Breakthrough star Kane Brown makes history this week by achieving #1 on all five Billboard country charts! Brown is the first artist ever to top Billboard’s Top Country Albums, Country Airplay, Hot Country Songs, Country Streaming Songs and Country Digital Songs charts simultaneously.
Brown takes the #1 slot on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart with his self-titled debut album on RCA Nashville/Zone 4 by amassing 43,000 in first-week consumption with the release of the Deluxe Edition on October 6. The album goes #5 on the Billboard 200 all-genre chart, the 23-year-old singer/songwriter’s first Top 5 on that chart. Brown’s original version of the album debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Albums and Top 10 on the Billboard 200 and remains country’s best-selling new-artist debut of the past three years. The Top Country Albums chart reflects traditional albums sales, track equivalent albums and streaming equivalent albums compiled by Nielsen Music. The Deluxe Edition is available HERE.
On Billboard’s Country Airplay, Hot Country Songs and Country Streaming Songs charts, the Platinum-certified smash hit “What Ifs” featuring Lauren Alaina tops all three charts this week. This marks Kane Brown’s first #1 airplay single, his first week having the #1 streaming song and, after ending Sam Hunt’s 34-consecutive-week #1 hold last week, his second week at #1 on the Hot Country Song chart. The Hot Country Songs chart reflects tracks sales, airplay and streaming and the Country Streaming chart reflects the week’s top-streamed country songs. This week, “What Ifs” also reached the summit of the Country Aircheck/Mediabase Country Airplay chart, a first for the artist.
The fifth Billboard chart Brown tops this week is the Country Digital Songs. “Heaven,” one of four new songs on the Kane Brown Deluxe Edition, debuts at #1 with 35,000 total first-week consumption. The track enters at #8 on the all-genre Billboard Digital Song chart. The Country Digital Songs chart reflects the week’s top-selling paid download country songs.
