Luis Coronel is back in the Top Five…
The 21-year-old Mexican American singer has debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums (dated November 11) with his third studio album, Ahora Soy Yo, opening with 6,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending October 26, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 5,000 were in traditional album sales.
The set is Coronel’s third top five-charting effort, following his last studio set, the chart-topper Quiero Ser Tu Dueño in 2014 (one week at No. 1) and his No. 2-peaking debut Con La Frente En Alto in 2013.
Ahora Soy Yo’s first-week sales were aided by a series of in-store appearances by Coronel and gives the singer the second-best sales frame for a Regional Mexican set this year. It trails only the arrival of Christian Nodal‘s Me Deje Llevar (6,000).
Coronel’s album was led by a pair of top 10 hits on the Regional Mexican Airplay chart: “Dime Qué Se Siente,” which peaked at No. 4 in April, and “Tal Como Eres,” which hit No. 9 in October.
Over on the Regional Mexican Albums chart, Ahora Soy Yo opens at No. 1, giving Coronel his third straight chart topper, following his first two releases.
