Luis Coronel Youngest to Top Latin Albums Chart in 13 Years

The 18-year old Regional Mexican singer arrives atop Latin Albums with 'Quiero Ser Tu Dueño'

Eighteen-year old Regional Mexican singer Luis Coronel becomes the youngest solo artist in 13 years to hit No. 1 on Top Latin Albums (throughout the 21-year history of the chart), with his sophomore album Quiero Ser Tu Dueño. The set arrives with 10,000 copies sold in the week ending Oct. 5 (according to Nielsen SoundScan). A fellow Regional Mexican act, Jessie Morales, was the last 18-year-old to achieve the feat when Homenaje A Chalino Sanchez opened atop the chart in 2001. (When Morales reached No. 1, he was about three months younger than Coronel.)

Luis Coronel: 21 Under 21

Quiero Ser Tu Dueño enters with double the first week sales of Coronel's debut album, Con La Frente En Alto (5,000), which landed at No. 2 in 2013. "It's a dream come true," Coronel said in an earlier interview with Billboard about his rise in music. "I promised my dad before he passed away that I would take care of the family. [Now] I'm able to give my mom a house … and that's because of the singing. I feel blessed."

The first single from the new album, "Tenerte," spends a fourth consecutive week at No. 15 on Hot Latin Songs, where it peaked at No. 9 on Aug. 23. The track spent three weeks atop Regional Mexican Airplay where it currently steps 6-5, with a 3 percent gain (to 7.5 million audience impressions, according to Nielsen BDS).

Elsewhere on the charts, on Latin Airplay, Romeo Santos leaps 7-1 scoring his ninth chart-topper with "Eres Mia." The song takes Greatest Gainer honors as it hikes 32 percent to 13.5 million audience impressions. The song is Santos' third to top the list from Formula, Vol. 2, his second solo album. On Hot Latin Songs, the track continues at No. 2 for a 12th consecutive week, rising 11 percent in streaming (to 860,000 domestic streams), with Spotify logging 19 percent of overall clicks.

Rising 3-1 on Regional Mexican Airplay, Banda Sinaloense MS de Sergio Lizarraga attains its second No. 1 with "No Me Pidas Perdon." The song skips 4 percent at the format (to 10.2 million audience impressions), as it reaches its peak in its 18th week on the chart. On Hot Latin Songs, the track remains at No. 4 for a fourth uninterrupted week.

On Tropical Airplay, Pitbull lands his sixth No. 1 as "Como Yo Le Doy," featuring Don Miguelo, bounds 10-1. The track jumps 75 percent at the format (to 551 spins) led by WLZL Washington, D.C. (84). Miguelo grasps his first No. 1 with the climb, having previously peaked in 2006 when "Ma' Taide" reached No. 12.
