Make that three in a row for Bad Bunny…
The 29-year-old Puerto Rican Grammy-winning superstar has claimed his third No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart dated October 28, as Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana debuts at the top of the album charts.
The set earned 184,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending October 19, according to Luminate. Almost all of the album’s opening week was driven by streaming activity of its songs. The release of Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana was announced on October 9 and released October 13.
Of Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana’s 184,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending October 19, SEA units comprise 176,000 (making it the most streamed album of the week, equaling 239.56 million on-demand official streams of the set’s songs), album sales comprise 7,500 (it was only available to purchase as a digital download album) and TEA units comprise 500.
Bad Bunny previously led the Billboard 200 with Un Verano Sin Ti (for 13 nonconsecutive weeks in 2022) and El Ultimo Tour del Mundo (one week in 2020).
As the Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana album is essentially all-Spanish, it’s the 21st mostly non-English language album to hit No. 1, and the fourth all-Spanish album to reach No. 1.
Bad Bunny has three of the four all-Spanish No. 1s, while Karol G has the fourth (Mañana Será Bonito, this March).
