Bad Bunny is still perfect.
The 29-year-old Puerto Rican Grammy-winning rapper collects his eighth total and consecutive No. 1, in as many tries, on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart as Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana debuts at No. 1 on the October 28-dated ranking.
Bad Bunny’s fifth studio album concurrently debuts at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200, where it becomes the fourth all-Spanish-language set to lead the chart, as well as the Latin Rhythm Albums charts.
A return to Bad Bunny’s trap origins, Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana starts with 184,000 equivalent album units logged in the U.S. during the October 13-19 tracking week.
That’s the second-largest opening sum, in terms of units, for a Latin album since the chart began measuring by units, after his own Un Verano Sin Ti (237,000 units in its first week, May 2022).
The 22-track set dropped October 13 via Rimas Entertainment.
In true Bad Bunny fashion, Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana attributes its No. 1 start mostly to streaming activity. Streaming equivalent album units comprise 176,000, equating 239.56 million on-demand official streams of the set’s songs. That sum yields the second-biggest debut streaming week for a Latin album ever, after Benito’s own Un Verano Sin Ti, which launched with 356.55 million streams.
Sales too, contribute to Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana’s high start, with 7,500 sold (available to purchase only as a digital download album), while the remaining 500 derive from track-equivalent units.
With Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana launching at No. 1, Bad Bunny maintains his perfect run of eight No. 1s on Top Latin Albums among eight chart appearances, dating back to the arrival of X 100pre in 2019, the most for any urban act since the tally launched in 1994. Among all acts, Marco Antonio Solis continues to hold the record with 12 leaders. Here’s a recap of all of Benito’s No. 1s on the list:
