Morgan Wallen’s “One Thing At A Time” album earned its fifth-largest streaming week ever in U.S. history, according to preliminary data released Friday.

Wallen’s latest incredible works of music have already won the largest streaming week for any country album ever, as well as the biggest streaming week for any album of any genre in 2023, Billboard reported. The 36-track album collectively generated 437 million on-demand official streams in the U.S. in the last seven days.

Only Drake and Taylor Swift have had larger streaming weeks than Wallen, who just released the full album March 3. The fifth-place record-holder replaced Lil Wayne for his album “Tha Carter V,” which earned 433.02 million in 2018.

Wallen’s “Dangerous: The Double Album,” released in 2021, spent 10 weeks at the top of the Billboard 200 chart. The work broke a slew of records, and it still holds the No. 6 spot on the billboard chart as of March 10, 2023, according to Billboard.

It’s expected that “One Thing At A Time” will also top the charts by Sunday. The success would come just as Wallen sets off on another world-wide tour to promote the album. It’s like this kid can’t sit still for a moment, and all of the music he touches turns to gold!
