Danna Paola Scores First Top 10 on Latin Pop Albums Chart With ‘K.O. (Knockout)’

Mexican artist Danna Paola secures her first top 10 on the Latin Pop Albums chart as K.O. (Knockout) arrives at No. 9 on the Jan. 30 survey. It’s her highest entry on the tally, following Sie7e+, a No. 16 peak (April 2020).

K.O., released Jan. 13 via Universal Music Latino/UMLE, earned 1,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Jan. 21, (up 153%), according to MRC Data, mostly deriving from streaming activity. Danna Paola’s sixth studio album logged 1.3 million on-demand streams of the album’s songs.  (As the album was released on Jan. 13, it had two days of activity in the previous chart week, ending Jan. 14, but didn’t have enough activity to reach the Latin Pop Albums chart.)

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

Danna Paola is  the first female solo act to debut in the top 10 on the Latin Pop Albums chart in 2021. She follows the late Selena’s No. 8 start with Selena: The Series, Music From the Netflix Original Series (chart dated Dec. 19, 2020). Who did it prior to her? Kali Uchis with Sin Miedo (Del Amor y Otros Demonios), her first chart appearance and first top 10 (No. 2 start, Nov. 28, 2020-dated survey).

Concurrently, Danna Paola is just the 10th female solo act alive to secure a top 10 debut on the tally since 2018 (Kany García records two entries). Let’s take a look:

Artist, Title, Debut Position, Debut Date

Natalia LaFourcade, Un Homenaje Al Folclore Latinoamericano En Manos de Los Macorinos 2, No. 5, February 2018
