Morgan Wallen continues his run of chart domination. The disgraced country music stars’ Dangerous: The Double Album has officially clocked in at no. 1 on the Billboard 200 Album Chart for the eighth week running.

According to MRC Data, Dangerous earned 82,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending March 4th (down 7%). Dangerous is now one of only six country records to have spent eight weeks in total at No. 1.

The record joins Garth Brooks’, Ropin’ the Wind and The Hits, Billy Ray Cyrus’ Some Gave All, Taylor Swift’s Fearless, and Eagles, Hotel California.

Dangerous now draws with Taylor Swift’s folklore as the album with the second-most weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in the last five years. Drake’s 2016 effort Views holds the No.1 spot, with 13 non-consecutive weeks at No. 1.

The success of Dangerous has been overshadowed by the recent controversy surrounding Morgan Wallen. The rising country star found himself in hot water after footage emerged of him using the N-slur whilst on a night out with friends.

In response to the video, swathes of music industry giants denounced Wallen, with a number of radio stations and streaming services removed his music from their playlists. 

Spotify removed Wallen from at least 14 playlists; including the Hot Country playlist, which has 6.239 million followers, and the Pop Rising playlist with 2.04 million. Wallen’s feature on the former was his main source of discovery on Spotify. Whilst Apple Music Wallen from at least 21 playlists, including Today’s Country and A-List Pop.
