Back at the top of Billboard’s album and single charts, respectively, are Bad Bunny and Harry Styles. But someone below them may have accomplished more this week: country superstar Morgan Wallen, who has broken a record for his longevity in the top 10 of the Billboard 200. Recently, Wallen’s “Dangerous:
The Double Album” broke the record for the album by a single artist with the most weeks in the top 10 of the Billboard album list with 86. According to Billboard, the previous record was held by Peter, Paul, and Mary’s debut album, which spent 85 weeks in the top 10 in the early 1960s. As of late, he has also surpassed the chart durability of “21” by Adele and “Born in the USA” by Bruce Springsteen, both of which reached 84 weeks in the top 10.
Who is Morgan Wallen?
Country music singer and songwriter Morgan Cole Wallen was born in the United States on May 13, 1993. He was a contestant on the sixth season of The Voice, competing first on Usher’s team before switching to Adam Levine’s. The next year, after being knocked out of the playoffs, he signed with Panacea Records and released his debut EP, Stand Alone.
If I Know Me, Wallen’s debut album with Big Loud was released in 2018 and featured the singles “Up Down” (with Florida Georgia Line), “Whiskey Glasses,” and “Chasin’ You.” The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. Album tracks “More Than My Hometown,” “7 Summers,” and “Wasted on You” all peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Morgan Cole Wallen Was Born on May 13, 1993, in Tennessee to A Baptist Family; His Father Served as A Preacher. Wallen’s Parents Encouraged His Early Interest in Music by Enrolling Him in Violin and Piano Classes.
Wallen Was Granted a Scholarship Because of His Stellar Play on The High School Basketball Team, but After Suffering an Injury that Ended His Playing Career, He Decided to Pursue Music Instead.
Wallen Had Never Seen an Episode of “The Voice,” but His Mother Had Put Him up To Try out After Hearing About the Show. He Was Picked by Usher, but Then Taken by Adam Levine. After Appearing on Season 6 of “The Voice” in 2014 (and Being Eliminated in The Playoffs), Wallen Began Working with Sergio Sanchez of Atom Smash, Who in Turn Connected Wallen to Bill Ray and Paul Trust of Panacea Records.
Wallen’s Manager, Dirk Hemsath of Working Group Artist Management, Sent a Demo of Wallen to Big Loud Shirt’s Seth England, Who Then Had Wallen Audition for His Partners in Big Loud Records, and Wallen Signed with Panacea Records the Following Year, Releasing an Ep Titled “Stand Alone” on August 24, 2015.
After Signing with Big Loud Records and Releasing His Debut Single “The Way I Talk” in 2016, Wallen Went on To Co-Write Jason Aldean’s Hit “you Make It Easy” the Following Year. The Second Track “Up Down” from Wallen’s 2018 Debut Album “if I Know Me” Reached the Top 16 on The Billboard Hot 100.
Wallen’s ‘more than My Hometown’ Was Released in 2020, and His Song ‘7 Summers,’ Released on August 14, Broke the Record for The Most First-Day Streams. Both the Us Billboard 200 and Canada’s Albums Chart Included His Record “dangerous: The Double Album” in Their Top 10 upon Its Release. According to Estimates, Morgan Wallen’s Fortune Is Around $4 Million as Of September 2022.
There Are Seven Albums with Longer Streaks than Wallen’s 86 Weeks, but They Are All Soundtracks or Cast Albums, so Wallen Will Have to Beat the 173 Weeks Accrued by The “My Fair Lady” Original Broadway Cast Album in The Late ’50s to Break the Record for Any Album, Period. Despite a Little 5% Drop, “dangerous” Moved Back up To No. 2 This Week, Thanks to An Additional 48,000 Album Equivalent Units. However, as long as Bad Bunny Is Around, “un Verano Sin Ti” Will Remain at The Top, Far Ahead of Wallen and The Rest of The Pack, with 99,500 Units.
Bad Bunny’s Album
Bad Bunny’s Album Has Been on The Charts for 18 Weeks, and In that Time It Has Never Ranked Lower than Second. Is It Possible that “un Verano Sin Ti” Will Eventually Surpass Wallen’s Record for Top 10 Longevity? at This Point, It Doesn’t Seem Impossible; Therefore, We Should Give It Another 68 Weeks or So to Find Out.
It’s Megadeth’s Seventh Top 10 Album Since They First Climbed that High in 1992 with “the Sick, the Dying… and The Dead!,” Which Debuted at No. 3 with 48,000 Equivalent Album Units (of Which 45,000 Came via Traditional Album Sales). Santos’ “fórmula, Vol. 3” Entered the Chart at Number 10 with Sales of 26 Thousand Copies. Top 10 Albums on The Billboard 200 Include Dj Khaled’s “god Did” at No. 4 (down from Its No. 1 Debut Last Week), Styles‘ “harry’s House” at No. 5, Beyonce’s “renaissance” at No. 6, Rod Wave at No. 7, the Weeknd at No. 8, and Twice at No. 9.
What Is the History of Their Album?
Styles “as It Was” Spends a Non-Consecutive 13th Week at No. 1 on The Billboard Hot 100, and His Other Success, “late Night Walking,” Climbs to A New Top of No. 3, Having Previously Peaked at No. 12 the Week Prior. Despite the fact that most of The Top 10 on The Hot 100 Are Repeat Performers, One Republic’s “I Ain’t Worried” Has Broken Into the Top Ten for The First Time in Its History by Climbing Eight Spots from Its Previous Position in The Top 20.
This Makes It the Highest-Charting Track from The “top Gun: Maverick” Soundtrack; Lady Gaga’s “hold My Hand” Peaked at No. 49 Three Months After Its Initial Entry. Steve Lacy’s “bad Habit” Stays at No. 2 Like It Did Last Week, While “sunroof” by Nicky You’re and Dazy Jumps up To No. 4. After that Comes “I Like You (a Happier Song)” by Post Malone and Doja Cat, “super Freaky Girl” by Nicki Minaj, “running up That Hill” by Kate Bush, and “you Proof” by Wallen.
