Plus, Lunay scores first Top Latin Albums top 5 with debut set “Epico.”
Jefnier Osorio Moreno, known professionally as Lunay, scores his second No. 1 on Billboard‘s Latin Airplay chart, as “Aventura,” with Ozuna and Anuel AA, arrives at the summit on the Nov. 9-dated chart. Ozuna and Anuel AA, meanwhile, clock their 15th and sixth No. 1, respectively.
The second single from Épico, Lunay’s first LP, which debuts at No. 2 on the Top Latin Albums and Latin Rhythm Albums charts, crowns Latin Airplay with 14.3 million in audience impressions earned in the week ending Nov. 3, according to Nielsen Music.
The song’s coronation was aided by aggressive airplay support by eight SBS-owned radio stations in the New York, Los Angeles, Miami and Puerto Rico markets, which accounted for 96% of the song’s total weekly audience.
“Aventura” becomes 19-year-old Lunay’s second No. 1 on Latin Airplay, following the two-week reign of “Soltera,” with Daddy Yankee and Bad Bunny, in July. “Soltera” was released as the first single off Épico and earned the Puerto Rico native his first No. 1 on Latin Airplay in his second try; all of his three chart entries have arrived in 2019.
“Aventura” also makes progress on other Latin charts, as it debuts at No. 11 on the Hot Latin Songs survey, which blends airplay, streaming and sales data. Further, it opens at No. 1 on Latin Digital Song Sales (2,000 downloads sold in the week ending Oct. 31).
Meanwhile, Epico, produced by Chris Jeday and Gaby Music, earns the reggeaton and Latin trap singer his first top five entry, in his first visit, on both Top Latin Albums and Latin Rhythm Albums. The full-length, released Oct. 25 via Star Island, launches with 9,000 equivalent album units, with most of its opening sum attributed to streaming activity.
Top Latin Albums and Latin Rhythm Albums rank the most popular Latin albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units comprise traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).
Of Épico‘s overall starting sum, the set generated almost 8,000 in SEA units. The latter sum equates to 10.57 million on-demand audio streams for its songs in the week ending Oct. 31.
On the all-genre Billboard 200, Épico kicks off at No. 79, marking Lunay’s first appearance.
