Enrique Iglesias’ ‘Greatest Hits’ Debuts in Top 5 on Latin Pop Albums Chart


The 16-track set includes nine former Hot Latin Songs No. 1s.

Enrique Iglesias returns to the Latin Pop Albums chart’s top five as Greatest Hits opens at No. 3 on the Oct. 19-dated list. The greatest-hits album contains 16 songs spanning his 1999-2014 career, released Universal Music Latino/ UMLE on Oct. 4.

It’s Iglesias' chart comeback, as he last debuted on the tally in April 2014 when Sex & Love debuted at No. 1, where it remained for 33 nonconsecutive weeks. The new album earns Iglesias his 11th top 10, which dates back to his eponymous 11-week ruler in 1996.

Greatest Hits earned 3,000 in equivalent album units in the week ending Oct. 10, according to Nielsen Music, most of which are attributed to streaming activity.

Nine of the 15 songs ("Bailando" appears twice on the collection, in a Spanish version and in an English version) have reached No. 1 on Hot Latin Songs.

Here’s a rundown of those No. 1s:
