Bad Bunny is at number 1 for the eighth time with ‘Un Verano Sin Ti’, while Beyoncé’s ‘Renaissance’ falls to number 3
Bad Bunny is back at the top of the album chart for the eighth straight week, while last week’s leader, Beyoncé’s “Renaissance,” dropped to No. 3 in its second week on the chart.
Before the start of “Renaissance” on July 29, the chart for August 13 showed that “Un Verano Sin Ti” was slowly going down in the earned units. During its first 11 weeks, the album was earning more than 100,000 units, and by the time Beyoncé joined the fray, that figure was starting to drop. However, on this week’s chart, “Un Verano Sin Ti” again earns 108,800 equivalent album units (up 4 percent from last week), according to Luminate via Billboard.
“Un Verano Sin Ti” debuted at No. 1 on the chart on May 21, then left No. 1 for three weeks thanks to the entry Harry Styles’ “Harry’s House.” It later returned to No. 1 before falling again to No. 2 for two weeks. It reached the top again in its first multi-week run, spending five weeks at No. 1, before Beyoncé directed it.

Beyoncé’s reign on the albums chart may have been short-lived, but the dance-oriented album continues to dominate the singles chart as “Break My Soul” remains at No. 1 for the second week. The track is his first No. 1 single. 1 on the Hot 100 in 14 years and number eight on the chart. The last time Beyoncé topped the singles charts was in 2008, when “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” topped the Hot 100 for four weeks.
The track also rose from No. 5 to No. 2 on the Digital Song Sales chart, boosted by Madonna’s remix of “The Queens Remix”, released on August 5. Six new versions of “Break My Soul” were also released during the following week: remixes by Honey Dijon, Terry Hunter and will.i.am; her Nita Aviance club mix; and a cappella and instrumental version.
New on the album chart, YoungBoy Never Broke Again enters with his new album – and his 10th top 10 hit – “The Last Slimeto,” a 30-track album that starts with 108,400 equivalent units. As Billboard points out, YoungBoy Never Broke Again has recorded 22 top 200 entries over the past five years. Counting “The Last Slimeto”, the American rapper has scored three new top 10 hits in 2022 with “Better Than You” and “Colors”.
“Dangerous: The Double Album” remains at No. 4 with 49,000 units earned and Harry Styles’ “House of Harry” remains at No. 5 with an average of 43,000. Eminem follows closely behind with his second greatest hits compilation, “Curtain Call 2,” which debuts at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 with 43,000 equivalent album units earned.
Closing out the Billboard 200 is a former chart topper: Future’s “I Never.”
On the Hot 100, DJ Khaled’s “Staying Alive” featuring Drake and Lil Baby, debuts at No. 5. The Bee Gees’ classic 1977 track “Stayin’ Alive” interpolates and gives Drake his record of 59 top 10s, while Lil Baby gets his tenth and DJ Khaled’s seventh. Benny Blanco, BTS, and Snoop Dogg’s “Bad Decisions” is at No. 10 also new to the list.
Drops No. 1 Harry Styles “As It Was” from No. 3 to No. 2, Lizzo’s “About Damn Time” falls from No. 2 to No. 3 after two weeks on top of the Songs chart, and recently, Kate Bush drops. “Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)” remains at No. 4. It reached the peak of No. 3 previously due to its synchronization in the fourth season of “Stranger Things” Netflix.
Rounding out the tracklist are Steve Lacy’s “Bad Habit,” which rises 7-6; Future’s “Wait for U,” featuring Drake and Tems, is down 5-7 after a week at No. 1; Nicky Youre and Dazy’s “Sunroof” are up 9-8 and Jack Harlow’s “First Class” is down 6-9. 1; Nicky Youre and Dazy’s “Sunroof” are up 9-8, while Jack Harlow’s “First Class” is down 6-9.
