Morgan Wallen Sets New Country Album Record
Provided By - Video Elephant on March 01, 2021
Morgan Wallen’s latest album is the first country music album to spend its first 7 weeks on top of the Billboard 200 chart.
The only other country music star to achieve a similar record is Garth Brooks.
Brooks' album ‘The Chase’ spent 6 weeks at number one in 1992.
Drake’s 2016 album ‘Views’ is the last album to spend seven weeks at number one.
Wallen was dropped from his record label and had a decrease in airplay after a video surfaced showing him saying a racial slur.
The singer issued an apology, saying that his use of the slur was “unacceptable” and that he wished he could take it back.
There are no excuses to use this type of language, ever. I want to sincerely apologize for using the word. I promise to do better, Morgan Wallen.
