Saturno, published Nov. 11 via Sony Music Latin, starting with 19,000 equivalent album units earned in the US for the week ending Nov. 17, according to Luminate. Most of the set’s opening tally includes streaming activity, accounting for 25.63 million on-demand official streams of the album’s songs, while 500 units come from album sales and track-equivalent album units.
On the multimetric Top Latin Albums chart, each unit corresponds to 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 consists of rhythmic, dance and R&B infused tunes compared to its Latin trap predecessor, Trap Cake, Vol. 2. The latter reached No. 6 on the 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. Earlier, Vise versa took him to a No. 17 high there. Elsewhere, Saturno is simultaneously launched at No. 2 on Latin Rhythm Albums.
The new album was preceded by two songs on the multimeter Hot Latin Songs chart, starting with “Punto 40,” featuring Baby Rasta, which peaks at No. 11 on the current Greatest Gainer/Streaming track of the week. “Lokera,” featuring Lyanno and Braray, meanwhile, holds its No. 12 peak for a second week.
As Saturno arrives, four of the songs on the album debut on airplay, streaming data and digital sales mixed accounts. Plus, “Dime Quién???” comes back in at a no. 36 high.
