Becky G debuts at No. 3 on Billboard’s Regional Mexican Albums chart (dated Sept. 14) with Esquinas. The Edgar Barrera-produced album is Becky G’s first entry on the Regional Mexican Albums tally, after notching previous entries on Billboard‘s Latin Pop Albums and Latin Rhythm Albums rankings. The new set concurrently debuts at No. 7 on the overall Top Latin Albums chart.

Esquinas was released Sept. 28 via Kemosabe/RCA and launches at No. 3 on Regional Mexican Albums with 11,000 equivalent album units earned in the tracking week ending Oct. 5 in the U.S., according to Luminate. Streaming powers nearly all the album’s first week, with 10,000 of them from the consumption method. That equals to 14.1 million official on-demand streams for the album’s songs.


Esquinas is Becky G’s third full-length album and first appearance on Regional Mexican Albums. The 13-track set’s title, which translates to “corners,” references the intersection between her American style with her Mexican roots. It includes collabs by Peso Pluma, Ivan Cornejo, Gabito Ballesteros, Yahritza y Su Esencia, Chiquis and DannyLux. The album’s cover art was revealed through Becky G’s Instagram account on Sept. 12: “I could not be more excited to share the cover of my new album Esquinas…” she posted, with a baby photo of herself on braids, a sombrero, and a red bandana covering her chest.

Esquinas finds the 26-year-old artist at a crossroads of two cultures, a sketch which shows throughout her Billboard chart career spanning over a decade. The album also gifts Becky G with two top 10 albums after the rhythmic Mala Santa (No. 3 high on Top Latin Albums and Latin Rhythm Albums, 2019) which included team-ups with Bad Bunny, Sech, Natti Natasha, and others, while the pop-filled Esquemas (eight-week champ on Latin Pop Albums, 2022) added partnerships with Karol G, El Alfa and Guaynaa.

As mentioned, Esquinas also bows at No. 7 on Top Latin Albums, after Esquemas debuted and reached No. 5 high in May 2022. Meanwhile, it earns her third chart appearance on the overall Billboard 200, at No. 109.

As Esquinas lands, two songs debut across Latin charts: “2do Chance,” with Ivan Cornejo, one of two pop songs on the album, launches at No. 34 on the multimetric Hot Latin Songs tally, fueled by streaming activity; it logged 2.7 million U.S. clicks during the same tracking week. Meanwhile, “Por El Contrario,” with siblings Leonardo Aguilar and Angela Aguilar, debuts at No. 19 on Latin Digital Songs.
