Morgan Wallen performs onstage at Nashville’s Music City Center for “The 54th Annual CMA Awards” broadcast on Wednesday, Nov. 11, 2020 in Nashville, Tenn.

Morgan Wallen is just days from unveiling his 30-song project, Dangerous: The Double Album, on Friday (Jan. 8), but Walmart leaked the music ahead of time.

In a video shared to Instagram on Monday (Jan. 4), the country star addressed the situation. "I saw that some of y'all have been posting and trying to spread the new music, which I'm super thankful for," he explained. "I'm glad you're eager to do that, but man, I've been working on this album for three years and I'll be damned if I'mma let Walmart do the leaking like that."

He went on to note that he will be "doing the leaking of the songs [him]self" on TikTok, Instagram and Twitter, before throwing some shade at the retail mega-corporation.

"It's kind of messed up but I don't shop at Walmart anyway," he concluded his video. "I also gave Target two extra songs, so if you're gonna buy my album physically, go to Target baby."

He has since stayed true to his word, sharing links to songs "Warning," "Dangerous" and "Rednecks, Red Letters, Red Dirt" on his Instagram Stories.

Dangerous: The Double Album is available for pre-order here (including a link to Target's pre-sale and not Walmart's).
