The king of Latin trap places 16 songs on Hot Latin Songs, the second-most in the chart’s history.

Bad Bunny starts the new year by remaining at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart (dated Jan. 12), as his surprise-release debut album X 100PRE holds the crown for a second chart week after its first full tracking week of activity.   

The set earned 36,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Jan. 3, according to Nielsen Music -- up 20 percent. The album opened at No. 1 on the Jan. 5-dated list from a partial week of activity (30,000 units in the week ending Dec. 27) after it arrived with little warning on Dec. 24 (a Tuesday, instead of the usual Friday for new albums, which is also the first day of Nielsen’s tracking week).

X 100PRE now owns two of the top three biggest weeks for a Latin album in the last 12 months and the largest among Latin titles in the last four months. Only Ozuna’s Aura has posted a larger frame in that time span, when it launched at No. 1 on the Sept. 8, 2018-dated list with 49,000 equivalent album units.

Simultaneously, on the Billboard 200 chart, X 100PRE speeds up the list, ascending 29-11.

With the set at the summit of the Top Latin Albums tally, five of the X 100PRE’s songs debut on the current Hot Latin Songs chart, which blends airplay, digital sales and streaming activity. Six other tracks entered on the Jan. 5-dated list.

All told, Bad Bunny has 16 songs on the new chart -- the second-most in the list’s history. Only Ozuna has claimed more concurrent titles: 21 on the Sept. 8, 2018, chart.

Concurrently, with the set’s opening single “NI BIEN NI MAL” gliding 16-8 on the current tracking list, Bad Bunny tallies four of the top 10 titles on the chart.
