Even though Marc Anthony still has the most popular song and the most popular album in the country, this week's biggest news is the return to the charts of the Bachata face-off between Prince Royce and Romeo Santos. Perhaps, the Hot Latin Songs chart is the ranking that better describes this situation with Marc Anthony's "Vivir Mi Vida" on top, followed by Prince Royce's "Darte Un Beso" (at #2) and Romeo Santos' "Propuesta Indecente" (at #3).

In terms of albums, two recently released productions have debuted in a solid way: Trankazos de Verano: 2013, a compilation album featuring hits from top Regional Mexican music artists such as Voz De Mando, Banda El Recodo, Calibre 50 and Joan Sebastian, and Olga Tañon's latest album Una Mujer. While the former is at number 4 on the Top Latin Albums chart, the latter has reached the number three position on the Tropical Albums list. Let's see what happened this week.

Somehow, seeing Marc Anthony at number one on this list is not longer the news.
