Bad Bunny’s “Los Que No Iban a Salir” Headed for No. 1 Debut on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums Chart

Bad Bunny  could be his own usurpador

The 26-year-old Puerto Rican Latin trap and reggaeton singer is looking to replace himself at No. 1, again, on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart. 

Bad Bunny

Bad Bunny’s surprise release Las Que No Iban a Salircould register more than 40,000 equivalent album units in the week ending May 14, according to industry forecasters. 

If it starts as projected, the new album (LQNIAS) will bump his own YHLQMDLGfrom the top spot on the tally next week, where it’s held the pole position for 10 straight weeks since its debut at No. 1 on the chart dated March 14.

The Top Latin Albums chart ranks the most popular Latin albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which comprises traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). 

Las Que No Iban a Salirdropped without warning in the mid-afternoon on Sunday, May 10, so it will only have about four-and-a-half days of activity before the tracking week’s end on May 14. (Most new releases tend to drop on Friday each week, the first day of the tracking week. Bad Bunny has bucked this trend repeatedly with his earlier albums, opting to release them at varying times of the week.)

Assuming Las Que No Iban a Salir starts at No. 1 on Top Latin Albums, it will replace Bad Bunny’s own YHLQMDLG at the top. 

It would not the first time Bad Bunny has replaced himself at No. 1. WhenYHLQMDLG debuted at No. 1, it bumped X 100PRE from the top. And, whenJ Balvin and Bad Bunny teamed up for the Oasis collaborative album, it opened at No. 1 on July 13, 2019, replacing X 100PRE.

Bad Bunny’s new 10-track album is effectively a compilation of previously unfinished songs. 

The set includes, amusingly, simple-named songs like “Canción Con Yandel” with Yandel, and “Bad Con Nicky” with Nicky Jam.

Most of the first-week activity for Bad Bunny’s album will come via streaming services. (There are no merchandise/album bundles in play as of May 12.) The album has proven to be so popular out of the gate with streamers, that, according to Apple Music, it became the first Latin album to reach the top of Apple Music’s Top Albums tally. Apple Music’s Top Albums ranking ranks the most streamed albums within the service at any given point in time.

Bad Bunny’s “YHLQMDLG” Headed to Historic Debut on Billboard 200

Bad Bunny is ready to make history…

The 25-year-old Latin trap and reggaeton singer is heading for a historic debut on the Billboard 200 chart with his new album YHLQMDLG.

Bad Bunny

Forecasters believe the set, which was released late in the evening on February 28 via Rimas, could debut at No. 2 on next week’s Billboard 200 chart and earn between 125,000 and 145,000 equivalent album units in the week ending March 5. 

That would mark the biggest week for a Latin album, in units earned, since Billboard began tracking titles by equivalent album units in December 2014.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The top 10 of the March 14-dated Billboard 200 chart (where YHLQMDLGcould debut at No. 2) is scheduled to be revealed via Billboard’s website on Sunday, March 8.

Most of YHLQMDLG’s starting sum will be powered by streaming activity, with perhaps as much as 25,000 generated by album sales. Bad Bunny’s YHLQMDLG is profiting from merchandise/album bundle offers sold through his official webstore.

Further,YHLQMDLG will likely land the biggest streaming week ever for a Latin album, surpassing the record set by Ozuna’s Aura, which bowed with 53.2 million on-demand audio streams, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data (chart dated Sept. 8, 2018).

Bad Bunny has charted two previous albums on the Billboard 200: Oasis (with J Balvin, No. 9) and X 100PRE (No. 11), both in 2019.

J Balvin & Bad Bunny’s “Que Pretendes” Reaches No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay Chart

It’s J Balvin’s quinceañera on the charts…

The 34-year-oldColombian reggaeton singerhas nabbed his 15th No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart with his collaboration with Bad Bunny, “Que Pretendes.”

J Balvin & Bad Bunny

J Balvin and Bad Bunny’s singerlifts 2-1 on the chart dated August 10. 

