On Dangerous“265,000 equivalent album units earned in the following week ending January 14, SEA units cover 184,000 (equivalent to 240.18 million streams of songs on the album on demand), album sales are 74,000, and TEA units include 7,000 (On Dangerous“74,000 album sales, 50,000 digital download album sales.)
Dangerous is Wallen’s second full-length album since 2018 If I know me, which peaked at number 1
Before Dangerous, the singer-songwriter had caught 13 charts in the Hot Country Songs chart, including eight top 10 (two of which reached number 1). He has placed 10 tunes in the Billboard Hot 100 chart, including the new album “7 Summers”. The latter debuted at number 6, marking at that time only the second debut of the Top 10 of the Hot 100 for a song by a solo man and no accompanying acts, which also appear in Hot Country Songs.
Let’s take a look at some of the remarkable feats that Wallen accomplishes Dangerousdebut.
The biggest streaming week for a country album: Like Dangerous collected 184,000 SEA units, equivalent to 240.18 million on-demand streams from the set’s 30 songs, the largest week of streaming ever for an album in the country. It wins, more than doubling, the 102.26 million streams achieved by Luke Combs’ What you see is what you get in the week ending October 29, 2020. That same week, Combs’ old album was reissued with bonus tracks, bringing the total number of songs to 23. After its luxurious reissue, the album shot back to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for a second lead week. He reported his first week at No. 1 when he debuted in the top slot (schedule of November 23, 2019).
Of course, the fact that Dangerous has a huge 30 songs significantly improves its ability to accumulate a large total streaming – as the number of streams is based on the total number of streams in all songs on the album.
However, even if the album was shortened to 18 at leaststreaming songs (in the week ending January 14), their amount of 105.08 million would still be the former record of Combs
Third largest streaming week for non-R&B / hip-hop album: Dangerous releases the third largest streaming week for a non-R&B / hip-hop album, following only that of Ariana Grande Thanks U, Next (307.07 million in its debut week) and Taylor Swift Folklore (289.85 million, debut week). Generally, Dangerous is the 22nd largest streaming week for an album.
The biggest week for a country album in over two years: The country’s latest album, which has a larger week, with equivalent albums, was by Carrie Underwood Cry Pretty, which started with 266,000 units on the schedule dated September 19, 2018. Unlike Dangerous,, Cry PrettyThe first week was supported by sales generated by an offer to buy back concert tickets / albums. (Such offers no longer contribute to sales billboardcharts.)
Dangerous there is also the ninth largest week for each album of any genre, in units, in the last 12 months.
Only the 11th Billboard 200 country album in the last five years: Wallen carries a rare view of the top of the Billboard 200 as well Dangerous is only the 11th country to reach number 1 in January 2016.
Surprisingly, of the 178 albums № 1 after the chart of January 23, 2016, only 11 are country titles (only 6.2%). These 11 countries number 1: Jason Aldin They do not know (2016); To Thomas Rhett Changes in life, On Shanya Twain Now, On Kenny Honest Live at No Shoes Nation, By Luke Brian What makes you a party (2017); Aldean’s City for back view, Underwood’s Cry Pretty (2018), Rhett’s Point Road Center, Luke Combs What you see is what you get (2018; the latter had one week at number 1 in both 2018 and 2019); Honest Here and now (2020); and now to Wallen Dangerous (2021).
In 2nd place in the new Billboard 200, by Taylor Swift Evermore slips one spot after three consecutive weeks ahead, with 55,000 equivalent album units earned (down 1%). Pop Smoke is a former number one Shoot for the Stars Aim for The moon is stable at number 3 with 47,000 units (an increase of 5%). Both titles were released by Republic Records, such as Dangerous. In turn, the Republic holds the top three for the third time in less than three months and remains the only label to monopolize the top three since 2003, when Interscope performed the feat.
Jazmine Sullivan achieved her career in the Billboard 200 as Heaux Tales bows under number 4 with 43,000 equivalent earned album units. This exceeds her previous schedule of 6, achieved in the first week of her debut set, and only 10 others, Fearless (October 11, 2008 chart). Heaux Tales is the fourth effort of the singer in the rankings and the first since 2015 Reality show debuted and peaked at number 12 (January 31, 2015).
To Lil Dirk The voice falls from its number 2 to number 5 with 42,000 equivalent albums won (down 12%).
The former No. 1 of The Weeknd In hours charges 14-6 with 35,000 units (an increase of 34%). The latter took advantage of the popularity of his latest single and his new official video (released on January 5) for “Save Your Tears”, as well as the widespread advertisement of The Weeknd, advertising his halftime at the upcoming Super Bowl (February 7) . The former No. 1 of Ariana Grande Positions falls 4-7 with 34,000 units (down 4%). Both In hours and Positions were released through Republic Records, giving the label a stunning five of the top 10 albums – the first time a group of labels claimed half of the top 10 in almost a year (since February 1, 2020, when Interscope Geffen A&M achieved the award). Republic last had half of the top 10 rankings on November 9, 2013.
Closing the top 10 of the new Billboard 200 are Luke Combs’ What you see is what you get (7-8 with just over 31,000 units; down 3%), Juice WRLD’s Legends never die (held at number 9 with 31,000 units; growth of 4%) and Megan Ti Stallion Good news (6-10 with just under 31,000 units; 5% reduction).
