Jamaican producer Rvssian last made headlines when Passion Whine, a song produced by him, was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for sales of over one million copies.

It was the lead single from Puerto Rican singer Farruko's album, Farruko Presenta: Los Menores, and featured Jamaican act Sean Paul. It peaked at

No. 10 on the Billboard Latin Songs Chart. With just over a year elapsing since that achievement, the producer is again in the spotlight after another single he has worked on climbed into the top five on the Billboard charts. Again, the singer achieved the feat with a Farruko collaboration.

The song, Sunset, is currently No. 2 on the Billboard's Hot Latin Songs Chart. The song features Shaggy and Nicky Jam and has been moving up the charts in its 11-week stint.

Released in June by Sony Music Entertainment, Sunset is from Farruko's upcoming album, Visionary, set to be released on October 23. A remix of OMI's Cheerleader featuring Nicky Jam is also on the Hot Latin Songs Chart. It currently sits at No. 8 after spending 18 weeks on the chart.

Meanwhile, on the Billboard Hot 100, OMI's Cheerleader has fallen to No. 13, while Major Lazer's Powerful, featuring Tarrus Riley, has moved up to No. 84. On the Billboard 200 albums chart, Janet Jackson holds the No. 1 spot with her new album, Unbreakable.

Where the Billboard reggae chart is concerned, VP Records continues to hold down the No. 1 spot, holding off stiff competition from Matisyahu's recent album, Live at Stubbs, Vol. III, which was forced to settle for No. 2.
