Eladio Carrion’s ‘Monarca’ Lands in Top 10 on Latin Rhythm Albums Chart

Latin Rhythm Albums ranks the most popular Latin rhythmic albums of the week in the

Latin Rhythm Albums ranks the most popular Latin rhythmic albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units comprise traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).

“The most difficult part of the production of the album was probably finding out what direction to take with each track,” Carrión adds. “I co-produced most of the songs on the album so giving that direction, making songs from scratch, was probably the most challenging part but was also super fun.”

Monarca trails the 26-year-old’s only entry on any Billboard chart. Sauce Boyz, his breakthrough album, packed with high-profile Latin urban collaborators, earned him his first and highest ranking on a Billboard chart as the set debuted -and peaked- at No. 6 (Feb. 16, 2020) on Latin Rhythm Albums. It concurrently bowed at No. 8 on Top Latin Albums. Monarca starts at No. 11 on the latter.

Like its predecessor, the 14-track set features a cocktail of contemporaries, including J Balvin, Yandel and Cazzu, with whom he collaborated in his maiden effort.

“Each collab was incredible for me,” he muses. “Each artist blessed the track just like I imagined they would or even better but hearing Balvin rapping on a drill beat was hard though, he killed it. Everyone did.”
