Bachata Group Aventura Is Outselling Post Malone in U.S. Ticket Sales
Aventura’s reunion tour is doing very well in the U.S., further proving that the influence of Latin music in America is stronger than ever. The Romeo Santos-fronted group, which experienced stratospheric success in the early 2000s with the global bachata hit “Obsesión,” is now back on the road for the first time in 10 years.
The group just debuted at Number Three on Pollstar’s LIVE75 Chart — a list that ranks worldwide active tours by the average tickets sold — for the week of March 2nd. Based on six sold-out shows in markets that include Chicago and Houston, the band is raking in an average of $1.84 million per gig. Based on five shows, the average gross is higher than modern superstar Post Malone’s current number of $1.74 million. The only tour that’s currently pulling in a greater per-show gross, according to Pollstar’s chart figures, belongs to rock legacy band the Eagles.
Pop Is Crushing Hip-Hop in 2019, According to Hit Song Study
The number of new hip-hop songs reaching the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 is dropping dramatically in 2019 as opposed to last year, according to “The State of the Hot 100 Top Ten,” a quarterly analysis of the compositional and industry trends issued by analysts Hit Songs Deconstructed.
While the study looks at just one element of the charts and year-to-year trends will be clearer in the full 2019 report, the drop in hip-hop is striking: Of the second quarter’s 15 new arrivals in the Top 10, just 34% were hip-hop as opposed to 60% last year — a drop of some 26% — while the percentage of pop new arrivals more than doubled to 49% from 23%. R&B/soul remained at 11% while other genres were 3% or below. The arrival of two new songs from Taylor Swift and one each from BTS and Ava Max certainly strengthened the pop category in Q2, although two new songs each from Drake and Khalid bolstered hip-hop and R&B, respectively.
the musical genre is dead, gen z killed it
The rise of streaming services and Gen Z acts like Lil Nas X and Billie Eilish are heralding the end of emo, rap, and country as we know them. And bringing in something better.
