RIAA 2015 Year-End LATIN Sales & Shipments Data Report | RIAA

Because of Latin music’s importance to the American recorded music industry, the RIAA now lists comprehensive shipment data from the Latin sector. These figures, which are incorporated into the overall U.S. market report, break out the amount of Latin product into the domestic marketplace. Latin music is defined as product 51% or more in the Spanish language.

For the first time, the 2015 data includes revenues from on-demand ad-supported streaming and SoundExchange distributions to music labels, with historical data for 2014 as well.
