory Monterrey (also part of 3Ball's universe), and alt-leaning acts like Sistema Bomb, who electro-funk up traditional music. In fact, there was so much good stuff, we had to crank this Top 10 up to 11. Enjoy!
