Bad Bunny’s ‘Un Verano Sin Ti’ Becomes Longest-Running No. 1 Album in Over Five Years

Bad Bunny’s ‘Un Verano Sin Ti’ has secured another nonconsecutive week at No. 1; this is its 11th appearance in that position out of the 19 weeks since its debut. A similar accomplishment hadn’t been accomplished since Drake’s “Views” spent 13 nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 in 2016.

Although the runs of “Views” and “Un Verano” were not consecutive, Bad Bunny has yet to go below a No. 2 position. According to Luminate through Billboard, “Un Verano” debuted with the equivalent of 97,000 album sales in the United States.

Harry Styles also sets a record by spending 14 weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 songs list. Lil Nas X’s hit song “Old Town Road,” featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, spent 19 weeks at the top of the chart in 2019. “As It Was” presently holds the record for the most weeks spent in the top two spots on the Hot 100, spending 23 of its 24 weeks on the chart there.

The previous No. 1 song from Nicki Minaj, “Super Freaky Girl,” rises from No. 7 to No. 3 thanks to the release of its “Queen Mix” remix; Post Malone’s “I Like It (A Happier Song),” featuring Doja Cat, creeps back into the Top 10; and Steve Lacy and “Bad Habit” continue to hold a No. 2 high.

Nicky Youre and Dazy’s “Sunroof” debuts at No. 4, while Lizzo’s “About Damn Time” drops from No. 5 to No. 7. I Ain’t Worried by OneRepublic stays at No. 8, “Late Night Talking” by Harry Styles jumps from No. 9 to No. 3, and Future’s “Wait for U,” which features Drake and Tems, returns to the top 10 from No. 11.

Nav’s “Demons Protected by Angels,” his sixth top-10-charting album on the Billboard 200, has debuted on the albums chart. The album debuted with 67,000 equivalent album units gained and contains Future, Gunna, Lil Durk, Lil Uzi Vert, and Travis Scott. The rock singer’s ninth top-10 charting album, “Patient Number 9,” debuted at No. 3 with 56,000 equivalent album units sold.

With 50,000 equivalent album units sold, Wallen’s former number-one album, “Dangerous: The Double Album,” drops from 2 to 4 (albeit that total increased 5% from the previous week). With “Different Man” debuting at No. 5 (46,000 album units sold), Kane Brown gets his fourth top 10, and YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s “Realer 2” jumps up to No. 6 following its first full charting week (39,000 album units sold).

Starting on September 6, “Realer 2” was accessible for streaming on YouTube, and on September 7, it was made widely available to all streamers. This alignment implies that its No. 71 Billboard 200 debut was only possible due to the fact that it was monitored for two days of activity on all streaming services and three days of activity on YouTube. With “Realer 2,” YoungBoy Never Broke Again has achieved his 11th top-10 album and fourth top 10 of 2022. He is the only artist this year with four brand-new top 10s.

Beyoncé’s “Renaissance” drops from 6 to 8 on the list with 37,000 album units (down 9%), Styles’ “Harry’s House” drops from 5 to 7, while Rod Wave’s “Beautiful Mind” likewise drops from 7 to 9 with 32,000 album sales (down 11%). Last but not least, Yeat’s “Lyfe,” which debuted at No. 10 on the Billboard 200 with 30,000 album units sold, completes the list. This is his second top-10 effort after this year’s “2 Alive.”
