Bad Bunny’s “Un Verano Sin Ti” Overtakes “Encanto” Soundtrack as Most Popular Album of 2022

Bad Bunny isn’t talking about Bruno 

The 28-year-old Puerto Rican superstar’s smash album Un Verano Sin Ti has overtaken Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Encanto soundtrack as the most popular album of 2022, according to Luminate.

Bad BunnyReleased on May 6, Un Verano Sin Ti has now earned 1.606 million equivalent album units in the U.S., through the week ending July 21. It surpasses the Encanto soundtrack, which is now the year’s No. 2 most popular set, with 1.565 million units earned in 2022.

Earlier in July, when Luminate (whose data powers Billboard’s charts) released its midyear data (reflecting the tracking period of December 30, 2021-June 30, 2022), Encanto was the top album, while the all-Spanish-language Un Verano Sin Ti was the second-biggest set.

Equivalent album units comprise traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). Each unit equals one album sales, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported on-demand official audio and video streams generated by songs from an album, or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official and audio streams generated by songs from an album.

Un Verano Sin Ti has spent six nonconsecutive weeks atop the weekly Billboard 200 albums chart, including the latest tally, dated July 30. Further, it has earned over 100,000 units in each of its first 11 weeks of release – the first album to do so since Adele’s 25 saw its first 14 weeks all exceed 100,000 units (December 12, 2015-March 12, 2016-dated charts).

Additionally, Un Verano Sin Ti has spent its first 11 weeks on the Billboard 200 chart in the top two, dating to its debut atop the May 21, 2022, tally. The last album to start off as strong was Drake’s Views, which spent its first 17 weeks in the top two (May 21-September 10, 2016-dated charts).

Notably, 25 and Views finished as the most popular albums of 2015 and 2016, respectively, by units earned.

Un Verano Sin Ti has also generated four top 10-charting songs on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart (which blends streaming, airplay and sales data to rank the 100 most popular songs of the week in the U.S.). One of those four top 10 hits, “Me Porto Bonito,” with Chencho Corleone, hit No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart dated July 30, becoming the first all-Spanish-language No. 1 in the chart’s nine-year history.

Meanwhile, Un Verano Sin Ti marks the second all-Spanish-language album to reach No. 1 on the 66-year-old chart. The first was Bad Bunny’s last LP, 2020’s El Último Tour del Mundo. As the latter led for a week, the former is the first such set to reign for multiple weeks.

The soundtrack to Disney’s Encanto debuted, at No. 197, on the Dec. 11, 2021-dated Billboard 200 and has spent nine weeks at No. 1, in January-March, and ranked in the chart’s top 40 each week starting with the January 8 ranking.

Bad Bunny’s “Un Verano Sin Ti” Returns to No. 1 on Billboard 200

Bad Bunny’s summer glow up continues…

The 28-year-old Puerto Rican superstar’s latest album Un Verano Sin Ti has returned to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 albums chart dated June 18 for a second week on top (rising from No. 2), following its debut at No. 1 on the May 21-dated chart.

Bad BunnyAfter its chart-topping opening, the album sat in the No. 2 slot for the next three weeks. The set earned 137,000 equivalent album units (down 3%) in the U.S. in the week ending June 9, according to Luminate. 

Un Verano Sin Ti is the first album released in 2022 to exceed 100,000 equivalent album units earned in each of its first five weeks. (The last title to do so was Adele’s late 2021 release 30, on the December 4, 2021-January 1, 2022 charts.)

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.

Of Un Verano Sin Ti’s 137,000 equivalent album units earned, SEA units comprise 135,500 (down 3%; equaling 189.47 million on-demand official streams of the set’s tracks), album sales comprise 1,000 (down 9%) and TEA units comprise 500 (up 4%).

Notably, Un Verano Sin Ti marks the first all-Spanish-language album to spend multiple weeks at No. 1 in the Billboard 200’s 66-year history. Only one other such set has led for even one week: Bad Bunny’s last album, El Último Tour del Mundo, which arrived atop the December 12, 2020 tally.

Bad Bunny Helps Propel Streaming of Latin Music Past Country for First Time Ever in U.S.

Bad Bunny is helping push Latin music to new heights…

In a week where the 28-year-old Puerto Rican superstar’s Un Verano Sin Ti dominated the charts, the new album accounted for 18% of all U.S. Latin on-demand streams and pushed the genre’s streaming market share past country for the first time ever.

