Morgan Wallen’s sophomore album, Dangerous: The Double Album, is sitting atop the charts at No. 1 for the third consecutive week and continues to break records, including records previously held by Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and Luke Combs.
The album was released on January 8 via Big Loud/Republic Records, and includes hit songs such as “More Than My Hometown,” “7 Summers,” “Somebody’s Problem,” “Wasted On You” and more. Dangerous: The Double Album follows Wallen’s 2018 debut effort, If I Know Me.
Wallen recently added three additional songs to a deluxe edition of his chart-topping album, including “This Side Of A Dust Cloud” and “Bandaid On A Bullet Hole,” two songs that originally appeared as bonus tracks on the Target exclusive edition of the album. He also added the Dangerous Sessions acoustic rendition of the fan-favorite track, “Sand In My Boots.”
