Morgan Wallen’s Dangerous: The Double Album is No. 1 for a sixth week on the Billboard 200 as of Sunday (February 21). The run marks the most weeks atop the list for a male artist since Drake’s Views spent 13 nonconsecutive weeks at the top in 2016. Only three albums have spent at least six weeks at No. 1 in the last five years: Dangerous, Taylor Swift’s Folklore (eight nonconsecutive weeks, 2020) and Drake’s Views (13).

Earlier in the month, video footage surfaced of the 27-year-old Wallen using a racial slur, which resulted in him being suspended from his record label and ineligible for some music awards.
