Here are this week's notable new releases.
Puerto Rico's Luis Fonsi made quite a splash with his single "No Me Doy Por Vendio". The song was one of 16 tracks on the AT&T Team USA Soundtrack
that was released to honor the 2008 Summer Olympics and while Fonsi was the only Latino that appeared on the album, his was the album's most listened to track. Now here's Fonsi's 7th studio album, hot off the press.