It’s the first single off their collaborative eight-track album, Oasis (released June 28), advances with 13.8 million audience impressions (up 35%) earned in the week ending August 4, according to Nielsen Music.

J Balvin breaks away from a four-way tie with Carlos VivesShakira, and Wisin who have each claimed 14 No. 1s thus far. J Balvin now places as the act with the third-most leaders in the chart’s history which began in 1994. Bad Bunny, meanwhile, claims his sixth.

Beyond the “Que Pretendes” coronation, each act has nabbed two other No. 1s in 2019. J Balvin claimed his first No. 1 of the year when “Reggaeton” hit the top in its 13th week (chart dated April 6). His collaboration on Ozuna’s remix, “Baila Baila Baila,” alongside Daddy YankeeFarruko and Anuel AA, secured a spot atop the list just a little over a month after.

Bad Bunny’s “Soltera,” with Lunayand Daddy Yankee arrived at No. 1 on the July 13-dated tally (a two-week reign), while “Callaita,” with compatriot producer Tainy, landed at the summit last week (Aug. 3-dated list).

Bad Bunny Breaks Record for Most Songs in the Top 10 at the Same Time on Billboard’s Hot Latin Song​s Chart

Bad Bunnyis ruling the singles charts…

The 25-year-old Puerto Rican Latin trap and reggaeton singer has landed six songs concurrently in the top 10 of Billboard’s Hot Latin Song​s chart, setting a new record for the most songs by an artist in the top 10 at the same time.

Bad Bunny

On the chart — which blends airplay, sales and streaming data to rank to the most popular Latin songs of the week — all eight of Bad Bunny’s Oasis’ songs, his No. 1 joint album with J Balvin, debut on the list dated July 13.

The Oasis parade is led by “Qué Pretendes,” which debuts at No. 2. Another Oasis track, “La Cancion,” bows within the top 10, at No. 10.

So, that’s two Bad Bunny cuts in the top 10, which joins four other Bad Bunny songs already in the region, at No. 3 (“Callaita,” with Tainy), No. 4 (“MIA,” featuring Drake), No. 5 (“Soltera,” with Lunayand Daddy Yankee) and No. 8 (“No Me Conoce,” with Jhay Cortezand J Balvin).

With that, Bad Bunny notches his six songs concurrently in the top 10. The previous record was four, held by six acts (Bad Bunny, OzunaAnuel AAJoan SebastianRomeo Santosand Wisin & Yandel).

Further, Bad Bunny sets another record: He’s the first act with four songs in the top five at the same time, as he holds Nos. 2-5.  

J Balvin & Bad Bunny’s Joint Album “Oasis” Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums Chart

J Balvin has another No. 1 hit album on his hands…

The 34-year-old Colombian reggaeton singerand Bad Bunny’s joint album Oasis opens at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart dated July 13, scoring the biggest streaming debut for a Latin album released in 2019. 

J Balvin & Bad Bunny

The eight-song set earned 36,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending July 4, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 5,000 were in album sales.

The Top Latin Albums chart 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 are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).

Of Oasis’ overall start of 36,000 units, the set generated almost 30,000 SEA units. That latter sum equates to 39.3 million on-demand audio streams for its songs in the week ending July 4 — marking the biggest streaming debut for a Latin album released in 2019.

Oasis marks the third No. 1 for J Balvin, and the second for Bad Bunny. The latter actually replaces himself at No. 1, as Oasis bumps X 100PRE from the top slot, pushing it to No. 2.

Oasis is the first collaborative No. 1 on the Top Latin Albums chart in almost exactly two years. The last joint effort to lead the list came on July 22, 2017, when Gloria Trevi and Alejandra Guzman’s Versus debuted atop the tally, spending one week at No. 1.

Over on the all-genre Billboard 200 albums chart, Oasis debuts at No. 9. It’s the first top 10 on that list for either J Balvin or Bad Bunny, as the former previously hit No. 15 in 2018 with Vibras, while the latter climbed to No. 11 earlier in 2019 with X 100PRE.
