Morgan Wallen’s ‘Dangerous’ Makes History as Only Country Album to Spend First 7 Weeks at No. 1 on Billboard 200, Despite Controversy

Morgan Wallen remains on top of the charts.

The 27-year-old singer-songwriter’s Dangerous: The Double Album stayed at No. 1 for a seventh week on the Billboard 200, the company confirmed Sunday (February 28).

The album brought in 89,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the past week.

The only other country set to tally its first six weeks at No. 1 was Garth BrooksThe Chase in 1992.

Dangerous and The Chase are two of only eight country albums that have spent at least seven weeks in total at No. 1. Dangerous is the only country album to spend its first seven weeks on the chart at No. 1.

The last album to spend seven weeks in a row at No. 1, regardless of genre, was Drake’s Views in 2016.

Earlier in the month, footage surfaced of the singer using a racial slur, which has yet to make any significant impact on his sales, despite being suspended from his record label and ineligible for some awards. Here’s what he said in his apology.
