Draco Rosa Debuts at No. 1 on Latin Pop Albums Chart With 'Monte Sagrado'
The set is Rosa’s first chart-topper in five years.
Draco Rosa celebrates his second No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Pop Albums chart as Monte Sagrado, his 13th studio album, debuts in the top slot, on the chart dated Nov. 10.
The set bows with 2,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Nov. 1, according to Nielsen Music. Most of those units can be attributed to traditional album sales.
“Monte Sagrado is a celebration of life and gratitude,” Rosa tells Billboard. “I’m overwhelmed with the amount of love it has received from everyone.”
The Puerto Rican artist returns to the top of the list after five and a half years. He first landed atop the tally with Vida, his 12th studio album, which opened at the summit in April 2013 and reigned for two weeks. Vida is Rosa's longest-charting title among eight entries; it remained on the chart for a total of 25 weeks, 17 of which were in the top 10.
Monte, released via Sony Music Latin on Oct. 26, benefits from sales generated by an in-store album-signing appearance in Puerto Rico on Oct. 27, as the set also scores a No. 1 debut on the Latin Albums Sales chart. It opens at No. 9 on Top Latin Albums and No. 17 on Rock Album Sales.
La Arrolladora Banda El Limón and Los Sebastianes log new top 10s: La Arrolladora Banda El Limón de Rene Camacho clock their 26th top 10 on the Regional Mexican Songs airplay chart, as “No He Logrado Aprender” lifts 11-8. The song collects 4 million in audience impressions in the week ending Nov. 4, a 9 percent gain.
The group achieves its third top 10 of 2018, after "Entre Beso y Beso," which ruled for eight consecutive weeks (Jan. 13-March 3), and "Calidad y Cantidad," which peaked at No. 3 (June 16).
Right below, Banda Los Sebastianes zooms 17-9 with "Através del Vaso." The song gains with a 25 percent boost (to 3.7 million impressions), becoming the act's second top 10. "En Vida" peaked at No. 6 on Feb. 3.
