Camilo Earns First No. 1 on Billboard’s Regional Mexican Airplay Chart with Grupo Firme Collab “Alaska”

It’s another first for Camilo

The 28-year-old Colombian Latin Grammy-winning singer has landed his first No. 1 on Billboard’s Regional Mexican Airplay chart as “Alaska,” his single with Grupo Firme, rises from the No. 4 slot to rule the November 12-dated list.

Camilo“Alaska” received its official release through Hecho A Mano/Sony Music Latin on August 18. It’s the sixth single from Camilo’s third studio album, De Adentro Pa’ Fuera, which reached a No. 6 high on Latin Pop Albums (September 24).

“Alaska” reaches the No. 1 slot, after a second week in the top 10 (No. 4 high, November 5-dated ranking) and in its eighth week on the chart boosted by a 25% increase in audience impressions, to 7.1 million, earned in the U.S. in the week ending Nov. 6, according to Luminate.

The regional Mexican tune, which was co-written and co-produced by Camilo alongside Edgar Barrera, dispatches Duelo’s “24 Siete” after it’s one-week command.

With seven No. 1s on its career history, Grupo Firme ties with Christian Nodal and Banda MS for the third-most champs this decade, trailing Calibre 50’s eight leaders. Since the chart launched in 1994, Calibre 50 continues at the helm with 22 No. 1’s.

“Alaska” becomes the first team-up by a regional Mexican group with a core Latin pop act to lead Regional Mexican Airplay since Natalia Lafourcade ruled for three weeks through her featured role in Los Angeles Azules’ “Nunca Es Suficiente” in 2019.

Meanwhile, “Alaska” earns Grupo Firme its fourth No. 1 in 2022, including “Cada Quien,” with Maluma, which topped the chart for two weeks in February

“Alaska” advances 11-7 on the overall Latin Airplay ranking, earning Camilo his 11th top 10 while Grupo Firme adds a sixth top 10 to its scoreboard.

Selena Quintanilla’s “Moonchild Mixes” Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Pop Albums Chart

Selena Quintanilla has another No. 1 album to her credit…

Moonchild Mixes, the new posthumous album by the late Mexican American singer, known as la Reina de la Musica Tejana, has debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Pop Albums chart dated September 10.

Selena QuintanillaIt also debuts at No. 2 on the Regional Mexican Albums chart and No. 8 on the all-Latin-encompassing Top Latin Albums chart with 5,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the August 26-September 1 tracking week, according to Luminate. 

The album earns the late icon her seventh No. 1 on Latin Pop Albums, tying Shakira and Thalia for the most among women.

The album also helps Selena extend her record for the most total weeks spent atop the chart. All seven of her No. 1 albums have spent a combined 173 weeks at No. 1 — Enrique Iglesias trails with the second-most, at 130 weeks.

The set also earns Selena her 18th top 10 on Regional Mexican Albums, the third-most among soloists after Vicente Fernandez (49) and Joan Sebastian (31).

On Top Latin Albums, the LP earns Selena her 16th top 10 album, extending her record for the most among women. Marco Antonio Solis and Vicente Fernandez lead all acts with 25 top 10 albums apiece.

Moonchild Mixes includes 10 previously unreleased songs by the superstar, who died in 1995 at age 23. She recorded the tracks between the ages of 13 and 16. In a recent interview with Billboard, her father Abraham Quintanilla Jr. said releasing the album is a way to keep her memory and legacy alive.

“We as a family had discussed this amongst ourselves that in the future, after Selena’s passing, we were going to maintain her presence through her music and we’ve done that for 27 years. I’m more than sure that the fans are going to love it because if you listen to it, it’ll move you emotionally and take you back to as if Selena was recording it this morning.”

Kali Uchis’ “Sin Miedo (Del Amor y Otros Demonios)” Returns to No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Pop Albums Chart

Kali Uchis is back on top… 

More than a year after scoring her first No. 1 on a Billboard albums chart with her first Spanish-language set Sin Miedo (Del Amor y Otros Demonios), the 27-year-old Colombian American singer’s album returns to No. 1 on the Latin Pop Albums chart.

Kali UchisThe album concurrently debuts in the top 10 on the Vinyl Albums chart.

Sin Miedo was issued on clear vinyl for Record Store Day’s June 18 drop via EMI/Interscope/IGA, which prompts the album’s 6-1 jump on Latin Pop Albums with 9,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending June 23, up 201%.

Of that unit total, album sales comprise 6,000 (up 6,857%), with nearly all of that figure in vinyl sales. Concurrently, the album debuts at No. 9 on the Vinyl Albums chart.

It’s Uchis’ second top 10 on Vinyl Albums. She captured her first entry — and first top 10 — with the English-language effort Isolation (No. 10 high, 2018).

