Christina Aguilera‘s long-awaited Spanish EP, ‘La Fuerza’ (which translates to “the force” in English), is proving itself to be quite the force on the global stage.
Living up to its title in more ways than one, the six-song project – released January 21 – comes over 20 years after the singer dropped her first well-received Spanish-language effort, ‘Mi Reflejo.’
As critical acclaim continues to roll in from some of the industry’s top tastemakers, ‘Fuerza’ has forced its way to the top of real-time global sales tallies – besting the sales performance of some of the world’s hottest musical releases.
After soaring to #1 on the iTunes tallies of Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Italy, Spain, and nearly 15 other countries around the world (as well as the top 10 list of the USA), Christina’s ‘Fuerza’ has landed at #1 on the Worldwide iTunes Album Chart (as of time reported).
The commercial response – in conjunction with a jam-packed week of promo in the days ahead – spells promise for the effort’s premiere on the Billboard 200, slated for the chart issued on January 30.
