There's more from yesterday's announcement of a #1 album for Dan + Shay. Now the stats are in… For the first time since 2009, Dan + Shay have become the only duo or group to reach #1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay Chart, the same week their album debuted atop Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart.
The self-titled album accumulated 29 million streams during release-week alone, making it the highest debut-week-stream-total of any new country release in 2018. It’s also the only country album released this year to have all 11 tracks hit Nielsen’s Country On-Demand Streaming chart, including making the single, “Tequila,” their fourth consecutive and fastest rising #1 single to date.
The single had over 150 million on-demand streams just this week.
