Olivia Truzzolino

Released on March 3rd, Morgan Wallen’s “One Thing at a Time” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with 501,000 equivalent album units earned (Billboard’s term for physical sales, streaming, and digital downloads, combined).  With more than 498 million streams, Wallen’s album tops country music’s all-time high and lands at No. 5 of all time.  The debut of “One Thing at a Time” was also the biggest album drop since the release of Taylor Swift’s “Midnights.”  


“One Thing at a Time” truly showcases Wallen’s wide range of musical influences and combines his love for country, rock, and hip-hop.  In a previous statement, Wallen shared, “This record represents the last few years of my life, the highs and lows.  It also brings together the musical influences that have shaped me as an artist – country, alternative, and hip-hop.” With a total of 36 tracks on the album, Wallen authentically showcases his many talents as a country artist.  Additionally, Wallen is the first solo male artist to claim the No. 1 spot on both the Billboard Hot 100 and the Hot Country Songs chart since 1981.  


Although the album has had immense success since its debut, individual songs have also cemented their spots on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.  Wallen’s single from the album, “Last Night”, has landed itself the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.  Similarly, “Thought You Should Know” holds the No. 7 spot, “You Proof” holds the No. 8 spot, “Thinkin’ Bout Me” holds the No. 9 spot, and “”One Thing at a Time”” holds the No. 10 spot.  In short, Wallen is without a doubt the biggest Country artist in the world right now, and will have millions of fans supporting him even further during his upcoming “One Thing at a Time” World Tour.
