Kane Brown Makes Billboard History
Kane Brown makes history this week by claiming the Number One spot on all five Billboard country charts. He is the very first artist ever to top Billboard’s Top Country Albums, Country Airplay, Hot Country Songs, Country Streaming Songs and Country Digital Songs charts simultaneously. His latest single, “What Ifs,” featuring Lauren Alaina, is also his very first Number One hit.
“It feels awesome, it’s something that I . . . it’s been a milestone of mine for a while now, going on two years, and I’m just glad that me and my team finally got it.”
What if we came from the same small town in Georgia? What if we we became friends in chorus class in middle school? What if we got older and had the same dream? What if we met up again years later in Nashville? What if we got to record a song together? What if the song sold over a million copies? What if the song went number one? What if all of these what ifs were true? 😭 Theres no one I would rather have a number one song with. I'm so proud of you @kanebrown_music, and I'm honored to be a part of this song and your journey. #LFOBABY #GOWARRIORS
With 43,000 total consumption, Kane’s Deluxe Edition release propels his self-titled album to first-week showings of Number One on Billboard Top Country Albums and Top Five on the all-genre Billboard 200 charts. The original version of the album also debuted at Number One on the Billboard Top Albums and Top 10 on the Billboard 200. It remains country’s best-selling new-artist debut of the past three years.
Kane sits at the top of the Country Digital Songs chart with “Heaven,” one of four new songs on the Kane Brown Deluxe Edition.
