Latin music has been experiencing a huge boom in the U.S. for quite some time, and Bad Bunny is one of the artists responsible for putting it back on the map. He set another major milestone with his latest album El Último Tour del Mundo, the first all-Spanish record to ever top the U.S. Billboard 200 chart.

Several Latin artists, including Jennifer Lopez and Ricky Martin, gave us no. 1 albums in the past, but none of them were Spanish-language records. Bad Bunny’s latest LP is actually only the fourth all-Spanish album to make it to the top five, after his own album YHLQMDLG, Mana’s Amar es Combatir and Shakira’s Fijación Oral: Vol. 1.

In addition to topping the Billboard 200 chart this week, with 116,000 equivalent album units earned, the album did pretty well on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Bad Bunny’s latest single “Dakiti” featuring Jhay Cortez hit no. 5, becoming his third single to make it to the top five in the U.S..

El Último Tour del Mundo was released on November 27th, and it already produced several more hit songs, including the Rosalía collaboration “La Noche de Anoche” and “Yo Visto Así”, which was promoted with a star-studded video, featuring Ricky Martin and Sofía Vergara.
