Morgan Wallen Finds Success with “7 Summers”
Morgan Wallen is a Country star with a promising future. His latest single “7 Summers” launches him to the top of the Country Songwriters chart for the first time in his career. Additionally, the singer finds four of his songs on the Hot Country Songs chart. Furthermore, as an artist Morgan has earned 10 career entries on the Hot Country Songs. Most noteworthy, “Whiskey Glasses” became his first number one last year. “Chasin’ You” hit the number 2 spot in May and the Diplo track he featured on, “Heartless”, hit 10 back in June.
Diving into other charts, it may make you wonder. Morgan Wallen seems to be setting his career up for longevity. Country fans (and non-Country fans) are seemingly quite receptive of Morgan’s releases. With the song “7 Summers” finding success on Apple Music, the song finds it way into the chart’s top three. Only trailing the likes of Drake and Cardi B featuring Megan Thee Stallion. Typically speaking, this chart is generally dominated by releases from Rap, Pop, R&B, and Dance artists. However, it is quite rare a Country musician makes their way into this territory. Something special is happening with this young man’s career. With 4.6 million streams on its first day, this is surprising.
Most noteworthy, Wallen is also finding success on other streaming platforms as well. ‘7 Summers’ also debuts at number 3 on Spotify’s U.S. daily chart, scoring over 2 million streams. Additionally, the song made it to number 4 on Billboard’s Streaming Songs chart for the week, with a total of over 23 million streams for the first week according to Nielsen Music. Add 700,000+ airplay impressions from radio, and a number 2 entry on the Digital Song Sales chart… Morgan Wallen has scored the highest debut as a solo Country male since Garth Brooks.
Keep an eye on the charts to see how Morgan continues to chart. Is Country music on the rise? Or is Wallen just a unique case? Time will tell.
