Wallen will be releasing additional music

Morgan Wallen continues to make history as his latest single, “Don’t Think Jesus,” tops Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. The track, released on April 15th via Mercury/Republic/Big Loud Records, rocketed to the top of the airplay, streaming and sales-based chart, dated April 30th.

This marks Wallen’s fifth career No. 1 with three record-breaking singles that have opened at the top. The track sold 21,500 downloads and drew 18.1 million US streams within its first week of release, according to Billboard.

Morgan is one of two artists who have debuted multiple songs atop of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. Taylor Swift follows with “All Too Well (Taylor’s Version)” and “Love Story (Taylor’s Version).” Eleven songs have debuted on the chart during its lifespan.

“Jesus” was written by Jessi Alexander, Mark Holman and Chase McGill with “Wallen in mind.” It’s his first new solo music since releasing his record-breaking¬†Dangerous: The Double Album that topped the Billboard Top 200 chart its first 10 weeks, at the height of being blacklisted after he was caught on video using a racial slur in February 2021.

Wallen’s “Wasted on You” is his current single that’s being promoted to country radio from Dangerous.

The singer has additional music in the pipeline. He will release “Thought You Should Know” on Friday, May 6th, dedicated to his mother for Mother’s Day and will follow with “Fool Proof” on Friday, May 13th, the singer’s 29th birthday that he calls a “birthday present to myself” when teasing it on TikTok.

Wallen has recently teamed with Lil Durk for “Broadway Girls” and Ernest for “Flower Shops.”

He’s also headlining Faster Horses 2022 with Tim McGraw and Eric Church, and has sold more than 705,000 tickets to his headlining Dangerous Tour that runs through the fall. He will also perform his first-ever headlining stadium show this fall in Arlington, TX.

In 2022, $3 from every ticket sold on his Dangerous Tour benefits More Than My Hometown Foundation. The three-night stop at Bridgestone last week alone raised over $120,000 that will be put into initiatives for adolescent development, resources and local communities.
