Blake Shelton’s ‘Body Language’ Has a Top 5 Debut on the Top Country Albums Chart

Blake Shelton earns his 17th top 10 on Billboard‘s Top Country Albums chart, all of which have started in the tier, as his 12th full-length, Body Language, debuts at No. 3. The set starts on the June 5-dated survey with 24,000 equivalent album units (15,000 in album sales), according to MRC Data.

The album follows Fully Loaded: God’s Country, which became Shelton’s seventh Top Country Albums No. 1 upon its debut in December 2019 (96,000 units).


The new LP’s sophomore single, “Minimum Wage,” pushes 13-11 on the Country Airplay chart (15 million airplay audience impressions, up less than 1%) and jumps 19-12 on Hot Country Songs, logging 4.7 million U.S. streams and 4,000 in sales.

Body Language lead single “Happy Anywhere,” featuring Gwen Stefani, led Country Airplay and hit No. 3 on Hot Country Songs in December.

DEFINITELY TOP 10: Jordan Davis nets his fourth career-opening Country Airplay top 10 as “Almost Maybes” lifts 11-7 (20.3 million, up 8%). His previous top 10, “Slow Dance in a Parking Lot,” led last April, becoming his first No. 1.

SPECIAL ‘SATURDAY NIGHT’: Cole Swindell nets his 10th Country Airplay top 10 as “Single Saturday Night” rises 12-10 (19 million, up 12%). It’s his first top 10 since “Love You Too Late,” which reigned in November 2019, becoming his fifth leader.
