There are plenty of good vibes for Eslabon Armado…
The Mexican-American trio’s latest album Vibras de Noche has debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart dated August 1.
Eslabon Armado’s sophomore album becomes the second title by a Regional Mexican act to debut atop the chart in 2020.
Vibras de Noche opens with 23,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending July 23, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
Of the set’s starting count, 1,000 were in album sales and the bulk of the remainder attributed to streams. The set earns 2020’s biggest week for a regional Mexican album in terms of overall units.
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).
“Vibras de Noche is a special project for us,” 18-year-old Pedro Tovar, lead vocalist and composer of the group, tells Billboard. “Production wise, it meant a great effort as it we were super demanding in defining the sound we were looking for. We loved the result, that new zest we are infusing little by little in regional Mexican music.”
In addition to Pedro, the group is also comprised of Brian Tovar and Gabriel Hidalgo.
