Puerto Rican producer Mora notches his third top 10 on Billboard‘s Top Latin Albums chart as his third-studio album Paraiso, debuts at No. 4 on the Nov. 19-dated list. Rimas Entertainment released the set on Nov. 3.

Paraiso earned 9,000 equivalent album units after its first full tracking week ending Nov. 10, according to Luminate. The streaming-equivalent unit equivalent to the album’s opening sum is most of the set’s total. That sum equals 12.8 million official on-demand streams of the album’s songs.

On the multimetric Top Latin Albums chart 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.

The 26-year-old, born Gabriel Mora Quintero, debuts in the top 10 on Top Latin Albums mirroring his predecessor effort Microdosis. His second studio album was also released at No. 4 (April 16-dated ranking) and held in the upper region for two weeks within its 34-week period and counting (No. 44 on the current list). Previously, Mora secured a first top 10 through his album debut Primer Dia de Clases (No. 7 high in 2021).

Paraiso is No. 3 on Latin Rhythm Albums, also his third straight top 10 there. Further, it grants Mora his second and highest entry on Billboard 200, debuting at No. 114.

Unlike Mora’s previous efforts, the 14-track set parades through his usual reggaeton mold, yet it also dives into dance-styled and pop-peppered tunes, products of his long stay in Europe (in support of his last project, Microdosis) induced mainly by Ibiza’s “party vibe,” as he’s referred to. The album features a mix of artists: De La Ghetto and Quevedo, Danny Ocean and YOVNCHIMI.

As Paraiso launches, two of its songs debut on the all-metric Hot Latin Songs chart, which blends airplay, streams and digital sales: “Domingo de Bote” at No. 34, and “Modelito,” with YOVNCHIMI, at No. 42.

“Domingo de Bote”, leader in streams, has 1. 74 million official on-demand streams in the week. “Modelito” generated 1. 49 million in its first week.

“Domingo” is No. 1 on the Global Front. 193 on the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart. “Apa” with Quevedo is at No. 132, while locks the album’s only entry on the Billboard Global 200 tally, at No. 198.
