Juanes earns his seventh No. 1 on the Latin Pop Albums chart (dated Dec. 7) as Más Futuro Que Pasado arrives in the penthouse. It’s his fourth straight debut at the summit, which also debuts at No. 9 on the overall Top Latin Albums chart.
“I am dearly grateful to all my fans around the world who continue to allow me to share my feelings through my songs,” Juanes tells Billboard. “I am forever grateful.”
His eighth studio album becomes Juanes’ eighth straight top 10 debut on the Top Latin Albums chart which 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).
Más Futuro opens with 4,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Nov. 28, according to Nielsen Music. Out of that sum, 2,000 were in traditional album sales while a little over 1,000 account for SEA units. The latter equates to 2 million on-demand audio streams for its songs in its first tracking week.
Más Futuro follows Mis Planes Son Amarte, a former one-week ruler on both Top Latin Albums and Latin Pop Albums charts.
The new set, released Nov. 22 via Universal Music Latino/UMLE, was preceded by three songs that hit the Hot Latin Songs chart -which blends airplay, digital sales and streaming data: “Pa Dentro” (No. 41 peak. July 21), “La Plata,” featuring Colombian reggaetón act Lalo Ebratt (No. 40, March 16) and “Bonita,” with Yatra (No. 27 peak, Nov. 23).
The band’s fourth studio album arrives a year after The Green Trip opened at No. 1 and reigned for four consecutive weeks.
The Del Records-released set opens with 2,000 equivalent album units, most of which stem from streaming activity. Good Vibes registered a little less than 2,000 SEA. Concurrently, Good Vibes also debuts at No. 26 on Top Latin Albums.
One of the set’s songs has received reception on Hot Latin Songs: “En Boca De Todos,” a No. 33 peak high (Nov. 16-dated chart).
