Saturno, released Nov. 11 via Sony Music Latin, starts with 19,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending Nov. 17, according to Luminate. Most of the set’s opening sum comprises streaming activity, which equates to 25.63 million on-demand official streams of the album’s songs, while 500 units derive from album sales and track-equivalent album units.
On the multimetric Top Latin Albums chart, each unit equals one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams generated by songs from an album.
The 18-track Saturno is a left turn for Rauw, as the set comprises rhythmic, dance and R&B-peppered tunes, as compared to its Latin trap predecessor, Trap Cake, Vol. 2. The latter reached No. 6 on Top Latin Albums.
In addition to his No. 2 on the Top Latin Albums chart, Saturno also debuts at No. 25 on the all-genre Billboard 200. Previously, Vice Versa took him to a No. 17 high there. Elsewhere, Saturno concurrently launches at No. 2 on Latin Rhythm Albums.
The new album was preceded by two songs on the multimetric Hot Latin Songs chart, starting with “Punto 40,” with Baby Rasta, which peaks at No. 11 on the current ranking as the Greatest Gainer/Streaming track of the week. “Lokera,” with Lyanno and Brray, meanwhile, holds at its No. 12 peak for a second week.
As Saturno arrives, four of the songs of the album debut on the airplay-, streaming data-, and digital sales-blended tally. Plus, “Dime Quién???” re-enters at a No. 36 high.