Notably, Sin Miedo becomes the sixth Spanish-language album to secure a spot in the top 10 on the 25-deep tally Vinyl Albums tally since its inception in 2011.

Here’s the leaderboard:

Title, Artist, Peak Position, Peak Date
Ones, Selena, No. 1, July 8, 2020
Anniversary Trilogy, Bad Bunny, No. 1, Jan. 15, 2022
Buena Vista Social Club, Buena Vista Social Club, No. 10, Oct. 16, 2021 (debut)
El Último Tour del Mundo, Bad Bunny, No. 4, April 2022 (debut)
Motomami, Rosalía, No. 7, May 28, 2022 (debut)
Sin Miedo (Del Amor y Otros Demonios), Kali Uchis, No. 9, July 2, 2022

In addition, one more Spanish-language album has reached the Vinyl Albums chart (but didn’t hit the top 10) — Bad Bunny’s X 100PRE (No. 19 peak on March 20, 2021).

On Latin Pop Albums, Sin Miedo returns to No. 1 for the first time since the October 16, 2021-dated chart. In total, the set has spent 10 nonconsecutive weeks atop the list.

Out of its 9,000-unit sum, 6,000 stem from album sales (effectively all in vinyl sales). Streaming makes up most of the remaining sum, with 3,000 from that sector, equal to 4.1 million on-demand official streams for the album’s songs.

The album also rejoins the top 10 on Top Latin Albums, flying 30-4. It returns to the top 10 for the first time since the chart dated October 16, 2021, when it ranked at No. 7. Sin Miedo peaked at No. 3 for four nonconsecutive weeks that year — its highest ranking in its 84-week charting history (and counting). As in Latin Pop Albums, the set takes home the Greatest Gainer honors there.

Over on the all-genre Billboard 200, Sin Miedo re-enters at No. 122, its highest ranking in over a year.

Christina Aguilera Releases New Spanish EP “La Tormenta”

Christina Aguilera is embracing the torment

The 41-year-old half-Ecuadorian American Grammy-winning singer has released her new EP La Tormenta.

Christina AguileraAguilera has postponed the release of the five-track production, which includes her highly anticipated collaboration with Tini, “Sueltame,” following the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.

The follow-up to Aguilera’s six-track EP La Fuerza, released in January, the new EP is home to tracks that not only continue to showcase Xtina’s powerful vocals singing in Spanish, but also her experimental ability to tap into reggaeton and other Latin rhythmic melodies while maintaining her pop essence.

“Sueltame” marks the EP’s focus single alongside Argentine pop star, Tini, a sultry tango-meets-urban collaboration where the lady takes matters into her own hands.

“If you want to kiss me, kiss me/ If you want to touch me, touch me/ But this only lasts until the morning/ If you want me to come back, let me go,” goes part of the lyrics.

The release of La Tormenta was postponed to respect those who lost their lives in the senseless mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

“I will be postponing the release of my new music as we mourn with the community of Uvalde,” Aguilera wrote via her Instagram Story on Thursday, May 26. “My heart breaks for the families and loved ones of the children and educators affected by this tragedy. I urge our leaders to make immediate changes on laws around gun control.”

Both La Tormenta and La Fuerza mark Xtina’s first Spanish effort in more than 20 years since Mi Reflejo, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart in 2000.

With La Fuerza, Aguilera returned to Billboard’s Latin album charts with its No. 1 debut on the Latin Pop Albums chart dated February 5.

Rosalía’s “Motomami” Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Pop Albums Chart

Rosalía is a woman on top of her game…

The 28-year-old Spanish singer has earned her second No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Pop Albums chart as Motomami, her third studio album, debuts at No. 1 on the April 2-dated ranking.

Rosalia

The album opens its first week of sales with the largest week of 2022 for a Latin pop album and the best opening week among all album debuts so far.

The 16-track set, including the spoken interlude “Abcdefg,” is a follow up to her No. 1 effort El Mal Querer (2018), which gave Rosalia her first chart-topper on any Billboard ranking and her first entry and top 10 on Top Latin Albums (No. 10 high).

Released on March 18 via Columbia Records., MOTOMAMI opens with 17,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. after its first tracking week ending in March 24, according to Luminate, formerly MRC Data. That’s by far the largest week of the year for a Latin pop album by units earned, surpassing the overpowering Ones by Selena, which earned 10,000 units in the week ending January 1.

It concurrently boasts the largest week among all Latin pop albums that have debuted in 2022, besting Jay Wheeler’s El Amor y Yo (5,000 units, chart dated February 26) and Sebastian Yatra’s Dharma (4,000 units, February 12 dated survey).

