For the first time in the 24-year history of the Top Latin Albums chart, a collaborative album from two women is No. 1. Gloria Trevi and Alejandra Guzman’s team-up on Versus arrives atop the July 22-dated list with 8,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending July 6, according to Nielsen Music. (Nearly all of that sum was driven by traditional album sales.)
J Balvin & Willy William Launch to Top Five: Meanwhile, J Balvin teams up with Willy Williams on “Mi Gente” to debut at No. 3 on Hot Latin Songs. The single’s arrival is driven mostly by streaming activity, and it earns Balvin his eighth top five hit on the chart, while Williams scores his first hit. “Mi Gente” also debuts on the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 70.
J. Lo Scores 17th Hot Latin Songs Hit: Jennifer Lopez’s new single “Ni Tu Ni Yo,” featuring Gente de Zona, bows at No. 32 on Hot Latin Songs. It’s the diva’s 17th chart hit, and also enters at No. 4 on Latin Digital Song Sales (5,000 downloads sold). The track’s music video premiered July 11, so the tune will likely see a video-streams-driven rise up the July 29-dated chart.
The song’s title translates to “neither you nor I” and is set to appear on the diva’s first Spanish-language language album in 10 years, Por Primera Vez, in September.
