‘A Mis 20’ sends ‘Corridos Tumbados’ to the runner-up slot.

Natanael Cano knocks himself out of the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Regional Mexican Albums chart as A Mis 20 debuts at No. 1, replacing Corridos Tumbados on the June 12-dated ranking. The latter spent 31 nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 since it bowed atop the list dated Nov. 16, 2019.

Cano’s sixth studio album starts with 5,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending June 3, according to MRC Data, mostly stemming from streaming activity. It registered 6.9 million on-demand streams of the album’s tracks in its first tracking week.

The Regional Mexican Albums chart ranks the most popular regional Mexican albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). Each unit equals one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams generated by songs from an album.

The 11-track A Mis 20 was released May 28 via JHRH/Warner Latina and earns Cano his second No. 1 on the tally. The 20-year-old becomes the first act to oust himself from the top since Christian Nodal’s Ahora pushed Me Dejé Llevar from the lead in May 2019.

Corridos Tumbados' 31 weeks at No. 1 remains the third-most on the chart following only Selena’s 97-week reign with Amor Prohibido and Nodal’s Me Dejé Llevar (73 weeks at No. 1).

A Mis 20 concurrently debuts at No. 9 on Top Latin Albums, Cano’s highest start since Corridos debuted at No. 5 (No. 4 peak). The latter is in the list’s top 30 in its 83rd week.

Back on Regional Mexican Albums, A Mis 20 becomes just the third album to debut at the summit in 2021. It trails Eslabon Armado’s Corta Venas (Jan 2-dated tally) and Cano’s labelmate Junior H’s $ad Boyz 4 Life (Feb. 27-dated list).
