Luke Combs is breaking his own pottery with a whole bunch of achievements he made recently with his career. This simply proves that 2020 isn’t really dark for everyone.

Practically, Luke Combs is now the uncrowned prince of Country Music; getting married in August, topping the charts, and in terms of overwhelming stream-demands, he’s the guy who is a perfect fit for the role. For the cherry on top, he doesn’t ride the coattails of his former achievements. Instead, Combs leaves it to the ground as he aims for greater heights like how he broke his records through his latest 2020 album, ‘What You See Ain’t Always What You Get.’

First Week Supremacy

To begin with, the 18-track album landed on a pretty sweet spot on its debut on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart where it, alone, gained 109,000 units sale. Recently, ‘What You See Ain’t Always What You Get’ even set out a weekly streaming record for a country music album with a whopping 102.26 million on-demand streams that literally broke the original album Combs made in November 2019, ‘What You See Is What You Get’ in numbers and statistics alone.

But that’s not all. Combs also marks history through his single ‘Forever After All’ as it landed #2 in the all-genre Billboard 100 chart on its debut launch. After the launch, it also became #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. Sometime after that, it landed again at #1 in digital song sales through 29.1 Million and counting streams and 52,000 downloads.

The Uncrowned Prince of Country

As Comb’s sequel album ‘What You See Ain’t Always What You Get’ is now available globally, it still features the first 18-tracks from its preceding album with a little bonus of five new tracks exclusive in its release.

Through this handful of achievements, it led Luke Combs to bring home several awards from CMA as he carved a path for his current six nominations for next year’s entry. What’s crystal clear is that Combs was able to gather a whole new bunch of audiences who greatly appreciated his works through his record-breaking stream records.

His album and songs are available through purchase among multiple platforms ready to let you experience how the uncrowned prince of Country Music does his job in the industry.
