Billboard’s list of best-selling Latin Albums is led again this week by Dominican bachatero Romeo Santos’ first solo disc, “Formula: Vol. 1.”

Mexico’s Jenni Rivera likewise retains her grip on second place with “Joyas prestadas: Banda,” while another of her albums, “Joyas prestadas: Pop,” climbed from fourth to third.

Moving up from fifth to the No. 4 spot is Cristian Castro’s “Mi amigo El Principe: La historia,” the latest installment in his series of albums paying tribute to Jose Jose.

“El verdadero amor perdona,” by Mexican rockers Mana with an assist from bachatero Prince Royce, tops Billboard’s Tropical Songs chart, where the rankings are based on radio airplay.

A Romeo Santos collaboration with Usher, “Promise,” takes the No. 2 spot, followed by Victor Manuelle’s “Si tu me besas.”

“Lovumba (Prestige),” the latest single from Daddy Yankee, edged up from fifth to fourth, but the biggest jump this week belongs to Tito El Bambino, whose “Maquina del tiempo,” featuring Wisin y Yandel, vaulted from No. 21 to No. 5.
