Jhay Cortez’s ‘Timelezz’ Arrives at No. 2 on Top Latin Albums Chart
Timelezz starts with 11,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending Sept. 9, according to MRC Data. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). 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.
Of the album’s opening-week total, 10,000 units derive from streaming activity. That represents 14.7 million on-demand U.S. streams of the set’s tracks.
A combination of reggaetón, trap and a nod to techno and EDM, the 17-track Timelezz was released Sept. 3 via Universal Music Latino/UMLE. While Famouz launched at No. 164 in May 2020 on the all-genre Billboard 200, Timelezz marks a big leap for Cortez, bowing at No. 70 on the current chart.
As Timelezz arrives, one of its songs debuts on Hot Latin Songs: “Ley Seca,” with Anuel AA, at No. 12. The album previously yielded four other tracks on the airplay-, digital sales-, and streaming-blended list, starting with “Kobe En L.A.” (No. 44 debut and peak, November), “Los Bo,” with Myke Towers, (No. 40 debut and peak, Jan. 21), “Christian Dior” (No. 28 peak, June 26) and “En Mi Cuarto,” with Skrillex (No. 22 high, Aug. 14).
Timelezz concurrently starts at No. 2 on Latin Rhythm Albums.
