You know what they say: New year, new music — and Billboard is gearing up for all the Latin albums dropping in 2024.
Last year, Latin powerhouses Karol G and Bad Bunny dropped new albums. The Colombian sensation released Mañana Será Bonito in February and its Bichota Season spin-off in August. The former, home to the Shakira-assisted “TQG,” made history as the first Spanish-language LP by a female artist to top the Billboard 200 and nabbed the coveted album of the year at the 2023 Latin Grammys.
In true Bad Bunny fashion, the Puerto Rican star surprised fans with his album Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana in October. The trap-heavy set also hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200, marking his third consecutive album to debut atop the chart following his 2022 Un Verano Sin Ti (for 13 nonconsecutive weeks) and El Último Tour del Mundo (one week in 2020).
Meanwhile, Música Mexicana also had an excellent year with the release of Peso Pluma’s debut album Génesis, which made history, debuting at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, as well as Natanael Cano’s Nata Montana, Carin Leon’s Colmillo de Leche and Fuerza Regida’s Pa Las Baby’s y la Belikeada, all of which landed on Billboard’s “Best Latin albums of 2023” list.
Now, with 2024 in full swing, we’ve put together the ultimate album release calendar to announce upcoming Latin albums fans can expect this year. So far, Bad Gyal, Blessd, Myriam Hernández, Prince Royce, Alvaro Diaz and more will be dropping records in the first half of the year. See the updating list below.
We’ll be updating this list as new albums are announced, so check back often!
