For the first time in 10 months, the entire top three on the Top Latin Albums chart are all debuts, led by La Maquinaria Nortena’s third No. 1 (on the chart dated Aug. 20), Generacion Maquinaria Est. 2006. The latest albums from Justin Quiles and Ricardo Arjona round out the trio of new entries. The last time the chart greeted a top three filled with debuts was the Oct. 17, 2015-dated tally.
On the new chart, Generacion Maquinaria Est. 2006 sold 3,000 copies in the week ending August 4, according to Nielsen Music, earning the regional Mexican group its third chart-topper in a row. The album also crowns the Regional Mexican Albums chart, marking the band’s fourth No. 1. Lead single “Todo Es Diferente” spends a second week on Hot Latin Songs, jumping 49-42, aided in part by a four percent rise in airplay, to 4.2 million audience impressions in the tracking week ending August 7.
