Bryson Tiller’s latest studio album True To Self lands his first #1 spot.

Distributed a month earlier than its expected date of June 23rd, True To Self dropped on May 26th through Tiller’s Twitter account. The album was a follow-up to Tiller’s debut Trapsoul. Both have been released through TrapSoul/RCA Records. 

The Billboard charts rank the most popular albums of the week coming out of the U.S.  based off aspects like traditional album sales, track equivalent albums, and streaming equivalent albums. True To Self earned 107,000 equivalent album units in the week ending June 1, according to Nielsen Music. 47,000 of that sum was in traditional album sales.

Tiller’s No.1 spot will be posted on the new June 17, 2017-dated chart in full on the Billboard website on June 6th.

Guatemalan artist Jesse Baez and Mexican artist Nan de Miguel (Girl Ultra) are two new R&B singers signed to Finesse Record coming out of Monterrey, Mexico; a new addition to their other genres including electronica and trap mixes.

The romantic groove their music carries holds dense beats and Latin rhythms, giving the impression of a long time collaboration between the two, but they’ve only been working together for about a year. Baez states in an interview conducted with FADER, “With the first song we collaborated on, we took so long that at one point I thought it wasn’t going to happen.”

Influenced from multiple artists like Mariah Carey, Juan Luis Guerra, and OV7, Baez and Ultra explain more in the interview how the connection through the label and their friendship helped them discover their sound.

The duo are expected to perform at the NRMAL food, arts, and community festival going on this weekend in Mexico City. You can get tickets here.

In the meantime, you can check out their music through the Finesse Records SoundCloud below.
