Morgan Wallen has broken records on streaming services with his sophomore release, Dangerous: The Double Album, after launching on January 8th.

As reported via Rolling Stone, Wallen’s massive 30-track album received over 100 million on-demand audio streams in just three days. This enormous feat means Dangerous has received “the most single-week on-demand audio streams for a country album in history, according to Alpha Data,” Rolling Stone wrote. Not only that, Dangerous set the record for the biggest first day and biggest first week country album of all time, becoming the most pre-added country album in Apple Music history. It currently sits at #1 on their Overall Albums charts in the US, Canada and Australia, while simultaneously ranked as the #1 Top Country Album in 62 countries worldwide.

On Amazon Music, the release broke the global first day streaming record for a country album debut. Dangerous is also now Spotify’s biggest all-time first day stream record for a country album as the Tennessee native reigns #1 globally and in the US on Spotify’s Top Debut’s charts.

Featuring 30-tracks, the album includes the record-breaking current single, 7 Summers – which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and inside the Billboard Hot 100’s Top 10 – 3X platinum Diplo collaboration, Heartless, and recent platinum chart-topper More Than My Hometown.

Wallen will celebrate the release by playing selections from Dangerous in a free global live-stream event from Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium at 1pm AEDT January 13th, 2021 on his Facebook and YouTube pages.
