Plus, Shakira earns 18th No. 1 on Latin Pop Songs with “Perro Fiel."

Carlos Vives’ 10th studio album, Vives, debuts at No. 5 on the Top Latin Albums chart (dated Dec. 2) earning the singer his ninth top 10 chart entry. The set debuts with 3,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Nov. 16, according to Nielsen Music. Out of that sum, 1,000 were in traditional album sales. 

The set earned a little more than 1,000 in streaming equivalent album units -- driven by the single “Robarte Un Beso” with Sebastian Yatra. The cut tallied nearly a million on-demand audio streams for the week. Concurrently, the track rises 17-15 on the Hot Latin Songs chart with Greatest Gainer/Digital honors (posting a 152 percent gain in song downloads, rising to 4,000 sold). The album's release on Nov. 10, via Sony Music Latin, preceded his live performance of "Robarte" on the Nov. 16th Latin Grammy Awards. 

Vives last entered the Top Latin Albums chart in 2015 with the live set Más Corazón Profundo Tour: En Vivo which topped the list for one week. 

Shakira Earns Latin Pop Songs Crown: Shakira’s “Perro Fiel,” featuring Nicky Jam, tops the Latin Pop Songs airplay chart (dated Dec. 2) as the track jumps 2-1 with a 2 percent rise in detections at the format in the week ending Nov. 19. The song earns the Colombian singer-songwriter her 18th No. 1 on the chart and her third in 2017 -- she previously topped the list for five consecutive weeks with “Me Enamoré," and seven weeks with "Chantaje," featuring Maluma. The latter track began its rule at No. 1 in Dec. 2016, spending a total of 10 weeks atop the chart. Shakira maintains her lead among women with the most No. 1s on the list. She is second overall, trailing only Enrique Iglesias, with 22.

Elsewhere on the Latin Pop Songs chart, Camila Cabello’s “Havana,” featuring Young Thug, makes its debut at No. 18.  The bow grants Cabello her fourth entry on the list and is boosted by the track's recently released (mostly Spanish language) remix with Daddy Yankee. The track earned a 160 percent increase in spins at the Latin Pop format. 

Jennifer Lopez Returns to Hot Latin Songs Top 10: Over on the Hot Latin Songs chart Jennifer Lopez scores her sixth top 10 as the single “Amor, Amor, Amor,” featuring Wisin, debuts at No. 10. The track's bow is mostly powered by streams (2.5 million, debuting at No. 23 on Latin Streaming Songs) and sales (9,000 downloads sold; a debuting at No. 3 on Latin Digital Song Sales).

The single's streams are encouraged by the song's music video, which bowed on Nov. 10. It has collected over 26 million global views on YouTube.
