Sebastián Yatra is two-for-two…
The 24-year-old Colombian singer-songwriter’s sophomore album Fantasia debuts atop the Billboard Latin Pop Albums chart dated April 27, following his debut set Mantra to the top of the chart.
His sophomore set Fantasia launches at No. 1 with 5,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending April 18, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 3,000 were in album sales. Both figures mark the best weeks of his career, in terms of album sales and equivalent album units.
The LP concurrently debuts at No. 5 on the Top Latin Albums chart, his second entry, following the No. 3 debut and peak of Mantra.
Yatra scored his first Latin Pop Albums leader less than a year ago, when his debut set Mantra opened at No. 1 on June 2. The album also opened at No. 3 on Top Latin Albums and even reached the all-encompassing Billboard 200, at No. 192.
Yatra’s Fantasia is just the third album to be No. 1 on Latin Pop Albums in 2019 so far. Selena’s Ones ruled for the first six weeks of the year (of the set’s total 24 weeks at No. 1), followed by Luis Fonsi’s Vida for 10 weeks.
