Mon Laferte & Piso 21 Hit Top Five on Latin Pop Albums Chart


Chilean singer Mon Laferte notches her first top five-charting set on Latin Pop Albums as her 2017 album La Trenza surges 11-4 in its fifth tracking week. On the overall Top Latin Albums tally, it vaults 50-12 — the biggest jump on the chart since December.

The set earned 2,000 equivalent album units in the week ending May 17 (up 126 percent), according to Nielsen Music. Most that sum was driven by traditional album sales (up 167 percent). The title rallies thanks largely to sales generated by an in-store performance and album-signing appearance at Amoeba Music in Los Angeles on May 15.

La Trenza previously topped out at No. 10 on Latin Pop Albums for one week (May. 12).

La Trenza takes a striking 38-rank climb on the Top Latin Albums chart, as the set surges 50-12. It logs the largest positional jump since Puerto Rican Banco Popular’s compilation, Nuestra Isla, Nuestro Encanto surged 40 positions (45-5) on the Dec. 30, 2017- dated tally. 

Concurrently, La Trenza leads the Latin Album Sales chart, jumping 7-1.

Piso 21 Debuts on Top Latin Albums and Latin Pop Albums chart: Colombian pop quartet Piso 21 arrives at No. 5 on Latin Pop Albums and No. 13 on Top Latin Albums with Unbuntu — the group's first charting album.

The set earned 2,000 equivalent album units in the week ending May 17 — with nearly all that sum driven by streams.

Unlike Laferte, who has yet to chart on the Latin Airplay chart, Piso 21's album was preceded by two hit singles. "Me Llamas," featuring Maluma, which peaked at No. 39 in Feb. 2017 and "Dejala Que Vuelva," featuring Manuel Turizo, which has reached No. 8 (March 24, 2018).
