Eritmo.Com | Puerto Rico 10/25/2000
Not Ricky Martin. Not Luis Miguel. Not Enrique Iglesias. It is Puerto
Rican Chayanne who reigns in Spain as the most popular Latin artist, according
to a survey conduced by ¡Hola! magazine among its readers.
The survey, which drew 2,261 votes through the magazine's web site, showed
that Chayanne has been stealing many hearts in Spain since the release
of his album, Atado a Tu Amor. His dance tune Salomé is a smashing hit
in the European country.
With the release of his new album, Simplemente, Chayanne won an overwhelming
52.9% of the votes, which positioned him way above Luis Miguel, who got
22.8%. A third place went to Ricky Martin with 10.4%; Martin was followed
by veteran Julio Iglesias with 7.4%. Interestingly, Enrique Iglesias came
in last with just 6.5% of the votes.
Chayanne has been nominated for an Amigo award as Best Latin Male Artist.
The Amigo awards ceremony will take place at the Palacio de Congresos
in Madrid November 13. The show will feature Christina Aguilera, U2, Backstreet
Boys, and Alejandro Sanz. Chayanne is competing in the same category with
Enrique Iglesias and Colombian Carlos Vives. With such a high popularity
index for Chayanne, guessing who the winner will be shouldn't be a difficult
