Kane Brown’s sophomore album, Experiment, debuted No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart this week with 124,000 units.
The album marks only the third country album of 2018 to debut atop the Billboard 200 chart, following Carrie Underwood’s Cry Pretty and Jason Aldean’s Rearview Town. The album also makes Brown the only male country artist in 24 years to debut atop the Billboard 200 with a sophomore release; the previous occurrence came in 1994, with Tim McGraw’s Not A Moment Too Soon.
The top-shelf album debut follows several career sales milestones for Brown, including the quadruple Platinum single “What Ifs” (ft. Lauren Alaina), triple-Platinum “Heaven,” and a Platinum-certified debut album.
With Kane Brown and now Experiment, Brown has spent 11 weeks in 2018 atop the Billboard Top Country Albums chart.
