The 14-track set also bows at No. 11 on Top Latin Albums chart.
Eladio Carrión locks his second top 10 on the Latin Rhythm Albums chart (dated Jan. 23) as Monarca arrives at No. 8. The 14-track set is the follow up to Carrión’s first and only entry up to date on any Billboard chart: Sauce Boyz earned him his first top 10 on both Latin Rhythm Albums and the all-genre Top Latin Albums chart (Feb. 2020).
“It feels great just to know that more and more people like the projects I put out,” the Kansas-born Puerto Rican-based act tells Billboard. “I put so much heart into everything I release, so is very satisfying when you get good feedback.”
Monarca was released Jan. 8 via Rimas Entertainment. It starts in the top 10 with 5,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Jan. 14, according to MRC Data. Its opening sum is mostly driven by streaming activity. Monarca registered 5,000 streaming equivalent album units, which equates to 7.3 million streams generated by the songs in the album’s opening week.