Bad Bunny

According to Luminate, last week (the week ending May 12) was the Latin genre’s highest streaming week to date with over 1.8 billion weekly ODA streams, largely driven by Bad Bunny’s new set.

It’s also greater than any weekly total for the country genre to date, according to the data company, making Latin the fourth most on-demand streamed genre, currently, in the U.S. (after hip-hop, rock and pop).

Additionally, of the top 50 streaming markets, cities like Orlando, Milwaukee and San Diego experienced significant Latin streaming increases.

On the Billboard charts, Bad Bunny’s 23-track set debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200Top Latin Albums and Latin Rhythm Albums charts.

Furthermore, every song from the album lands on the Hot Latin Songs chart, and 22 of those songs also debut on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100. With Un Verano Sin Ti released on May 6, Bad Bunny breaks a record with 274,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S., marking the biggest week for any Latin music album by equivalent album units earned.

Un Verano Sin Ti becomes the second all-Spanish album to rule the Billboard 200 — the first one to sit atop the chart was Bad Bunny’s El Último Tour del Mundo in 2020.

Moreover, Bad Bunny’s new album isn’t the only Spanish set to enter the Billboard 200 this week. For the first time ever, two all-Spanish-language albums have placed in the top 10 simultaneously as Eslabon Armado’s Nostalgia debuts at No. 9 on the tally. The teenage group’s 14-track album makes history as the first top 10-charting regional Mexican album ever on the Billboard 200.

Bad Bunny and Eslabon Armado’s notable achievements reflect an enduring genre growth trend.

According to Luminate, Latin gained more than any other genre last year, growing its market share to 5.39% — up 9% from 4.95% of the market in 2019. Meanwhile, Country had a minor bump in the market share from 7.91% in 2019 to 8.09% in 2021. It’s worth noting that Latin’s growth is driven by streaming, which accounts for 97.2% of Latin music’s consumption activity, whereas Country’s streaming growth has been slower.

“While Bad Bunny’s new album was certainly a primary driver behind Latin’s record-setting numbers this week, we’ve been tracking the genre’s significant audio streaming growth since the start of the pandemic in March of 2020,” says Luminate CEO Rob Jonas. “Since then, Latin has cemented itself as one of the major genres in the US, alongside R&B/HipHop, Rock, Pop, and Country. We’re interested to see how it will continue to grow globally and how it will impact cultural trends and Latin music’s influence across markets.”

Bad Bunny Makes Massive Impression on Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. Charts

Bad Bunny is livin’ the stream globally…

Following the release of his latest album Un Verano Sin Ti on May 6, the entire track list of the 28-year-old Puerto Rican rapper, singer, songwriter and record producer’s project has charted on the May 21-dated Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts.

Bad BunnyIn fact, Bad Bunny cracks the top 50 of each ranking with all 23 songs featured on the album

In total, Bad Bunny simultaneously charts with 28 songs on the Global Excl. U.S. tally, and 27 on the Global 200, including seven in the top 10 of each.

Both counts are record-setting on the former chart, surpassing Taylor Swift’s 24 entries on the November 27, 2021-dated list, and blowing by Drake, Olivia Rodrigo and Ed Sheeran, each of whom has logged three songs in the top 10 at once.

The wave of new Bad Bunny material is led by the album’s opening track, “Moscow Mule,” entering at No. 2 on both lists with 97.2 million global streams in the week ending May 12, according to Luminate. (On average, the album’s 23 songs rank three positions higher on the Global 200 than the Global Excl. U.S. survey.)

Songs from Un Verano Sin Ti drew 33.9% of their streams from the U.S. and 66.1% from outside. While not dramatically different, first-week streams for Bad Bunny’s previous studio album, 2020’s El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo, split 30.2% U.S. and 69.8% beyond.

The extra 3.7% of domestic listenership on streaming services for his newest release reinforces that Bad Bunny’s star has continued to rise and spread in the primarily English-language U.S. market (including his home of Puerto Rico), while he continues to be a dominant force in Latin America and beyond.

He tops Billboard‘s Hits of the World charts in Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru and Spain, placing anywhere from 18 to 23 songs on each of the 25-position rankings.

Cumulatively, songs from Un Verano Sin Ti generated 1.06 billion global streams in the tracking week. That marks a 104% increase from the opening-week activity for El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo (520.4 million).

And while his new album has more songs to accumulate more streams (23 vs. 15; Ultimo also includes a 16th track performed by Trio Vegabajeno), the average streaming sum among Un Verano Sin Ti ‘s tracks was 46.1 million, compared to 34.7 million for cuts on El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo.

