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

Bad Bunny is celebrating a massive summer…

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 July 9.

Bad BunnyBad Bunny now has a third nonconsecutive week at the summit with the acclaimed album, as the set climbs 2-1 in its eighth week.

The album earned 115,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending June 30 (down 5%), according to Luminate.

With a third week at No. 1, Un Verano Sin Ti has the second-most weeks at No. 1 in 2022, following the Encanto soundtrack, with nine.

Un Verano Sin Ti’s third week at No. 1 also marks its third total visit to the top, as the album debuted at No. 1 on the May 21-dated chart, then dropped from the top slot for three weeks.

It then returned to No. 1 on June 18, and then moved aside for two more weeks, until coming back to No. 1 on the new chart.

Un Verano Sin Ti is the first album with three separate visits to No. 1 since Drake’s Certified Lover Boy also had three distinct stays at No. 1 in 2021, for a total of five weeks atop the list (three weeks: Sept. 18-Oct. 2, then Oct. 23 and Nov. 6, 2021).

The all-Spanish-language Un Verano Sin Ti is also the second mostly-or-all-non-English-language album to spend more than a single week at No. 1. The first was The Singing Nun’s self-titled all-French-language album — it concluded its 10-week run at No. 1 in February of 1964. (They are two of the 15 total mostly-or-all-non-English albums to reach No. 1.)

Un Verano Sin Ti has earned over 100,000 in each of its first eight weeks on the chart. The last title 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).

Un Verano Sin Ti has yet to fall below No. 2 in its eight weeks on the Billboard 200 chart. The last album to spend its first eight weeks on the chart in the top two was Drake’s Certified Lover Boy, which spent its first nine weeks in the top two (September 18-November13, 2021-dated 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 115,000 equivalent album units earned, SEA units comprise 114,000 (down 5%; equaling 160.18 million on-demand official streams of the set’s tracks), and album sales and TEA units comprise less than 1,000 units each.

Chencho Corleone Earns First No. 1 in a Lead Role on a Billboard Radio Chart with “Desesperados” with Rauw Alejandro

Chencho Corleone has earned a special first…

The 43-year-old Puerto Rican singer, composer and actor has earned his first No. 1 in a lead role on a Billboard radio chart as “Desesperados,” with Rauw Alejandro, tops the Latin Airplay chart dated July 2.

Chencho Corleone“Desesperados,” promoted to radio through Duars/Sony Music Latin, rises 4-1 it its 14th week thanks to a 22% boost in audience impressions, to 10.6 million, earned in the U.S. in the week ending June 26, according to Luminate.

The track displaces another Sony Music Latin title from the lead: Prince Royce and Maria Becerra’s “Te Espero,” sending it to No. 5 after its one-week reign.

While Corleone claims his best performance among three Latin Airplay entries, Rauw clocks his ninth No. 1, all earned within a two-year period, dating back to “TBT,” with Sebastian Yatra and Manuel Turizo, in July 2020.

The surge in “Desesperados” impressions gives the song its corresponding lift on Latin Rhythm Airplay, which measures the most-heard Latin rhythmic songs also through audience impressions metrics. There, the song jumps 2-1 in its 15th week.

The move also secures Corleone his first leader in a lead role on Latin Rhythm Airplay and second overall. His maiden champ arrived almost eight years ago, through his featured role in Tito El Bambino’s five-week ruler “A Que No Te Atreves” in September 2014. As the song held atop the survey in its third week, it concurrently topped Tropical Airplay for one week (October 2014).

Corleone’s chart rewards continue across Latin charts. His first collaboration with compatriot Bad Bunny has sustained his Hot Latin Songs domination for a seven-week run (and counting): “Me Porto Bonito” leads the all-metric tally (a blend of airplay, streaming activity, and digital sales) thanks to 22.7 million official streams, up 5%, in the week ending June 23.

While “Me Porto” holds strong at No. 1 on Latin Streaming Songs, it’s the only Spanish-language track in the top 10 on the overall Streaming Songs survey, at No. 6, among a collection of five Drake debuts and four other English-language songs.

In addition to its streaming count, “Me Porto” traces its Hot Latin Songs domination to 1,000 downloads sold. The song remains at No. 2 on Latin Digital Song Sales for a second week.

Maria Becerra Earns First No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay Chart with Prince Royce-Collab “Te Espero”

It’s a special first for Maria Becerra

The 22-year-old Argentine singer and former YouTuber has notched her first No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart as “Te Espero,” her collaboration with Prince Royce, rises 3-1 on the June 25-dated ranking.

Maria Becerra, Prince Royce, Te Espero“Te Espero” reaches the top of the all-genre tally, concurrent with its third week at No. 1 on the Tropical Airplay chart, due in part to a 19% gain in audience impressions, to 10.5 million, earned in the U.S. in the week ending June 19, according to Luminate.

Released via Sony Music Latin on March 3, the song rises to No. 1 in its 15th week on the list and displaces another Sony Music Latin title from the top spot as Carlos Vives and Camilo’s “Baloncito Viejo” falls 1-7 after its one-week lead.

Further, “Te Espero” becomes the sixth song to reach the summit in 15 weeks or more in 2022.

Here’s a look at the ascent of these titles:

Number of weeks to the top, Title, Artist, Label
19, “Ley Seca,” Jhay Cortez & Anuel AA (Feb. 5)
17, “Mala,” Marc Anthony (March 12)
17, “Cúrame,” Rauw Alejandro (March 5)
17, “Sejodioto,” Karol G (Feb. 12)
16, “Medallo,” Blessd, Justin Quiles & Lenny Tavarez (May 21)
15, “Te Espero,” Prince Royce & Maria Becerra (June 25)

Becerra scores her first champ in her first try, all of which arrived in 2022. She’s also posted a pair of other titles, none of which hit top 20. Becerra, concurrently, becomes the eighth artist to claim a first leader this year.

Here’s the recap:

Artist, Title, Artists, Peak Date
Victor Cárdenas, “El Incomprendido,” with Farruko & DJ Adoni (Jan. 29)

Blessd, “Medallo,” with Justin Quiles and Lenny Tavarez (May 21)
Lenny Tavarez, “Medallo,” with Justin Quiles and Blessd (May 21)
Maria Becerra, “Te Espero,” with Prince Royce (June 25)

Royce, meanwhile, captures his 15th hit on Latin Airplay, the third-most among tropical acts, trailing only Romeo Santos’ 19 No. 1s and Vives’ 16 champs. J Balvin continues at the helm with 35 leaders.

The surge in “Te Espero” plays also gives the tune a corresponding ascent on the all-metric Hot Latin Songs chart, which measures airplay, streaming data, and digital sales.

There, the bachata hit rises 38-36, after its No. 26 peak on the May 14-dated survey.

Camilo, meanwhile, clocks his sixth leader and first of the year. It follows “Millones” which ruled for one week in July 2021. Along with “Baloncito Viejo,” Camilo also charts with “Pegao” on Latin Airplay, at No. 42 on the current chart week.
