Chayanne dances his way back into the top 10 on Billboard’s Latin Pop Albums chart as Bailemos Otra Vez debuts at No. 3 on the Nov. 11-dated list. The set becomes his 15th top 10 and his first since 2014.

“It’s the greatest joy!” Chayanne tells Billboard. “I put heart, soul and all my energy into this project and it has rewarded me in the best way, which is the response from the public.”

Bailemos Otra Vez was released Oct. 27 via Sony Music Latin and launches on Latin Pop Albums with 4,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending Nov. 2, according to Luminate.

Of the 4,000-unit sum, 3,000 derive from album sales. Streaming activity contributes to 1,000 units, which equals to 1.43 million official on-demand audio and video streams for the album’s songs in its first week, while a negligible amount of activity comes from track-equivalent units. On Latin Pop Albums, one unit equals to one album sale, 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams for a song on the album.

With Bailemos Otra Vez, Chayanne logs his 15th top 10 — and 12th consecutive — dating back to his self-titled 1989 album, the No. 3-peaking Chayanne. In fact, the Puerto Rican tracks a multi-decade streak of albums that reached the top 10 since the ’80s, a feat achieved by only one other artist, Rocio Durcal, who has placed top 10s in the ‘80s, ‘90s, ’00, ‘10s and ‘20s.

Here’s a review of Chayanne’s collection of top 10s on Latin Pop Albums spanning five decades:

Beyond his Latin Pop Albums top 10 debut, Bailemos opens at No. 35 on Top Latin Albums, his first chart appearance since the No. 1-peaking En Todo Estaré en 2014.

Bailemos was preceded by two songs: “Te Amo y Punto,” which reached No. 6 high on Latin Pop Airplay in 2022, and “Bailando Bachata” which holds strong at No. 1 on Tropical Airplay for a 13th week. The latter ties with Marshmello and Manuel Turizo’s “El Merengue” for the most weeks at the lead there in 2023.

“I’ve always liked to have music and rhythms for all tastes,” Chayanne adds. “From this one, I love bachata. I have the tropical in my DNA, and with this album I wanted to wink at Mexico, a country that has always given me so much love and support, so I have a lot of faith in “Necesito Un Segundo.”
