It’s the first country set to spend two weeks in a row at No. 1 since 2015. Plus: Why Don’t We logs career-high rank with debut of 'The Good Times and the Bad Ones.'
Morgan Wallen’s Dangerous: The Double Album spends a second straight week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, earning 159,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending Jan. 21 (down 40%), according to MRC Data. The album arrived atop the list a week ago with 265,000 units.
Dangerous is the first country album to spend two weeks in a row at No. 1 since Chris Stapleton’s Traveller in 2015 (charts dated Nov. 21-28 that year), and the first country set to spend its first two weeks at No. 1 since Luke Bryan’s Kill the Lights that year (Aug. 29-Sept. 5, 2015). Traveller debuted on the chart dated May 23, 2015 at No. 14, and was off the chart by October. It then re-entered at No. 1 on Nov. 21, 2015, after Stapleton’s multiple wins and well-received performance on the Country Music Association Awards on Nov. 4.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). Each unit equals one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams generated by songs from an album. The new Jan. 30, 2021-dated chart (where Dangerous holds at No. 1) will be posted in full on Billboard's website on Jan. 26.
