Sam Hunt Is First Artist Not Named Luke Combs to Have a Country Album Spend Consecutive Weeks at No. 1 Since 2018

Sam Hunt’s Southside is No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart for the second consecutive week.

Sam’s back-to-back triumph puts an end to an interesting streak Luke Combs was compiling.

Since November 2018, Luke had been the only artist to spend consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. Luke’s 17-month streak featured a combination of chart-topping success from his 2017 album (This One’s for You), 2019 album (What You See Is What You Get), and 2019 EP (The Prequel).

During the last 17 months, Luke notched 14 instances of two or more consecutive weeks atop the chart, which was highlighted by two streaks of eight consecutive weeks in February/March 2020 and June/July/August 2019.

According to Nielsen Music, Sam’s Southside sold 21,579 equivalent units last week, while Luke’s What You See Is What You Get sold 21,574 equivalent units. Sam ended Luke’s streak by a margin of five units!
