Luke Combs Sets Records and Celebrates #1 Song and Record
By: @KurtBardella from San Juan



Luke Combs’ What You See Is What You Get debuts this week at #1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart as well as Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart with 172,000 equivalent units sold. It is also a global No. 1 album, topping charts in Canada, Australia, and the U.K. The record enjoyed the largest streaming week ever for a country album with 74 million on-demand streams. It also achieved the biggest first week of album streams for a country artist ever on Apple Music within its first two days of release and was the first country album ever to hit #1 on the platform’s U.S. overall albums chart, while also setting a new global record for first-week streams for a country album at Spotify and the Amazon Music record for more first-week streams than any other country album debut. If that wasn’t enough, Luke’s current single, “Even Though I’m Leaving,” is the #1 song on Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase charts this week making it his seventh-consecutive #1 single and extending his record-breaking streak at country radio.

I’m hopping on a plane to head on the Virgin Islands, where, I predict, I will have very little internet/cell service so this is the last edition of the Morning Hangover until I get back home next week. Hope you all have a wonderful rest of your week and thanks to all of you for reading my little tipsheet every day and making this amazing life I live possible.
