J Balvin’s new album Vibras has racked up the most first-week global streams for a Latin album ever on Apple Music, replacing week one of Romeo Santos’ 2017 project Golden. Vibras also claims the record for the most-streamed Latin album in 24 hours on Apple Music so far in 2018.
On the Billboard charts, the album notched the biggest week of 2018 for a Latin album so far with its No. 1 debut on the Top Latin Albums chart and No. 15 bow on the Billboard 200. The week of its release, Vibras was highlighted as one of the best albums of the week in our Viva Friday article, which is a compilation of new songs, albums and videos recommended by the Billboard Latin editors.
“I just want to make music for the world,” the Colombian singer told Beats 1’s Ebro Darden before he released the album.
