Bad Bunny’s journey to the top spot on the Billboard 200 chart wasn’t a short one, but his time to shine is finally here. The Puerto Rican reggaeton star made it to no. 1 with his latest LP El Último Tour del Mundo, the first all-Spanish language album to ever top the Billboard 200 in the U.S.
This album made it to no. 1 with 116,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S., but that’s not the only impressive thing about it. El Último Tour del Mundo isn’t even Bad Bunny’s first album to achieve huge success this year—his previous record YHLQMDLG was released in February and debuted at no. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Another thing that makes the chart-topping success of this record so monumental is the fact it had to beat tough competition to reach the no. 1 spot. Miley Cyrus’ Plastic Hearts came out the same day but ultimately took the no. 2 spot on the charts this week.
El Último Tour del Mundo is also the first all-Spanish language album to ever top the U.S. Billboard 200, and only one of four to make it to the top 5, following Bad Bunny’s YHLQMDLG, Mana’s Amar es Combatir, and Shakira’s Fijación Oral: Vol. 1.
