Luke Combs continues his record-breaking streak at radio with his latest single, “Better Together,” which has reached No. 1 this week on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart. The song marks Combs’ tenth consecutive No. 1. The song hit No. 1 on the MusicRow CountryBreakout Chart in December.
The accomplishment is just the latest in a series of groundbreaking and historic few years for Combs, whose global No. 1 album, What You See Is What You Get, is newly-certified RIAA double Platinum. Combs’ new deluxe album, What You See Ain’t Always What You Get, also debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart as well as Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. A song from the deluxe album, “Forever After All,” landed at No. 2 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart as well, marking the highest entrance ever for a male country solo artist. With the release, Combs also reached No. 1 on Rolling Stone’s Top 200 Albums chart, Top 100 Songs chart and Artists 500 chart, making him the first country artist ever to lead all three charts in the same week and first to top the Artists 500.
Combs also recently made history as the first artist ever to have their first two studio albums spend 25 weeks or more at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart—breaking Taylor Swift’s previously held record at 24 weeks. The achievement comes as What You See Is What You Get topped the chart for the 25th time this past summer, while his 2017 debut, This One’s For You, has spent 50 non-consecutive weeks at No. 1, tying the record for the longest reign atop the chart with Shania Twain’s Come On Over in 1997.
