Through the week ending June 29 -- the half-way point of SoundScan's tracking year -- just three Latin albums have sold more than 50,000 copies. A year ago at this point, there were five titles. (However, of those, four were by the late Jenni Rivera, whose death the previous December rocked the Latin music world.
