Longest-Leading No. 1s on the Top Latin Albums Chart: Bad Bunny, Selena, & More
Music distribution has changed over the years, and so has the way it’s consumed, but one thing remains certain: Whether it’s popping a disc into your CD player or downloading an entire track list to your phone, music obsessives love albums.
With Hispanic Heritage Month still in full swing, Billboard has put together all of the longest-leading No. 1 albums in the history of the Top Latin Albums chart, all of which have spent 20 weeks or more at the top. The list includes everything from albums that we were obsessed with in the ’90s, such as Selena’s Dreaming of You and Luis Miguel’s Segundo Romance to almost all of Bad Bunny’s sets of the last decade, including X100PRE and Un Verano Sin Ti.
Topping the list is Bunny’s YHLQMDLG, released just weeks before the global pandemic lockdown in 2020. The album, home to tracks such as “Safaera” and “Yo Perreo Sola,” peaked at No. 1 on March 14, 2020, and reigned on the chart for 70 weeks. The ultra-perreo set is followed by Gloria Estefan’s ultra-personal Mi Tierra, which peaked at No. 1 on July 10, 1993, and spent 58 weeks at the top.
Check out the complete list below.
The 20 longest-leading No. 1s on the Top Latin Albums chart recap is based on most weeks at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Top Latin Albums chart from the ranking’s first chart week, July 10, 1993, through the Oct. 8, 2022-dated chart. For albums with the same number of weeks at No. 1, ties were broken by the most total weeks spent on the chart.
