"CMN being chosen earlier as number three in the world in 2022 was the most important event of the year for the company, a testament to the strength of our music and the entrepreneurial power of Hispanics. I thank Billboard for the new recognition on the 'Billboard 2023 Power 100' list, which drives us to continue working hard for Latino culture," said Cárdenas through a statement shared by his company.
The Latino entrepreneur and his company CMN managed to gross $232.5 million on Bad Bunny's tour and broke the Boxscore record for highest grossing in a month, with $123.7 million.
