‘La Última Misión’ debuts at No. 9 on the tally.

Wisin & Yandel say farewell with a top 10 debut as La Última Misión arrives at No. 9 on Billboard’s Latin Rhythm Albums chart (dated Oct. 15). It’s the duo’s first chart appearance since 2018, following the No. 2 high Los Campeones del Pueblo/ The Big Leagues.
La Última Misión was released Sept. 30 via Sony Music Latin, the same date the pair’s 26-date arena tour kicked off in Miami’s FTX Arena. The Puerto Ricans announced their final album and tour after two decades as a group earlier this year via their Twitter accounts.
Misión starts in the upper region with 5,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Oct. 6, according to Luminate. Most of the album’s opening sum, that is 4,500 units, stems from streaming-equivalent album units, which equates to 6.6 million official on-demand streams of the album’s songs. The remainder 500 are through traditional album sales and track-equivalent-album units.
On the multi-metric Latin Rhythm Albums chart as measured in equivalent album units, each unit equals 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.
Misión gives Wisin & Yandel their 13th top 10 on Latin Rhythm Albums, seven of which crowned the chart, including the 41-week ruler La Revolución in 2009; the fifth-longest charting title at No. 1 since the tally launched in 2005.
Overall, the new leader extends Wisn & Yandel’s consecutive top 10 streak to six. The run began with the No. 1 debut of Los Vaqueros: El Regreso in 2011 (15 weeks atop) and continued with the 30-week champ Líderes in 2012. Four other top 10 sets followed, including Misión now. Before Vaqueros, the duo scored another set of six straight top 10 albums, among those another two-digit week ruler, Wisin Vs. Yandel: Los Extraterrestres (24 weeks in charge).
Elsewhere, Misión debuts at No. 14 on the Top Latin Albums chart.
The set was preceded by three tracks on Hot Latin Songs: “Chica Bombastic” (No. 50 debut and peak in 2019), “Ganas de Ti” (No. 49 debut and peak in 2020), and “Recordar” (No. 35 debut and peak in March).
As Misión arrives it yields one other song on the all-metric list: “Besos Moja2,” with Rosalía, at No. 44.
