The quartet’s second studio album follows its debut studio effort, Del Barrio Hasta Aquí, which earned the band its first top 10 on the survey in July 2019.
“We switched it up, we gave the fans something they weren’t expecting,” lead singer Jesus Ortiz Paz tells Billboard. “From instruments to features, we used the piano as the intro to Adicto. Our last album had no features.”
Produced by Ortiz Paz and YelloRoom Music producer Edgar Rodríguez (Jenni Rivera, Gerardo Ortiz, Natanael Cano), Adicto bows at No. 4 on Top Latin Albums with 5,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending April 16, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. Nearly all the album’s opening sum was attributed to streaming activity.
Top Latin Albums ranks the most popular Latin albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units comprise traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).
Adicto registered 6.8 million on-demand streams in its debut week.
The 11-track urban corrido album, released April 10 via Lumbre/Rancho Humilde, concurrently opens at No. 1 on the Regional Mexican Albums list. It’s the act’s second No. 1 on the list, following Del Barrio Hasta Aquí, which led the list for 18 consecutive weeks (July 13-Nov. 9, 2019-dated lists).
Del Barrio is in its 42nd week on Top Latin Albums (at No. 26 on the current chart) and remains in the top five on Regional Mexican Albums chart (No. 4). It has yet to depart the top five of the list since its debut at No. 1 on the July 13, 2019-dated chart.
