He becomes the first corridos tumbados act to score a top five debut in 2020.
Junior H clocks his first entry on the Top Latin Albums chart (dated April 11), as his sophomore EP Atrapado En Un Sueño arrives at No. 5.
Atrapado marks the Guanajuato-bred singer-songwriter’s first entry on any Billboard album chart. Junior H secured his first entry on a Billboard chart through his featured role on compatriot Natanael Cano’s “Ella” in November (the No. 4-peaking title on the Regional Mexican Digital Song Sales chart currently stands at No. 43 on Hot Latin Songs). Junior H's first EP, Mi Vida En Un Cigarro, was released on May 31, 2019, but missed the charts.
"I’m grateful to three people: God, my parents and [founder and CEO of urban regional Mexican label Rancho Humilde] Jimmy Humilde," Junior H tells Billboard. "I grew up with many hopes, the first one to sing, to step on a stage and becoming a star. I have learned that things must be done with a heart, and today I can say that I put my album on Billboard, that I am moving forward and that soon I will be onstage.”
