Country's multi-platinum superstar Morgan Wallen is taking the world by storm with his new album, Dangerous: The Double Album, which has debuted at #1 this week atop the US Billboard 200 Albums chart, and earned the largest streaming week for a country album in history.
Last week, Wallen demolished first day streaming records, becoming Spotify’s biggest all-time first day stream record for a Country album, and setting the record for the biggest first day and biggest first week for a Country album of all-time at Apple Music.
27 of the 30 songs on Dangerous have landed inside the Billboard Hot Country Songs Top 50, with six in the Top 10, setting an unprecedented new record. Wallen is also the first artist ever to debut at #1 on the Top Country Albums and Hot Country Songs charts simultaneously.
Speaking with Billboard, Wallen said, "Thank you to the fans for making this one of the best weeks of my life. When we decided to go for it with a double album, I knew we were taking a risk, but I believed in the music and hoped it would be something y’all loved. This goes way beyond any of my expectations. I have to thank my family and friends for always believing in me, my team for all of their hard work in putting this project together, and everyone who has supported me along the way. I'm blown away by the success of this record and all 30 of these songs. I will never forget this!”
