Bad Bunny remains the musical artist of the moment…
The 28-year-old Puerto Rican superstar rules the Billboard Artist 100 chart dated October 8 for an eighth week, remaining the top musical act in the U.S. due in large part to his latest album, Un Verano Sin Ti.
El Conejo Malo’s set scores a 12th week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, with 87,000 equivalent album units earned in the September 23-29 tracking week, according to Luminate.
It’s just the fourth album to spend at least 12 weeks at No. 1 on the chart this century, following Adele’s 21 (24 weeks; 2011-12), Drake’s Views (13; 2016) and the Frozen soundtrack (13; 2014).
Bad Bunny concurrently places five songs on the latest Billboard Hot 100 and 13 on the Hot Latin Songs chart from Un Verano Sin Ti.
Here’s a recap of his total on the Hot 100:
