Victor Manuelle attends the 2015 Latin Grammy Person of the Year honoring Roberto Carlos at the Mandalay Bay Events Center on Nov. 18, 2015 in Las Vegas.

The set also earns his ninth debut atop the chart.

Victor Manuelle collects his 12th No. 1 on the Tropical Albums chart, as 25/7 debuts in the penthouse of the April 7-dated list. He now ties Gilberto Santa Rosa for the most No. 1s on the 32-year-old tally.

The set — was released on March 23 via Kiyavi/Sony Music Latin — earned 4,000 equivalent album units in the week ending March 29, according to Nielsen Music. Most of that sum was driven by traditional album sales.

25/7 is Victor Manuelle’s 18th studio album and celebrates the sonero’s 25-year career. He last topped the list with Que Suenen Los Tambores, which bowed at No. 1 with a little more than 4,000 units earned in its first week. His latest LP also bows at No. 1 on the Latin Album Sales chart and at No. 2 on Top Latin Albums (his 14th top 10 on the tally).

Four 25/7 tracks have found success on the Tropical Songs airplay chart: “Cuando Me Eschuchen” (No. 15), “Hasta Que Me De La Gana” (No. 6), “Mala y Peligrosa,” with Bad Bunny (No. 7) and “Amarte Duro,” featuring Farruko. The latter track vaults 22-13, a new peak, on the latest chart.
