Morgan Wallen's streaming juggernaut, One Thing At A Time, has earned the Sneedville megastar another chart record this week.

The 36-song project has become the first album in history to sell the equivalent of 100,000 units for 17 weeks, with One Thing At A Time racking up 110,500 US sales in the final frame of June.

The latest accolade follows in a seemingly innumerable series of broken records for Morgan Wallen, with the ‘Last Night’ hitmaker's acclaimed One Thing At A Time recently becoming the longest-running album of the decade so far.

In addition, Morgan Wallen recently teamed up with his fellow country trailblazer, Luke Combs, to set a new Billboard Hot 100 chart record. Wallen's ‘Last Night’ and Combs’ Tracy Chapman cover, ‘Fast Car’, secured the No. 1 and No. 2 spots respectively, meaning two country songs topped the Hot 100 chart for the first time in 42 years.

Morgan Wallen is not the only person enjoying his immovability atop the charts, as the unrivalled success of One Thing At A Time has helped to ensure Republic Records has topped the Billboard 200 for 17 weeks in a row - the longest run for a label since 1992.

Republic's historic 17 week streak has been made possible by three blockbuster projects released via the UMG imprint: Morgan Wallen's One Thing At A Time (15 weeks), Taylor Swift's Midnights (one week) and Stray Kids’ 5-STAR (one week).

So far, Wallen's 2023 album has blocked a staggering 11 projects from reaching the peak of the Billboard 200, which marks the most for any project in more than a decade.

The continued dominance of One Thing At A Time, which has been bolstered by the immense popularity of one of the lead singles from the album, ‘Last Night’, has kept the momentum high as Morgan Wallen continues his One Night At A Time world tour. This week, he heads to St. Louis for a double-header of shows, before taking his sprawling arsenal of hits to San Diego, California on July 14-15.