Bad Bunny’s global takeover adds to his domination of Billboard‘s U.S.-based Latin charts and all-genre Billboard Hot 100 and Billboard 200 rankings.

Bad Bunny Breaks Two Spotify Records with New “Un Verano Sin Ti” Album’s First Day Streams

Bad Bunny is breaking streaming records with his latest album…

The 28-year-old Puerto Rican rapper, singer and record producer’s Un Verano Sin Ti  broke two Spotify records in its first day of release, Friday, May 6.

Bad BunnyBad Bunny’s Un Verano Sin Ti became the most-streamed album in 2022 so far.

He also reached the milestone of becoming the most-streamed artist globally in one day, with 183 million streams. Drake previously held this record, with 176.8 million streams.

On Friday, all 23 songs on Bad Bunny’s new album ranked in the top 30 of Spotify’s Daily Top Songs Global chart, with nine of those tracks finding their way to the top 10.

Bad Bunny, who was Spotify’s most-streamed artist worldwide in both 2020 and 2021, released Un Verano Sin Ti  — the follow-up to El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo, which in 2020 made history as the first Spanish-language album to hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 — via Rimas Entertainment.

Sony Developing “El Muerto” Marvel Character Film with Bad Bunny Attached to Star

Bad Bunny is dying for an exciting new role…

Sony Pictures, looking to continue to expand and diversify its universe of Marvel characters, is developing an El Muerto movie with the 28-year-old Puerto Rican Grammy-winning singer attached to star.

Bad BunnyThe announcement was made at Cinemacon during Sony’s panel where Bad Bunny made a surprise appearance.

The character of El Muerto, aka Juan Carlos, was a super powered wrestler who originally fought Spider-Man in a charity wrestling match in which he nearly unmasked the webslinger before being stung by Spider-Man with a paralyzing poison. After his oppressor El Dorado came to claim his life, he was saved by Spider-Man, after which the two team up to defeat Dorado.

El Muerto would mark the first Latin superhero to get his own film in the universe of Marvel characters, coming right after Sony recently dated Madame Webwhich marked the first female character from the Spider-Man universe to get her own film.

Though El Muerto isn’t as popular as Venom or Kraven the Hunter, Sony’s rush to get this film into development has much to do with Bad Bunny’s persistence in finding that right superhero property for himself.

The superstar is set to make his major studio debut in the highly-anticipated action film Bullet Train on July 29, a project that led to Aaron Taylor-Johnson landing the lead role in Kraven the Hunter. 

The same situation looks to have happened with Bad Bunny with executives extremely high on the final Bad Bunny footage from the film.

Following recent meetings to figure out a starring vehicle for him, the multi-hyphenate took matters into his own hands and began mining the Spider-Man library for Latin characters that would suit him, eventually coming across El Muerto. The studio loved the idea and hopes to move quickly on the project given Bad Bunny’s busy touring and acting schedule.

Besides Bullet Train, he was also recently seen in Narcos: Mexico and has Cassandro coming out alongside Gael García Bernal. He also recently wrapped his arena tour El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo

El Muerto will come out on Jan. 12, 2024.

Benito Antonio Marinez Ocasio (aka Bad Bunny) said working on Bullet Train was “an amazing experience. David (Leitch) is awesome. I loved working with him on my first film and now with this opportunity to bring El Muerto to life. It’s amazing, it’s incredible. I love wrestling. I grew up watching wrestling and I’m a wrestler. I’m a former champion so this is why I love this character. I think it’s the perfect role to me and it will be epic.”

Bad Bunny Reveals New Album Name via Online Classified Ad

Extra, extra, read all about the name of Bad Bunny’s new album…

The 28-year-old Puerto Rican superstar revealed the name of his upcoming album in the most peculiar way: an ad of a 2019 Bugatti Chiron for sale.

Bad BunnyThe ad popped up in a Puerto Rican classifieds website with info on the car and the person who was selling it, which was Benito A. Martinez Ocasio (Bad Bunny’s real name).

Curious fans begin dialing the number listed on and realized they were calling to hear a snippet of a song and would later receive a text message with the name of the album.

“Hello! Thank you for calling. There’s little time left until the album comes out. I can’t say the date yet, but I can tell you the name: Un Verano Sin Ti.

The upcoming album will follow his 2020 set, El Último Tour del Mundo, which won a Grammy earlier this month for best música urbana album.

In January, El Conejo Malo hinted at his new album via a post on social media that opens with the “Safaera” singer and his girlfriend, Gabriela Berlingeri, having a romantic beach dinner and enjoying a conversation about his tour and the album.

