Bad Bunny created quite a splash with his latest album Un Verano Sin Ti, and he’s still pushing boundaries over four months since dropping this record. Verano scored its eleventh week atop the Billboard 200 chart this week, notching most weeks at no. 1 since 2016.

Un Verano Sin Ti returned to no. 1 with 97,000 equivalent album units earned in the US during its latest week on the chart. It stopped several brand-new albums from reaching the top spot, including NAV’s Demons Protected by Angels, Ozzy Osbourne’s Patient Number 9, and Kane Brown’s Different Man.

This marks Verano’s eleventh non-consecutive week at no. 1 since 2016 when Drake’s Views logged 13 non-consecutive weeks atop the Billboard 200. If its chart domination continues for two more weeks, he could tie Drake’s record—or maybe even break it!

Un Verano Sin Ti hit the shelves on May 6, and it was only the second all-Spanish language album to ever top the Billboard 200 when it debuted at no. 1 with 274,000 album-equivalent units. Its chart domination continued in the months to come, and Verano kept setting new grounds and became the first album in the history of the Billboard 200 to spend its first 18 weeks on the chart in the top two.
