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.

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.

Rosalia Releases Highly Anticipated “MOTOMAMI” Album

Rosalía is revvin’ it up…

The 28-year-old Spanish Grammy-winning singer and songwriter has released MOTOMAMI, the follow up to her acclaimed album El Mar Querer.

RosaliaIt’s the first album Rosalia, who made her official Saturday Night Live musical guest debut last weekend, releases since becoming an A-List artist who brought a new vision of flamenco that incorporated electronic and hip-hop music and subsequently earned critical raves and new fans across the globe.

El Mal Querer is a lot to live up to, and MOTOMAMI certainly delivers.

The album features new influences and sounds that naturally fall around her persona.

MOTOMAMI includes vocal showcases, dembow riffs, bachata breaks, starry-eyed pop, Auto-Tune crooning and some of the most spirited rapping you’ll hear anywhere in 2022, as Rosalía creates a sonic playground both unforeseen and breathtaking.

Rosalía Releases Catchy New Single “Chicken Teriyaki”

Rosalía is craving a little Chicken Teriyaki

The 28-year-old Spanish Grammy-winning singer and songwriter has released her latest single, “Chicken Teriyaki,” along with a dance-heavy video to accompany the track.

Rosalia ELLE Summer 2020In the visual, a red-haired Rosalía is joined by a studio full of her closest friends, dressed in black crop top with asymmetrical cutouts, pink shorts and sky-high lucite heels.

Before kicking off the choreography, she sneaks over to a large boom box, blasts the volume on the Latin trap song and singlehandedly commences the group’s dance session, which features sensual body rolls and splits.

Speaking with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1 about the song, Rosalia said that she was “just really laughing while I was writing lyrics” and “having fun with it” while working on the track during a stay at New York City’s Mercer Hotel.

Chicken Teriyaki” serves as the third single from Rosalía’s forthcoming album, Motomami, following The Weeknd assisted “La Fama,” and “Saoko.”

She told Lowe that the latter was the final song recorded for the new body of work.

“‘SAOKO’ is the last song I made for the album. I think it’s when you really put the pieces together, you understand what you’re doing, you understand the palette, you understand the direction, you are clear about what you’re doing. And you’re freer too, because you have the rest of the pieces, so it gives you confidence,” she said, adding that she wanted a track that sounded both “red tone” and “jazz.”

Motomami is set to release on March 18 via Columbia Records.

Rosalía Releases New Edgy Reggaeton-Meets-Jazz Track “Saoko

Rosalía is livin’ on the edgy

The 28-year-old Spanish Grammy-winning singer and songwriter, who announced she’ll be releasing her upcoming album Motomami in March, has released her latest track “Saoko.”

Rosalia, SaokoRosalia’s experimental identity thrives in the edgy and irresistible reggaetón bop that’s unorthodoxly fused with improvised jazz.

The track also samples the 2004 anthem “Saoco” by Wisin and Daddy Yankee.

“Naming my next track ‘SAOKO’ and sampling Yankee and Wisin for me is the most direct homage I can make to classic reggaetón, a genre that I love and that has been a constant and great inspiration throughout the MOTOMAMI project,” Rosalia said in a statement.

The energetically-pumped video for the new track was directed by Valentin Petit, where Rosalía is as fierce as ever with an all-women biker gang in tow.

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.”
