Regional Mexican and banda singer Luis Coronel debuts at No. 2 on Top Latin Albums (dated Nov. 11) with his third studio album, Ahora Soy Yo, opening with 6,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Oct. 26, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 5,000 were in traditional album sales.
The set is Coronel’s third top five-charting effort, following his last studio set, the chart-topper Quiero Ser Tu Dueño in 2014 (one week at No. 1) and his No. 2-peaking debut Con La Frente En Alto in 2013.
Ahora Soy Yo’s first-week sales were aided by a series of in-store appearances by Coronel and gives the singer the second-best sales frame for a Regional Mexican set this year. It trails only the arrival of Christian Nodal’s Me Deje Llevar (6,000).
Coronel’s album was led by a pair of top 10 hits on the Regional Mexican Airplay chart: “Dime Qué Se Siente,” which peaked at No. 4 in April, and “Tal Como Eres,” which hit No. 9 in October.
Over on the Regional Mexican Albums chart, Ahora Soy Yo opens at No. 1, giving the 21-year-old his third straight chart topper, following his first two releases.
Valenzuela’s Fifth Top Five Hit: Elsewhere on Regional Mexican Songs, singer Remmy Valenzuela rises 12-10 on the chart with “Loco Enamorado” (4.7 million in audience in the week ending Oct. 29, up 10 percent). It’s Valenzuela’s fifth top 10 effort. The song concurrently jumps 39-27 on Hot Latin Songs.
CNCO’s ‘Mamita’ Debuts: Elsewhere, CNCO picks up its fifth hit on the Hot Latin Songs chart, debuting at No. 42 with “Mamita.” The track — which was released on Oct. 20 — is the first offering from the boy band’s upcoming album, due out in 2018. “Mamita’s” debut is driven almost entirely by streams and download sales (2,000 sold in the week ending Oct. 26), with only a smattering of airplay.
Becky G’s a Gainer: Becky G‘s “Mayores,” featuring Bad Bunny, holds at its No. 5 peak on Hot Latin Songs, but posts gains in airplay, sales and streams, earning the chart’s Greatest Gainer trophy for the week. The track likely increases following Becky G’s hosting duties on the Oct. 26 Latin American Music Awards (broadcast live on ABC), as well as her performance of the song on the show alongside Bad Bunny. The track is up 14 percent in downloads (3,000 sold) and 5 percent in streams (6 million).
