"Juntos" #1 at Billboard: Performed by Juanes, co-written by SESAC Affiliate Fonseca
"Juntos" is included in the Disney feature film McFarland USA
Co-written by the SESAC Latina-affiliated artist Fonseca and performed by Juanes, the song "Juntos" (Together), included in the Disney feature film McFarland USA, has hit No. 1 on the Billboard Latin Airplay and Latin Pop charts.
With this accomplishment, "Juntos" joins a string of chart-toppers from the SESAC Latina repertoire. Among them: "Contigo" (With You), performed by Calibre 50, on the Regional Mexican charts, and "El Perdón" (Forgiveness), performed by Nicky Jam and Enrique Iglesias, on Billboard's Hot Latin Songs and other charts.
Universal Music reports that this song has also reached No. 1 in Colombia (nine consecutive weeks), Mexico, Venezuela, Ecuador and Central America. It's gone Top 10 in Spain, Argentina and Chile. Released by Walt Disney/Universal Music Latino | UMLE, the airplay dominance of "Juntos" on Billboard is credited to its high number of plays and massive audience reach in the United States and Puerto Rico, as tabulated by the automated airplay monitoring system Nielsen BDS. "Juntos" reaches No. 1 in just its 10th week on the chart, published in the April 18-24, 2015, issue of Billboard.
This song's positive message complements the story of the feature film McFarland USA, starring Kevin Costner. The lyrics compare life to a path and "an open book," making it clear from the start that when we walk "juntos" (together), "there's nothing that we can't" accomplish.
