Morgan Wallen’s ‘One Thing’ Returns to No. 1 for the 13th Time

Nearly halfway through the year, Morgan Wallen has spent most of it on top.

For the 13th time out of the 25 chart weeks so far in 2023, the country singer’s blockbuster album “One Thing at a Time” sits at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, returning to the highest perch after two weeks at No. 2. “One Thing at a Time” had spent the previous 12 consecutive weeks at No. 1 following its release in March, before being temporarily topped by a new edition of Taylor Swift’s “Midnights” and a CD barrage from the K-pop group Stray Kids.

Wallen’s album totaled 112,000 equivalent units in its 15th week of release, including 141 million digital streams and 4,500 in album sales. Its 13 weeks at No. 1 matches dominant albums from the last decade by Bad Bunny (“Un Verano Sin Ti,” 2022), Drake (“Views,” 2016) and the soundtrack for “Frozen” (2014). Adele’s “21” was the last album with more than 13 weeks at No. 1 in 2011 and 2012, Billboard reports.

In part because of Wallen’s dominance, this year marks the first time since 1993 that no rap album or single has topped the Billboard charts by this point in the calendar. “A Gift and a Curse,” the new album by the Atlanta rapper Gunna — his first since being released from jail after pleading out of the RICO case that also includes his mentor, Young Thug — will debut on the album chart next week.

Rounding out the Top 5 this week are albums by the former One Direction singer Niall Horan, whose “The Show” starts at No. 2 with 81,000 units; a deluxe reissue of “Stick Season” by the pop singer-songwriter Noah Kahan, which totaled 71,000 units at No. 3; Swift’s “Midnights,” at No. 4 with 69,000 units; and the producer Metro Boomin’s “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” soundtrack, at No. 5 with 54,000 units. “5-Star” by Stray Kids, last week’s No. 1, falls to No. 6.
