The Top Latin Albums chart ranks the most popular Latin albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).
In addition to its Top Latin Albums placement, ADN also logs a top 10 start on both the Latin Rhythm Albums chart and on the Latin Album Sales chart, with an equal No. 8 debut.
Beyond ADN’s top 10 achievement, four tracks have hit the Hot Latin Songs chart, which blends airplay, streaming data and digital sales. “Una Lady Como Tú” leads the pack, peaking at No. 32 in October 2017, while “Esperándote” follows with a No. 39 peak (June 2018), continuing with “Sola” (No. 17 high, chart dated March 9) and “Esclavo de Tus Besos” with Ozuna, which peaked at No. 32 on the June 22-dated ranking.
Celso Piña Reaches Tropical Albums Chart After Death: Reactions to the death of Mexican singer-songwriter Celso Piña sends his 2001 album Barrio Bravo to the Tropical Albums chart as it debuts at No. 16 on the Sept. 7-dated tally following his death on Aug. 21. Piña died in his hometown Monterrey, Mexico of a heart attack at the age of 66.
It’s the first entry on any Billboard albums genre chart for the accordion player of cumbia rebajada who built his success through the fusion of tropical sounds with regional Mexican, cumbia sonidera, ska, reggae, hip-hop and even R&B.
Piña first scored a spot on the Latin Album Sales chart over a year ago, when Ritmo Contagioso, his collaborative effort with his group Su Ronda Bogotá, and groups La Misión Colombiana, Quimika Musical and La Tropa Colombiana, debuted and peaked at No. 2.
Barrio Bravo, which was released in 2001 via Metro Casa/ Warner Latina, opens on the Tropical Albums chart mainly on the strength of streaming activity.
