Vicente Fernández

It's a bittersweet day for all Vicente Fernánez fans. On Friday (Sept. 9), the Mexican superstar and icon, known as "El Rey de la Ranchera" (The King of Ranchera music), released his new album Un Azteca En El Azteca, his last studio LP.

The special album includes live performances of his greatest classics like "Por tu maldito amor," "Volver, volver," "Mujeres divinas," "Hermoso cariño" and "El rey," among others, during a historical concert in Mexico City's Estadio Azteca back in April.

Throughout his career, which has spanned more than 50 years, the living legend has become one of Billboard's biggest chart-topping artists. On the Regional Mexican Airplay chart, Don Chente has seven No.1s, including "Borracho te recuerdo," Para siempre" and "Nos estorbó la ropa." The Grammy- and Latin Grammy-winning artist ties with Gerardo Ortiz for most leaders on the list.

Over on the Regional Mexican Albums chart, the ranchera music idol holds the most No. 1s among solo acts, with 16. The longest-running No. 1 album on the chart is Para Siempre (2007), which includes hits like "Estos celos," "La derrota" and "El último beso." It stayed at No. 1 for a total of 18 weeks. 

Below is a list of all his albums that have peaked at No. 1 on the chart, in order of date.
