The Billboard Top Latin albums chart, published in Billboard magazine, is a chart that features Latin music sales information. These data are compiled by Nielsen SoundScan from a sample that includes music stores, music departments at electronics and department stores, internet sales (both physical and via digital downloads) and verifiable sales from concert venues in United States.
There were eleven number-one albums on this chart in 2000, including the greatest hits collection Desde Un Principio: From the Beginning by Marc Anthony, which spent a non-consecutive run of 13 weeks at the top of the chart starting in early December 1999. Los Temerarios and Conjunto Primavera peaked at number one for the first time with Morir de Amor and En La Madrugada se Fue, respectively. Both albums received Latin Grammy nominations for Best Grupero Performance, which was awarded to the latter one.MTV Unplugged, by Colombian performer Shakira, also peaked at number one for two weeks and went on to win the Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Album at the 43rd Grammy Awards.
