It looks like Kane Brown has plenty to be thankful for this Thanksgiving holiday. His sophomore studio album Experiment debuts atop the all-genre Billboard 200 chart (for the week dated Nov. 24), Billboard reports.
The record dropped on Nov. 9 via Zone 4-RCA Nashville and notably earned 124,000 equivalent album units for the week ending Nov. 15, per Nielsen Music data. The tally notably represents 105,000 in traditional album sales. Experiment follows previous 2018 Billboard 200 country chart-toppers Cry Pretty by Carrie Underwood and Rearview Town by Jason Aldean.
Kane Brown’s sophomore effort beats his 2016 self-titled debut album ranking, which peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 chart. His first album impressively reached the summit on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. He scored his first Hot Country Songs chart No. 1 hit with his collab single with Lauren Alaina, “What Ifs.” He also scored a Country Airplay No. 1 with the album’s fourth single “Heaven.”
Overall, 2018 has been a big year for Brown, whose rising star on the country music landscape continues to climb. He performed at the ACM Awards, where he was nominated for New Male Vocalist of the Year for the second year in a row. He also picked up three American Music Award trophies for Favorite Country Male Artist, Favorite Country Album for Kane Brown, and Favorite Country song for “Heaven.”
Experiment’s lead radio single, “Lose It,” topped Billboard’s Canada Country chart and reached No. 5 on both Billboard’s Country Airplay and Hot Country Songs charts in the U.S. He released a video for "Good as You" last month. (Watch it above). Brown will also be headlining the Live Forever Tour in 2019, which includes a stop in at the Infinite Energy Arena in Duluth, Georgia on Jan. 10 (Tickets).