“We need to start worrying less and enjoy life more because it passes by fast, very fast, just like the tickets selling out for El Último Tour del Mundo,” Bunny said. “I was thinking, ‘What if I announce my next tour?’ Therefore, while I work on my new album, which will come out this year, you can buy tickets for my next tour.”

Bad Bunny and his trek, El Úultimo Tour del Mundo, broke records across the country. The tour’s 35 shows grossed $116.8 million and sold 575,000 tickets according to figures reported to Billboard Boxscore.

That breaks down to $3.3 million and 16,400 tickets per night, or $4.7 million and more than 23,000 tickets in each market, considering he played multiple shows in eight cities.

Bad Bunny’s El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo Tops Billboard’s Monthly Top Tours Chart

Bad Bunny is officially a tour de force

The 28-year-old Puerto Rican rapper/singer’s El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo repeats at No. 1 on Billboard’s monthly Top Tours chart.

Bad BunnyBad Bunny rules in March with El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo earning $64.8 million from 337,000 tickets across 20 shows, according to figures reported to Billboard Boxscore.

That makes him the first artist to ever reign over back-to-back months. And one month after claiming the second-highest monthly gross for an arena tour ($39.8 million in February), his March figures rewrite the record entirely, blasting pass Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s $47 million run in December 2019.

Overall, it’s the second-highest monthly total since the charts launched in March 2019. Only The Rolling Stones stand in Bad Bunny’s way with their $95 million stadium sum in August 2019. Still, Bad Bunny’s March arena earnings stand above chart-topping stadiums runs by Ed Sheeran (April ’19), BTS (May ’19), Spice Girls (June ’19) and P!nk (July ’19).

The gargantuan $65 million haul is more than double the gross of his next closest competitors this month.

As previously reported, Bad Bunny’s February dates in Inglewood, Calif., and Dallas, among others, set local records for per-night gross and overall earnings.

In March, he continued to set regional high marks, including the three-night run at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill. (20 miles outside of Chicago), which grossed $11.2 million and sold 51,400 tickets from March 10 to 12. More records were set in San Jose ($7.9 million on March 3-4), Phoenix ($3.2 million on March 6), and Orlando ($5.6 million on March 30-31).

While it didn’t quite reach the top, Bad Bunny’s double-header at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center earned $7.2 million immediately after his $3.8 million take the night before at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. That adds up to $11.1 million over three nights in the New York area.

These and other shows from the tour flood the Top Boxscores ranking, where Bad Bunny takes up seven spots. The Rosemont, San Jose and Brooklyn shows hit the top 10 at Nos. 2, 8 and 10, respectively.

El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo wrapped after two months on April 3 with $116.8 million. Its final triple-header in Miami will likely be the run’s last appearance on next month’s Boxscore report before yielding to Bad Bunny’s own next tour — World’s Hottest Tour. His follow-up level-up to stadiums in North and Latin America launches later this year.

In March, Bad Bunny narrowly took the No. 1 spot on Top Boxscores over a Latin American festival, keeping Mexico City’s Electric Daisy Carnival at No. 2. One month later, despite the record-setting overall haul, he is dethroned by Sao Paulo’s Lollapalooza Brasil. The three-day event grossed $23.2 million with a weekend attendance of 267,000 over March 25-27.

London’s O2 Arena is the month’s top-grossing venue with earnings of $26.8 million. It’s the first venue outside the U.S. to take the top spot on the 15,001+ capacity chart since Mexico City’s Foro Sol ruled over March 2020. Before that, you have to go back to May 2019, when the O2 itself topped the list with a slightly less massive $22 million.

Bad Bunny’s El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo Trek Becomes Highest-Grossing Tour by a Latin Artist

Bad Bunny is making history…

The 28-year-old Puerto Rican rapper, singer and record producer’s El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo has become the highest-grossing tour by a Latin artist in Billboard Boxscore history.

Bad BunnyThe tour’s 35 shows grossed $116.8 million and sold 575,000 tickets according to figures reported to Billboard Boxscore.

That breaks down to $3.3 million and 16,400 tickets per night, or $4.7 million and more than 23,000 tickets in each market, considering he played multiple shows in eight cities.

The tour officially wrapped on April 3 in Miami, which he celebrated by dancing to “Safaera” in a pool of fans dressed in shark costumes.

That same night, he won the Grammy for best música urbana album for El Ultimo Tour del Mundo.
