Morgan Wallen’s ‘Dangerous’ Stays at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Amid Racial Slur Controversy
Morgan Wallen is still on top of the charts, despite controversy.
The 27-year-old country singer-songwriter, who was just dropped from his record label after being caught on camera saying a racial slur, remains at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 as of Sunday (February 7) with his Dangerous: The Double Album, the company reported.

“The set earned 149,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending Feb. 4 (up 14%), according to MRC Data. The album arrived atop the list three weeks ago, on the chart dated Jan. 23,” the outlet reported.
“Of Dangerous’ 149,000 equivalent album units earned in the tracking week ending Feb. 4, SEA units comprise 118,000 (up 3%, equaling 159.76 million on-demand streams of the album’s songs), album sales comprise 25,000 (up 102%) and TEA units comprise 6,000 (up 67%).”
The number also comes as multiple radio groups dropped his music last week, and he was removed from over 30 influential playlists on streaming. His music was not removed from any digital retailers (like iTunes), and remains available in retail stores. With Dangerous having spent its first four weeks at No. 1, it’s the first country album to do so since January 2003, Billboard also reported.
He is also now ineligible for this award.