The Latin Pop Albums chart ranks the most popular Latin pop albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units, compiled by MRC Data. 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 Motomami’s 17,000 equivalent album units, SEA comprise 14,000 thousand units (equaling 19.37 million on-demand streams from the set’s tracks), album sales comprise 2,300, while TEA comprise 250 units.

In terms of streams, Motomami debuts with 14,000 SEA units – totaling 19.37 million on-demand streams from the set’s 16 tracks. That’s the second-largest streaming debut by a female act since Karol G’s KG0516 arrived with 19,000 SEA units (equaling 27.4 million on-demand streams of the set’s songs).

Motomami bows at No. 3 on the all-Latin genre Top Latin Albums tally. It bests her previous No. 10 debut and peaked set El Mal Querer (Nov. 2018). The set concurrently grants Rosalía her first appearance on the all-genre Billboard 200 as it starts at No. 33; the highest start for a Latin album since Anuel’s Las Leyendas Nunca Mueren opened at No. 30 on Dec. 2021.

Rosalía is celebrating a special American television debut…

The 28-year-old Spanish Grammy-winning singer/songwriter made her official Saturday Night Live musical guest debut on Saturday, March 12, performing two all-Spanish songs from her upcoming album MOTOMAMI.

Both tracks form part of Rosalía’s new album, MOTOMAMI, which is slated for release on March 18 through Columbia Records.

The upcoming project follows her 2018 Latin Grammy-winning El Mal Querer, which reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Pop Albums chart and won five Latin Grammys, including album of the year and best contemporary pop vocal album.

This marked Rosalía’s second appearance on the SNL stage. Last year, she made a cameo alongside Bad Bunny for a duet of their romantic collaboration “La Noche De Anoche.”

Earlier in the week, Rosalía made her U.S. talk show debut with an appearance on The Tonight Show. During the episode, the singer briefly spoke about her forthcoming album. “I feel like MOTOMAMI is an energy,” she said, jokingly dubbing Fallon a “motopapi.”

Rosalia Reveals Cover Art for New Album “Motomami,” Announces New Single Release This Week

Rosalia is revvin’ up her next project…

The 28-year-old Spanish Grammy-winning singer and songwriter has officially revealed the cover art for her forthcoming studio album, Motomami.

Rosalia ELLE Summer 2020On Monday, about two months after revealing the album’s title, Rosalia shared an image in which she appears nude, covering her private parts with her hands. She’s rocking high pigtails and a motorcycle helmet. Her name is written in blue pen with the title “Motomami” in red graffiti.

Rosalia also revealed plans to release new music this week.

“Omg here you have the cover of MOTOMAMI and guess what new song is coming this Fridayyyy,” she captioned the photo.

Motomami, set for release this year, follow’s Rosalia’s 2018 Grammy-winning El Mal Querer, which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Pop Albums chart dated Nov. 16, 2018 and won five Latin Grammys, including album of the year and best contemporary pop vocal album.

La Fama,” her second collaborative effort with The Weeknd, is the first official track from the upcoming set. The all-Spanish bachata track entered the top 10 on Billboard’s Tropical Airplay chart dated January 29 and marked the first top 10 for each artist on the list. Rosalía previously clocked her fifth top 10 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart as the track hit No. 2 on the November 27-dated survey.

“Rosalía is the type to be very judicious with what she releases,” Rosalía’s manager, Rebeca León, said during a panel at Billboard‘s Latin Music Week. “She’s a writer-producer, so she pays attention to every single detail. She’s not the type to write a song in a day.”

Rosalia took to social media to announce her forthcoming set is “coming soon,” and the album will be titled Motomami.

Set to follow her 2018 Latin Grammy-winning El Mal Quererthe album announcement was accompanied by a 15-second montage with video of Rosalía strutting her stuff in a cutout one-piece paired with black-studded heels and, in another look, covered in butterflies and glitter as she chants the phrase “Motomami” over a bass thump.

Rosalía has been mum about what we can expect from her forthcoming album. Since El Mal Querershe’s been releasing singles in collaboration with artists like Billie Eilish, Travis Scott, Bad Bunny and The Weeknd.

“Rosalía is the type to be very judicious with what she releases,” Rosalía’s manager, Rebeca León said during a panel at Billboard‘s Latin Music Week. “She’s a writer-producer, so she pays attention to every single detail. She’s not the type to write a song in a day.”

El Mal Querer hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Pop Albums chart (dated November 16, 2018) and won five Latin Grammys, including album of the year and best contemporary pop vocal album. “When I began to record El Mal Querer, I didn’t have a label or a team,” she previously told Billboard. “It was just my family — my mother and my sister — and my friends. To be able to work today with Rebeca [León, her manager] and so many other women who trust me is amazing.”
