Tovar composed 22 of the 24 tracks of the set.

“We feel more than happy to be back at No. 1. Thank you to the fans, God, my family and the Del Records company that supports and trusts my ideas,” Tovar says.

Four cuts off the set arrive on the Hot Latin Songs chart, including one top 10. Here’s a rundown of Eslabon’s new arrivals to the list:
