2020 has really been a historic year for international acts on the Billboard 200 chart, and Bad Bunny just set another one of those major milestones. His latest album, El Último Tour del Mundo became the first all-Spanish language album to ever reach the top spot on this U.S. chart.

With 116,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. alone, Bad Bunny’s latest studio effort topped the Billboard 200 chart, becoming his second album in the top five this year, after YHLQMDLG.

To make the whole thing even more impressive, these are two of only four all-Spanish language albums to reach the top five in the U.S. The list also includes Mana’s Amar es Combatir and Shakira’s Fijación Oral: Vol. 1.

El Último Tour del Mundo was released on November 27th, and Bad Bunny managed to beat the likes of Miley Cyrus, BTS, and Ariana Grande to reach the top spot. He promoted its release with the hit single “Dákiti” featuring Jhay Cortez, and the music video for the song “Yo Visto Así”, which featured the cameos from Ricky Martin and Sofía Vergara.
