In addition, Dangerous is the first country album in history to spend its first 10 weeks at #1 on the Billboard 200. The album is also the first album to string together 10 weeks in a row at No. 1 in total since Adele’s 21 linked 10 weeks in 2012 (of its total 24 nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1).
Dangerous is one of just four country albums to spend at least 10 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 — since the chart began publishing on a regular weekly basis in March of 1956. The other country albums to achieve that feat were Garth Brooks’ Ropin’ the Wind (18 weeks, 1991-92), Billy Ray Cyrus’ Some Gave All (17, 1992) and Taylor Swift’s Fearless (11, 2008-09).
