It’s a special first for Mon Laferte…
The 35-year-old Chilean singer has earned her first top five-charting set on Billboard’s Latin Pop Albums as her 2017 album La Trenza surges 11-4 in its fifth tracking week.
On the overall Top Latin Albums tally, it vaults 50-12 — the biggest jump on the chart since December.
The set earned 2,000 equivalent album units in the week ending May 17 (up 126 percent), according to Nielsen Music. Most of that sum was driven by traditional album sales (up 167 percent). The title rallies thanks largely to sales generated by an in-store performance and album-signing appearance at Amoeba Music in Los Angeles on May 15.
La Trenza previously topped out at No. 10 on Latin Pop Albums for one week (May. 12).
La Trenza takes a striking 38-rank climb on the Top Latin Albums chart, as the set surges 50-12. It logs the largest positional jump since Puerto Rican Banco Popular’s compilation, Nuestra Isla, Nuestro Encanto surged 40 positions (45-5) on the Dec. 30, 2017- dated tally.
Concurrently, La Trenza leads the Latin Album Sales chart, jumping 7-1.
