Anuel AA’s ‘LLNM2’ Debuts at No. 2 on Top Latin Albums Chart

Plus, three songs bow on Hot Latin Songs.

Anuel AA nets his fifth straight top five album on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart as his latest release, LLNM2, debuts at No. 2 on the Dec. 24-dated ranking. The Puerto Rican’s fourth solo studio album boasts the fifth-largest opening sum of 2022 among Latin albums.

LLNM2 starts with 23,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending Dec. 15, according to Luminate. The 33-track set was released Dec. 9 via Anuel’s label Real Hasta La Muerte.

Among all Latin albums in 2022 (anything that reached the Top Latin Albums chart), LLNM2 posts the fifth-largest opening sum, behind Bad Bunny’s Un Verano Sin Ti (273,000 units), Eslabon Armado’s Nostalgia (29,000), Daddy Yankee’s Legendaddy (29,000) and Romeo Santos’ Formula, Vol. 3 (26,000).


On the multi-metric Top Latin Albums chart as measured in equivalent album units, each unit equals one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams generated by songs from an album.

Streaming comprises 22,000 of LLNM2’s first-week units, which equates to 33 million on-demand official streams of the album’s songs. The remaining 1,000 stem from traditional album units and track-equivalent album units.

LLNM2 follows Anuel’s fourth-studio album, Las Leyendas Nunca Mueren, which debuted in Dec. 2021 at No. 1, where it remained for two weeks. Notably, Emmanuel, his second entry, holds strong at No. 31 on Top Latin Albums in its 133rd week on the tally.

As LLNM2 arrives, four tracks secure a spot on the multi-metric Hot Latin Songs chart, three debuts and a reentry, starting with “La Máquina” at No. 23. The song earned 2.75 million clicks in the tracking week ending in Dec. 15. Here are the new recruits:

No. 23, “La Máquina,” with Jowell & Randy & De La Ghetto, featuring Yailin La Mas Viral
No. 40, “BRRR”
No. 44, “Sufro,” with Kodak Black & Nengo Flow
No. 54, “Si Yo Me Muero” (reentry)

Elsewhere, LLNM2 debuts on the all-genre Billboard 200 at No. 30 and at No. 2 on Latin Rhythm Albums.
