It feels like a weekly thing to be saying that at this point, as just last week, he became the first artist to ever have three songs in all three top spots on the Hot Country Songs chart, with “You Proof,” “One Thing At a Time,” & “Wasted On You” claiming the top three spots on the Billboard Hot Country songs chart simultaneously.
And this week, according to chart data, his Dangerous double album became the first artist album in history to spend 100 weeks in the top 10 on the Billboard 200 all-genre chart, which is pretty mind-boggling, and impressive, seeing as the record dropped in January of 2021.
It’s also the longest-running top 10 album in the chart’s history, which goes for any record in all of music… to say that’s unprecedented would be an understatement, especially for a country artist and a country album on an all-genre chart like that:
.@MorganWallen's 'Dangerous: The Double Album' becomes the first artist album in history to spend 100 weeks in the top 10 on the Billboard 200.
His most recent #1 single, “You Proof,” is officially the #1 song at country radio again this week, and it’s now tied with “Amazed” by Lonestar and “It’s Five O’clock Somewhere” by Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett for most weeks at number one on Billboard Country Airplay chart:
"You Proof" by @MorganWallen is officially the #1 song on Billboard Country Airplay for an 8th week.
Ties the record for most weeks at number one on Billboard Country Airplay, with "Amazed" by Lonestar and "It's Five O'clock Somewhere" by Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett.
Needless to say, with the Dangerous era officially over and Morgan teasing a lot of new music coming soon, in addition to gearing up for a massive 2023 stadium world tour, he’s probably going to only multiply this momentum next year.
It’s hard to imagine how he could top everything that’s happened since he released Dangerous, but if he does, he’s going to be breaking his own records.
