Country superstar, Morgan Wallen is rising to the top with over a billion streams on Dangerous: The Double Album. It has debuted as 2021’s Best Selling Album and No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart.

This album was released in the beginning of January and it spent 10 consecutive weeks at the top in 2021. This sets the record for the most weeks at number one. Drake’s Views surpassed him at 13 weeks in 2016.

Morgan Wallen shared the news with his Instagram followers a few days ago. He is grateful for all of the recognition his team has been receiving.

Dangerous is the only country album to spend its first 10 weeks at number one on the Billboard 200.

After a month of the album being out, Morgan Wallen decided to go out and celebrate with some close friends. Unfortunately, a video emerged showing him using the N-word. The world was in complete shock by this news. Dozens of popular playlists on Apple Music and Spotify dropped his music. Radio stations even had to stop playing it.

However, his fans never stopped playing his music, which helped the album rise to number one on the charts. It never left the weekly top 10, however, the artist stepped away from the public eye for a short time.

With its year-end coronation, it is only the fourth country album to earn number one year-end honors on the Billboard 200 Albums chart. It follows Taylor Swift’s Fearless (2009) and Carrie Underwood’s Some Hearts (2006).

The Dangerous Tour 2022

Morgan Wallen is making his return with the announcement of his Dangerous Tour in 2022. He will be joined by his label mates and friends, HARDY and Larry Fleet.

The pre-sale numbers were incredibly high, which encouraged his team to add a few more dates. One of them being March 16 in Nashville, Tennessee. This marks Morgan Wallen’s first headlining tour since his Whiskey Glasses Roadshow in 2020.

He is also planning to headline major festivals next year, such as Country Thunder in Florida, Arizona, Wisconsin and Bristol.

Before he announced his headlining tour, he played to a sold-out crowd of 31,000 in Mobile, Alabama. The support he has received after everything that’s happened is unbelievable.

The tour will officially start on February 3 in Evansville, Indiana and wrap up in Los Angeles, California on September 24.
