Mexican social media superstar and singer Kim Loaiza earns her first entry on a Billboard album chart as her debut set, X Amor, opens at No. 9 on the Latin Pop Albums chart (dated Dec. 30).

X Amor released Dec. 14 via Warner Latina, debuts in the top 10 with 2,000 equivalent units earned in the U.S. during the Dec. 15-21 tracking week, according to Luminate. Most of the set’s opening sum stems from streaming equivalent album units. That figure equates to 2.82 million on-demand official streams of the album’s tracks for its debut week.

X Amor‘s arrival on the chart follows Loaiza’s first record deal with a major label, however, it bows amidst controversy.

X Amor debuts on the charts a week after Loaiza announced she was walking away from the internet and quitting music following a number of controversies that broke out on Monday, Dec. 18. Those included accusations of plagiarizing Karol G (which she denied on X) and sabotaging Mexican singer-songwriter Kenia Os’ Mazatlán performance (she has not addressed the latter) and admitting on YouTube to lying about a break-up with her decade-long partner and artist JD Pantoja in order to generate publicity.

The 16-track album includes collaborations with Lit Killah, Noriel, Andy Rivera, Omar Montes, Julianno Sosa, Elvis de Yongol, and Pailita; the songs have yet to enter a Billboard chart. Ahead of X Amor on the Dec. 30-dated Latin Pop Albums chart are titles from Luis Fonsi, Becky G, Juan Gabriel, Rosalía, Enrique Iglesias, Kali Uchis, Mana and the late Selena.
