Myke Towersis celebrating a special first…
The 26-year-old Puerto Rican rapper, singer and composer has earned his first leader on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart as Easy Money Baby debuts at No. 1 on the chart dated February 10.
It’s Towers’ first appearance on any Billboard Albums chart, as it concurrently debuts atop the Latin Rhythm Albums chart.
His sophomore full-length album arrives atop the chart with 12,000 equivalent album units accrued in the week ending January 30, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
“This is a giant step in this new phase of my career,” Towers tells Billboard. “This is an album in which I gave it all for my fans who have long expected this release. The first time is always special and to debut at No. 1 not only on the Latin Rhythm Albums chart but on the overall Top Latin Albums chart is a dream come true!”
Top Latin Albums ranks the most popular Latin albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units comprise traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).
The bulk of EasyMoney’s opening sum is attributed to streaming activity. The 18-track effort registered a little over 11,000 in SEA units, which equates to 15.1 million on-demand streams for the set’s tracks.
The new father, who shares the album’s cover with his infant son, debuts at No. 1 in his first chart visit. Towers becomes the rare act to grab a chart leader in its first try since Bad Bunny secured his first No. 1 on Top Latin Albums with X 100Pre (January 5, 2019).
