Juanes MTV UnpluggedJuanes is the host of Sirius XM Radio’s exclusive monthly show, Juanes: Fijate Bien, satellite radio’s first artist-hosted show for bilingual listeners. Juanes latest album release, Juanes MTV Unplugged, debuted at #1 on the “Top Latin Albums” chart, as well as in 18 countries throughout Latin America.
