When Billboard recaps the Top 10 of this week’s Billboard 200 album consumption chart in the coming days, it will confirm that Morgan Wallen’s “Dangerous: The Double Album” has achieved an impressive milestone.

The smash hit album, which reigned as last year’s top performer and is currently #2 for 2022, will have spent 85 total weeks in the chart’s Top 10.

The figure represents a modern-era record, surpassing the 84 weeks accumulated by Adele’s “21.” The modern-era record commenced in 1991, when Billboard (and the industry at large) revised its approach to collecting sales (and later sales and total unit) data.

The 85-week achievement moreover, ties the all-time record for weeks in the Top 10 by a single act. Peter, Paul and Mary’s self-titled release spent that much time in the Top 10 between 1962-64.

Only soundtracks released prior to the modern era have spent more time in the Top 10.

With “Dangerous” landing at around #5 this week and continuing to post mammoth numbers, it should have no trouble breaking the Peter, Paul and Mary record.

  2. A third party who has access to looking up Billboard records has relayed to me that Dangerous: The Double album is also moving up the all-time chart list for the longest-running top 5 U.S. album. Currently 5th place at 64 weeks. First being the Sound of Music at 73 weeks (1965); second Thriller at 71 weeks; third Adele’s 21 at 68; and 4th Born In the USA at 66 weeks. So the album, according to this source is two weeks from tying 4th all-time chart record, and four weeks for tying the modern-era (Nielsen) record.
