The Billboard Latin Pop Albums chart, published in Billboard magazine, is a record chart that features Latin music sales information. The Latin Pop Chart was the first of the Latin charts along with, Regional Mexican Albums and Tropical Albums, to be released from Billboard.[1] The data is compiled by Nielsen SoundScan from a sample that includes music stores, music departments at electronics and department stores, Internet sales (both physical and digital) and verifiable sales from concert venues in the United States.[2] The data for this chart was published every two weeks, unlike most Billboard charts.[1]

During the 1980s, there were 19 number-one albums in this chart, which was first published on June 29, 1985.[3] The first album to peak at number one in the first year of publication was Reflexiones, by Mexican singer José José. The album received a Grammy Award nomination for Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Album[4] and received a platinum certification in Mexico for sales of 250,000 units,[5] Reflexiones spent 8 weeks at number one in 1985. Three other albums by José José: Promesas, Siempre Contigo, and Soy Así also reached number-one on the chart.[6][7][8] Un hombre solo by Spanish singer Julio Iglesias holds the record for having the most consecutive weeks at number-one. It won the Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Album in 1988, defeating albums from veteran pop such as singers José José, Danny Rivera, Yolandita Monge, and Emmanuel;[9] the latter had two albums which peaked at number one on March 1987 with his albums Solo and Entre Lunas in May 1988.[10][11] In addition, a compilation album related to the artist reached number-one in 1986.[12]

Primitive Love by the Miami Sound Machine peaked number-one on October 4, 1986 for six weeks and twenty-three on the Billboard 200.[13] The eponymous album by Roberto Carlos, released in 1988, spent two weeks at the top of the chart and won the Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Album.[10][14] One compilation album related to Spanish singer-songwriter Camilo Sesto spent six non-consecutive weeks as number-one .[10] Another performer of Spanish descent, Isabel Pantoja, reached number-one with her album, Desde Andalucía. The album spent 24 weeks on top making it the longest consecutive number-one album on the chart by a female artist.[15] Tierra de nadie by Ana Gabriel was her first number-one album and the last album to chart in the 1980s.[16]
