Banda Sinaloense MS de Sergio Lizarraga takes the No. 1 debut on the Top Latin Albums chart (dated Feb. 27) as the group’s latest set, Que Bendicion, enters with 8,000 copies sold in the week ending Feb. 11 (according to Nielsen Music).
The arrival marks the best sales week for a regional Mexican album since June 2015 when Gerardo Ortiz’s Hoy Mas Fuerte (20,000 copies), and biggest selling week for a regional Mexican group since Intocable debuted at No. 1 with En Peligro de Extincion (8,000 sold) in April 2013.
The release of the new album spurs four of its tracks onto Regional Mexican Digital Songs, joining six of the band’s currently charting songs. Banda Sinaloense becomes only the fourth act to score 10 or more simultaneously ranking tracks on the chart, along with Jenni Rivera (24 concurrent songs), Joan Sebastian (12), and Selena (10). The group also continues at No. 2 on Hot Latin Songs for a fourth straight week with single “Solo Con Verte.”
