Bad Bunny’s summer is still sizzling…
The 28-year-old Puerto Rican superstar’s Un Verano Sin Ti captures a fourth nonconsecutive week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart dated July 16.
The effort earned 111,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending July 7 (down 4%), according to Luminate.
Of Un Verano Sin Ti’s 111,000 equivalent album units earned, SEA units comprise 109,000 (down 4%; equaling 154.12 million on-demand official streams of the set’s tracks) and album sales and TEA units comprise the remainder of the week’s total.
Un Verano Sin Ti has earned over 100,000 in each of its first nine weeks on the chart. The last album to do so was nearly six years ago, when Drake’s Views saw its first 10 weeks all exceed 100,000 units (May 21-July 23, 2016, charts).
Additionally, Un Verano Sin Ti has spent its first nine weeks on the chart in the top two. The last album to start off so strong was Drake’s Certified Lover Boy, which also spent its first nine weeks in the top two (Sept. 18-Nov. 13, 2021-dated charts).
Un Verano Sin Ti debuted at No. 1 on the May 21-dated chart, then stepped away from the top slot for three weeks. It returned to No. 1 on June 18, and then moved aside for two more weeks, until coming back to No. 1 for the last two consecutive weeks.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units, compiled by Luminate. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). Each unit equals one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams generated by songs from an album.
