Morgan Wallen continues his reign as the best selling artist of 2021, even though the cancel culture went after him. It’s apparently not working. His sophomore album, Dangerous: The Double Album, sits at No. 1 for the ninth consecutive week.
According to Billboard, “Dangerous now has the most weeks at No. 1 among all albums since Drake’s Views scored 13 nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 in 2016. Dangerous is also one of just four country albums ever to spend at least nine weeks in the lead.”
“Dangerous earned 78,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending March 11 (down 6%),” according to MRC Data. The album is one of only four country albums to spend at least nine weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, since the chart started in March of 1956. Dangerous is also the only country album to spend its first nine weeks on the chart at No .1.
Dangerous: The Double Album made history as the only country album to spend more than six weeks at No. 1 a few weeks ago. The album now holds the record for the longest initial reign at No. 1 as it secures a ninth consecutive week. In addition to holding that record, the album is now only the fourth album overall across all genres to spend at least nine weeks at the top of the charts.
Question is. Will Morgan’s Dangerous: The Double Album spend 10 weeks at the top of the Billboard chart? It more than likely will. That’s our prediction.
