In light of the racial slur incident, Morgan Wallen has virtually been removed from the face of country music.
But looking at the charts, you wouldn’t know it.
According to to Billboard, Wallen has officially notched his 4th straight week at the top of the Billboard Hot 200 chart. And that’s not just country music, that’s the biggest album in any genre.
At 149,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. this past week, he’s up 14% compared to the last week. His radio play dropped 71% since the video surfaced, however his streams are up 339%.
At a Super Bowl party last night, Diplo also played his song “Heartless,” featuring Morgan Wallen on vocals, so while his music might’ve been pulled from radio, it’s still getting played by some of the biggest DJs in the world.
