Chiquis Rivera Notches Second No. 1 on Regional Mexican Albums Chart With ‘Entre Botellas’

Chiquis Rivera scores her second No. 1 on the Regional Mexican Albums chart (dated March 31) as the Mexican-American's sophomore effort Entre Botellas debuts atop the tally (3,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending March 22, according to Nielsen Music, of which nearly all are in traditional album sales). The album was released on March 16 via Rivera's own Sweet Sound label, through Sony Music Latin.

Rivera saw her debut set Ahora bow at No. 1 (June 20, 2015) with 7,000 copies sold, before the chart transitioned to a consumption units-based ranking in February of 2017.

Entre is the first album by a woman to debut at No. 1 on the Regional Mexican Albums chart since Chiquis’ late mother, Jenni Rivera, started atop the list dated Nov. 19, 2016 with Paloma Negra Desde Monterrey. In between Jenni and Chiquis, the only other album by a woman to lead the list was Selena’s 1994 album Amor Prohibido when the former chart-topper returned to No. 1 for one week on May 27, 2017.

Entre also launches at No. 4 on Top Latin Albums. Rivera saw her debut set Ahora bow at No. 1 on both Top Latin Albums and Regional Mexican Albums (June 20, 2015). 

Entre was preceded by three singles, two of which visited the Regional Mexican Songs airplay chart: “Horas Extras” peaked at No. 15 on the Jul. 7, 2017-dated chart (Rivera’s highest rank on the tally) and “Vas a Volver" hit No. 37 on Jan. 6, 2018.
