Morgan Wallen recently took to social media to address the leak of his forthcoming new album, Dangerous: The Double Album.
Fans were ecstatic when they discovered Wallen’s new album already hit some Walmart shelves, a week ahead of it’s official January 8th release date. However, the country superstar was not as impressed as he worked very hard on the new 30-track project and didn’t want a retail giant such as Walmart to leak his musical masterpiece.
Fans shared photos and videos throughout social media on Monday (Jan. 4) showcasing their find in states including North Carolina, Ohio, West Virginia, Wisconsin and more. Not only were photos shared of fans holding the new album but also videos that included snippets of unreleased songs and that really upset Wallen while he is also thankful for them being “eager” to spread the new music.
So, the “More Than My Hometown” singer released a video statement on social media, sharing that he is going to leak the music himself via his TikTok account as if anyone should be leaking his music, it should be him.
In the Instagram comments of his video statement, fellow country artist HARDY joked “damn dude even your album breaks the rules.” The comment amassed thousands of likes and replies praising the comment as the “best comment ever.”

Wallen went on to drop three leaks of songs including “Warning” “Dangerous” and “Rednecks, Red Letters, Red Dirt” on TikTok, all of which are set to appear on his forthcoming new album, Dangerous: The Double Album. You can hear the three new songs HERE.
Dangerous: The Double Album is set for release on January 8th, 2021.
