From the No. 1 song on the iTunes all-genre chart to the most-added single at country radio upon release, superstar Blake Shelton’s “Happy Anywhere” continues to occupy the top of the charts (Listen Here). One week after release, the “joyous duet” (People) takes No. 1 on the Country Digital Song Sales chart, selling nearly 27,000 tracks. The single has staked its claim in the streaming space as well, garnering nearly 4.5 million streams and nearly 60,000 U.S track equivalents to date.

“I’m glad everyone is loving the song as much as we do,” said Shelton. “It’s been fun for us to perform the song a few times and I can’t wait to be able to play this song on stage with an audience. Until then we’re going to be happy where we are.”

“Happy Anywhere,” featuring Gwen Stefani and written by Ross Copperman, Josh Osborne and Matt Jenkins, is proving to be a favorite among critics. MusicRow described the song as “bopping, sunny and bright, plus loaded with romantic optimism,” stating: “If I’ve ever heard a quarantine/pandemic love song, this is it.” The Oklahoman proclaimed that Shelton and Stefani “have another sweet, surefire hit duet on their hands.” The two hit-makers debuted the single on release day on NBC’s TODAY Summer 2020 Citi Music Series (You can watch here).

The accompanying music video, directed by Todd Stefani and featuring footage captured from Stefani’s personal cell phone, has garnered nearly three million views to date, watch below:

The feel-good duet is the follow-up single to Shelton and Stefani’s “Nobody But You,” which has been RIAA-certified Platinum and held No. 1 on the country charts for multiple weeks, marking Shelton’s 27th career No. 1. The duo debuted the track on the 61st GRAMMY Awards earlier this year, where Shelton was also nominated for Country Solo Performance for his massive single “God’s Country.” The title track off his most recent album Fully Loaded: God’s Country, the anthemic song took home the CMA award for Single of the Year last year and is currently up for Single, Song and Video of the Year at the 55th ACM Awards.
