Top 10 Latin Albums, February 2013
by Rachel Devitt | February 6, 2013
Another month, another slew of hot new albums to warm up your February, Latin fans! We’ve rounded up the 10 latest and greatest releases from the last month or two, and we wound up with an interesting and sometimes surprising list. Such as?
Well, regional artists apparently don’t believe in taking time off for the holidays or the new year: On the list are exciting new releases from Noel Torres (our top pick), Voz de Mando, La Original Banda El Limón de Salvador Lizárraga and, of course, the late, great Jenni Rivera, who finished a compilation of some of her best songs (including one new tune!) just before she died. Also up are some newcomers we think you’ll enjoy, including Idol Puerto Rico winner Gremal Maldonado, Afrobeat-meets-Latin funkster Chico Mann (of Antibalas) and sertanejo pop star Alex Ferrari. Finally, we’ve got one not-exactly-new album on there that we just couldn’t leave off: Jesse y Joy jam-packed the deluxe version of last year's ¿Con Quien Se Queda El Perro? with a whopping six new tracks, which is practically a new album in and of itself.
