Carlos Vives is back in familiar territory…
The 56-year-old Colombian singer, songwriter and actor’s 10th studio album, Vives, debuts at No. 5 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart (dated December 2), earning the singer his ninth top 10 chart entry.
Vives’ set debuts with 3,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending November 16, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 1,000 were in traditional album sales.
The set earned a little more than 1,000 in streaming equivalent album units — driven by the single “Robarte Un Beso” with Sebastian Yatra. The cut tallied nearly a million on-demand audio streams for the week. Concurrently, the track rises 17-15 on the Hot Latin Songs chart with Greatest Gainer/Digital honors (posting a 152 percent gain in song downloads, rising to 4,000 sold).
The album’s release on November 10, via Sony Music Latin, preceded his live performance of “Robarte Un Beso” at the November 16th Latin Grammy Awards.
Vives last entered the Top Latin Albums chart in 2015 with the live set Más Corazón Profundo Tour: En Vivo, which topped the list for one week.
