Plus, Shakira earns her seventh No. 1 on Latin Pop Albums.
Shakira scores the biggest sales week for a Latin album in more than two years, as her latest LP El Dorado bows at No. 1 on the Latin Album Sales chart (dated June 17) with 20,000 copies sold in the week ending June 1, according to Nielsen Music.
The last Latin album to sell more than El Dorado was Gerardo Ortiz’s Hoy Mas Fuerte on the June 5, 2015-dated chart, which debuted at No. 1 with slightly more copies (also rounding out to 20,000). El Dorado is Shakira’s sixth No. 1 on the Latin Album Sales chart and eighth top five.
El Dorado also arrives at No. 1 on the Latin Pop Albums chart with 29,000 equivalent album units earned, earning the singer her seventh No. 1 on the list. She now holds the record for most No. 1 Latin Pop Albums among women; she was previously tied with Thalia, with six.
