Big Loud artist Morgan Wallen is notching another smash with his latest song “7 Summers,” which debuted at No. 3 on Apple Music and Spotify.
Currently, only Drake‘s “Laugh Now Cry Later” and Cardi B‘ (ft. Megan Thee Stallion)’s “WAP” are ahead of “7 Summers” on Apple Music’s Top 100: USA chart (and No. 5 on the Apple Music Top 100: Global chart).
Wallen co-wrote the track with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne, with production from Joey Moi. He released a snippet of the track, which went viral on TikTok, earning more than 24 million views prior to its official release.
“‘7 Summers’ is a song that originally I didn’t even know if it was going to make my album or if I was ever going to put it out,” shares Wallen. “But when quarantine first started, I was challenged to do a demo on Instagram so I put out the first verse and chorus of ‘7 Summers.’ I heard a lot of good feedback from it on Instagram, and then it started making the rounds on TikTok – I saw how much the song was getting played and how much people were enjoying it, even just the first verse and chorus. Social media played a huge part in me releasing this song, especially this early. It’s a cool thing – me being on the fence about it, then being able to put it out and get people’s feedback. Seeing the response played the biggest part in this release. I think that speaks to just how much fans mean to me and fans mean to music. I’m glad I’m getting to put it out and glad people are loving it, I can’t wait for y’all to hear the full version.”
