Our prediction was spot on. Morgan Wallen is still not being canceled all thanks to country music fans and people who know people aren’t perfect. Morgan may say dumb shit, but he’s absolutely one of the best people to ever get to know personally. He’s real and honest. His music speaks for itself. It’s fucking great.
Morgan Wallen continues his reign as the best selling artist of 2021! The cancel culture went after him and it’s clearly not working. Morgan’s sophomore album, Dangerous: The Double Album, sits at No. 1 for a 10th consecutive week now.
According to Billboard, Dangerous is the first album to spend its first 10 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 since 1987, when Whitney Houston’s Whitney album logged all 11 of its weeks at No. 1 from its debut week (from the June 27 through Sept. 5, 1987-dated charts). Before that, the only other album to spend its first 10 weeks at No. 1 on the chart, which began regularly publishing as a weekly survey in March of 1956, was Stevie Wonder’s Songs in the Key of Life. It spent its first 13 weeks at No. 1 (of a total of 14 nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1) from the Oct. 16, 1976, through Jan. 8, 1977-dated charts. Notably Dangerous is the first album to accomplish the feat since MRC Data (then SoundScan) information began powering the chart in May of 1991.
Dangerous is also the first album to string together 10 weeks in a row at No. 1 in total since Adele’s 21 linked 10 weeks in 2012 (of its total 24 nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1).
Dangerous is one of just four country albums to spend at least 10 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 — since the chart began publishing on a regular weekly basis in March of 1956. (Country albums are defined as those that have charted on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.) Ahead of Dangerous among country sets with the most weeks at No. 1: Garth Brooks’ Ropin’ the Wind (18 weeks, 1991-92), Billy Ray Cyrus’ Some Gave All (17, 1992) and Taylor Swift’s Fearless (11, 2008-09).
Will Morgan Wallen’s Dangerous album hit 11 weeks at the top of of Billboards albums chart to tie Whitney Houston’s Whitney album? We will see next week.
