BUNNY'S ENDLESS VERANO: A NEW MILESTONE

The unprecedented run of Bad Bunny's Un Verano Sin Ti (Rimas) continues. The set is now the biggest non-English-language album in U.S. history, surpassing 2.3m in activity last week.

The record was held for more than three decades by Linda Ronstadt's 1987 release Canciones de mi Padre (Asylum/Rhino). Ronstadt's landmark album of mariachi songs was certified double platinum last November by the RIAA. Since Canciones was released four years before the modern chart era, during which actual units are tabulated to determine ranking, there's something of a gray area surrounding the album's first few years of market activity. Industry-supplied data, the RIAA certification and streaming activity have led us to a total of just under 2.2 million.

Un Verano Sin Ti is the current #1 on the HITS Top 50 and is tracking to be the biggest album of 2022. No non-English-language album has ever finished the year on top. Will Bunny stay the course? Will Taylor Swift be the spoiler with her 10/21 release of Midnights (Republic)? We'll be standing by with our trusty abacus.
