CNCO Nabs Third Latin Pop Albums No. 1 With ‘Que Quienes Somos’ EP


Plus, Nicky Jam and Sech’s ‘Atrévete’ hits top 10 on Latin Rhythm Airplay.

As CNCO’s Que Quiénes Somos debuts at No. 1 on the Latin Pop Albums chart dated Oct. 26, the quintet scores its third straight No. 1.

The 7-track EP follows CNCO's two previous No. 1s: Primera Cita, the group’s debut full-length effort (No. 1, Sept. 2016), and its eponymous set (No. 1, April 2016), both which ruled for eight and three weeks, respectively.

The set, released Sony Music Latin on Oct. 11, earned a little over 3,000 in equivalent album units in the week ending Oct. 17, according to Nielsen Music. The overall sum was powered by traditional album sales (2,000 copies sold, digital downloads) and by streaming activity. The CD edition of the album was released on Oct. 18, and its sales will impact the Nov. 2-dated chart.

The Latin Pop Albums chart ranks the most popular Latin pop albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).

Quienes Somos collected 1,000 in SEA units which equates to 2.89 million on-demand audio streams earned for the album’s tracks in its first week.

Concurrently, Quienes Somos earns CNCO its third Top Latin Albums chart entry as it opens at No. 12.

The EP’s arrival is concurrent with a rise for CNCO on the Latin Airplay chart. “De Cero,” the set’s lead single, moves 43-41 after its No. 37 peak high (Oct. 5).

Meanwhile, Nicky Jam and Sech’s new collaborative song “Atrévete” jumps 12-10 on the Latin Rhythm Airplay chart.

The Flow Music-produced song lifts with an 8% increase in audience impressions (to 7 million) earned in the week ending Oct. 20. It continues its Latin Airplay chart rise with a 15-14 climb.

With the move, Nicky Jam now ties with Pitbull for the seventh-most top 10s on the Latin Rhythm Airplay chart, both with 21.
