Morgan Wallen holds on to the top of Billboard 200 chart amid controversy

Morgan Wallen's racial slur scandal proved beneficial for his album sales in the US, the latest Billboard 200 chart shows. His double album 'Dangerous' earned 149,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending Feb. 4, which is up 14% when compared to the previous week, Billboard reports. It is Walen's fourth week in a row on top of Billboard 200. The last country album to spend its first four weeks at No. 1 on this chart was Shania Twain's 'Up!' in 2003.
