Bad Bunny Albums Sales
Figures listed in this section reflect pure sales of long playing formats, either albums, compilations or videos. Streams are excluded.
On top of these original studio albums, the first 3 solo efforts came out as part of the box Anniversary Trilogy Box Set which moved 20,000 units.
Bad Bunny Songs Sales
Figures listed in this section reflect all metrics of songs’ sales, these are audio streams, video streams, and sales (physical singles, downloads, ringtones).
These numbers are converted into Equivalent Albums Sales (EAS), formula below.
( Spotify streams * Latin Ratio + Genie streams * 2.20 *2 + AWA streams * 68 / 4 + Anghama + Boomplay + Audiomack ) / 1500 + ( QQ views* 50(or 5) + YouTube views ) / 6750 + Digital sales (DL+RT) * 0.15 + Physical sales * 0.30
Latin Ratio = Spotify market share in Latin America minus Brazil is estimated at 77.5%. Bad Bunny gains 81% of his streams there. The US represent 16.3% of his streams, among which Spotify covers 48%. Elsewhere, the standard ratio of 649 / 406 is in use. All together, these numbers set the Latin Ratio at 72.40%.
In case a song was a non-Latin crossover, like Cardi B‘s I Like It or Drake‘s helped MIA, the standard ratio is used.
Please be aware that when the artist is regarded as the lead act, he is rewarded with 100% of these units, while featured acts share among them a 50% piece of the totals.

Bad Bunny stands at 44,589,000 equivalent album sales after a 6 years career.
He decided to entirely skip paid-for sales, barely releasing physical products and adopting the productivity that is a key to success in a streaming dominated industry. Few do it as well as him.
Singles CSPC results
The list is compiled in album equivalent sales generated by each song. Therefore, these figures are not merged units of singles formats. Instead, it includes weighted sales of the song’s physical single, download, ringtone and streaming as well as its share among sales of all albums on which it is featured.

UVST is such a fast climber. 11.5M units already. I hope it ends the year with 15M 🙂 that’d be amazing. It also has to crack 18M to surpass Laundry Service as the best selling latin album of the century I believe
I wouldn’t consider Laundry Service a proper Latin album. Correct me if I’m wrong but UVST should be the biggest of the century already. The overall spot is probably held by Luis Miguel or Julio Iglesias. Not sure how close UVST is to these since we haven’t studied them, but at this rate I can see it topping these too in the long run.
Yeah I wouldn’t consider Laundry Service a full on latin album either but I mentioned it in case there’s any Shakira fan, to avoid getting people mad lol.
It is also close to being #1 on the building decade-end chart, how satisfying
Also correct me if I’m wrong but maybe it has surpassed any Luis Miguel album too (?) I believe his best selling album is Romance at 10 million CSPC or something like that but i’m not really the best at estimating album sales for old albums hahah
It is possible. As I said haven’t his sales been checked at all as far as I know. It’s claimed at 8m pure, and that can very well be true based on its certifications. It will also add near 1m from streams. The biggest question are his compilations which there are many of, no idea what these sold.
The dark horse here is Julio Iglesias though. He got several albums in the 5-9m range and tons of comps released all over the world, and unlike more recent Latin acts did he enjoy a strong market for physical singles. Streams and likely digital sales on the other hand are weak.
If we can even consider him a pure Latin act that is. He translated his songs not just to English, but to Portuguese, Italian, German…
honestly, i feel like the streams formula for units is pretty flawed. would love to see that being changed in the future. ain’t no way +10B streams on spotify/youtube should equal to +10M units of albums sold. it comes across as an illusion rather than a true figure.
Un Verano Sin Ti spend 13 weeks at #1, was the #1 album on the B200 YEC, includes like six smash hits and broke streaming records across Latin America. If there’s an album which deserves to cross the 10 million equivalent units threshold in the streaming era this fast it is UVST. Those touring figures speak for themselves. If anything, in my opinion, UVST’s success reaffirmed how accurate the streaming formula is. Perhaps his music is not for you and that’s why the albums success seems pretty surprising. Thankfully there’s data available to back up those figures. I would understand wanting… Read more »
When album sales were the main consumption method, 10 millions were easily achievable for the top records in a calendar year. UVST is by far the top album of 2022 and nobody else is doing remotely close numbers, if it was easy to achieve there would be more competition.
In Bad bunny’s case he is already getting his sales a bit downplayed because of revenue difference in latin countries compared to US and other top music markets. I just find hilarious the system is flawed when a non english speaking artist dominates.
I think ‘Un Verano Sin Ti’ is a safe bet for the biggest album of the 2020s decade. It will be at 20 million units by the end of next year. By the end of the decade it could be at 30M+. What’s most extraordinary is that there is no standout hit, instead the Latin audience is streaming the ENTIRE album as if it’s a Greatest Hits collection. Every single track has the streaming stats of a hit record. It’s unbelievable. He’s an MJ/Beatles-esque phenomenon in the Spanish speaking world. It’s fascinating how much the industry has changed on a… Read more »
Agreed. The digital download age was all about singles and single sales and it ruined the studio album format, but streaming has really brought it back to life. Although I’m not a fan of artists releasing 20-25 track albums just to inflate streaming numbers/sales. I love me a good 10-12 track album.
He is so local, how can he sell so much units?
He is a massive phenomenon in Latin America and his music has probably reached more individuals in the last year in Spanish speaking countries alone than most artists during their peaks, global or not, could ever dream of. You can’t go to a party or club without hearing a dozen or so Bad Bunny songs. He is constantly on the radio and has dominated local streaming charts since the album was released. To put it in perspective, he literally has 4.4 million listeners from Mexico City in Spotify alone and nearly 600 million Youtube streams during the last 12 months.… Read more »
But he is still local. Its not to be negative, its just a fact.
Extremely embarrassing then that so many global superstars haven’t been able to outstream local artist Bad Bunny on Spotify for the last three years and will probably never reach the heights of UVST. Maybe they should try to be more local like him.
Local? From NewYork to Argentina to Spain ans Italy local? Really?
Badbunny has sold over 3million in the U.S. and he does 3X the numbers globally. 10 million makes sense.
So Bad Bunny has already gained 5 million EAS in the 2 months since this article was written. Of course streams of Un Verano Sin Ti will slow down eventually, but at the rate he’s going he’ll surpass the CSPC totals of Enrique Iglesias and Shakira in 2023, especially if he keeps releasing new material. How much farther does he have to go to before becoming the top-selling Latin act ever?
And when will this insane streaming of his last album stop? He will be the most-streamed album of all time. Who would have thought?
He’s coming for drake’s stream EAS. His current numbers are crazy and he has yet to drop a new album
Ifpi need to transparent with their data as he can’t even make top 10 with such huge streaming stats. Either his label don’t send or they downweight by pricing. He is selling out a whole stadium tour. He is huge
I’m quite sure he’s reported considering he’s under a major label and appeared on the streaming only chart last year.
They weigh the streaming units by revenue it seems. Although he’s getting a crazy amount of streams is the average revenue per stream in Latin America very low compared to the US and Europe still.
Yes thnx. Same reason dua isn’t making artist list, despite making both singles and album list in 2020 and 2021. As she is huge in latin America and major portion come from that. But artists having more success in USA still makes it over her or asian artists make it over these 2 because records are expensive in japan and korea. Revenue is definitely factored, because in 2020 a 40 million chinese single was just number 7 on ifpi. So they downweighted chinese sales.
