Peso Pluma’s Genesis is here, just a week after the singer announced a new album. The 14-song set includes collaborations with Mexican music stars such as Natanael Cano, Junior H, and Luis R Conriquez, as well as previously released tracks such as “Rosa pastel” with Jasiel Nuñez, “77” with Eladio Carrión and “Bye.”
“I want my album to be well received by people, to have the same streams as the singles,” the chart-dominating Mexican artist, whose previous albums include Ah Y Qué? and Efectos Secundarios, told Billboard. “I’m showing the people another part of La Doble P.”
Genesis arrives as Peso Pluma continues to make Billboard chart history. Most recently, the “Por las noches” singer became the first artist to top the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. simultaneously with two different songs: “Ella baila sola” by Eslabón Armado and Peso Pluma and “BZRP Music Sessions, Vol. 55,” his Bizarrap-produced hit. “Ella baila sola” spent five weeks at the top of the Billboard Global 200, becoming the regional Mexican genre’s first No. 1.
Of his rapid rise, Peso (whose real name is Hassan Emilio Kabande Laija) has said, “I knew this would happen, but I didn’t know at what level and how fast. I knew I would do well in Mexico and the Spanish-speaking countries, but this went worldwide [so fast]. I’m grateful for that.”
The 24-year-old singer-songwriter is currently on a U.S. tour produced by Live Nation, which kicked off in April and will make stops in Nashville, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Chicago.
