Karol G Breaks Global Records On Apple Music With ‘Ocean’ Album


Colombian singer Karol G has set new records with her sophomore album Ocean on Apple Music.

The set hit the No. 1 on the worldwide and U.S. female Latin album on Apple Music in its first 24 hours. Karol G surpassed Shakira’s El Dorado Day 1 record. 

The 16-track album topped Apple Music’s Top Latin Albums Chart in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Mexico, Spain, France, Chile, Belize, Armenia, Peru, Trinidad and Tobago, Cayman Islands, Sweden, Ecuador, Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland and Cyprus during the first 24 hours.

Also, the album is the No. 1 U.S. female Latin pre-added album to date and it is the second female Latin pre-added album worldwide.

Karol G officially released Ocean last Friday (May 3). The album fuses all kind of sounds, and of course it addresses romantic feelings towards her boyfriend Anuel AA.

“Basically, when you listen to my album, you won’t hear Karol G. You’ll [hear] Carolina, the person,” Karol G previously told Billboard.
