Rvssian creates Billboard Latin charts history
Jamaican producer Rvssian has created history on the Billboard Latin charts. His production of the Sunset, by Puerto Rican singer Farruko, featuring Shaggy and Nicky Jam, is number one on the Latin Airplay chart.
This is the first time that a Jamaican producer, has topped any of Billboard's Latin charts.
Sunset is also doing well on other Billboard charts. It is Number three on the Hot Latin Songs chart; Number Seven on the Latin Digital Songs chart; and Number two on the Latin Pop Songs chart.
"I feel great! It shows that hard work and good music pays off and it's a good look for Jamaica as well. Shaggy and I are both Jamaicans and the rhythm is authentic dancehall," said Rvssian.
"It definitely has been opening doors for me to a larger audience who were not familiar with me. It has also put me in touch with established artistes and companies."
Rvssian, is known for his dancehall projects. He has done work with acts such as Vybz Kartel (both collaborated on the hits Jeans and Fitted, New Jordans, and Look Pon We), J Capri, Konshens, among others.
His hits as a producer also include Strange Face and Hello Bad Mind by Chan Dizzy and Life Sweet by Vybz Kartel, among others.
Sunset is featured on Farruko's latest album, Visionary which was released on Monday. It is currently number one on the US iTunes Latin album chart.
Last year, Rvssian produced Farruko's hit, Passion Whine featuring Sean Paul. It was a Top ten hit on the Latin Songs chart.
