For ten consecutive weeks, Morgan Wallen’s newest record Dangerous: The Double Album has sat firmly in the #1 spot since its debut on the Billboard Top 200 Chart. Despite the chaos surrounding the budding superstar, the album is shattering records.
Dangerous: The Double Album is the first record since Whitney Houston’s Whitney, in 1987, to spend its initial 10 weeks at number one. Joining Houston’s album along with Stevie Wonder’s 1976 album, Songs In The Key Of Life, Wallen’s sophomore project becomes only the third album of all-time that has reached this accolade. Even more, the album is currently on track to overtake Drake’s record-breaking album, Views, which spent 13 nonconsecutive weeks in the lead in 2016.
If that’s not impressive enough, Wallen’s record is the first-ever country album to spend more than six weeks topping the charts. It’s also only the fourth album across genres to spend at least nine weeks atop the charts.
Despite how some may feel about Wallen and his newest record, it’s fair to say that Dangerous: The Double Album is a certified masterpiece. Only time will tell what this news continues to mean for Wallen and his place in country music.
