Morgan Wallen had the best-selling album of 2021 despite finding himself at the center of controversy for a racial slur scandal.
The country singer's "Dangerous: The Double Album" sold 3 million copies, surpassing other highly anticipated albums from the past year, including Olivia Rodrigo's "Sour" EP and Drake's "Certified Lover Boy," multiple outlets, including Billboard, reported, citing statistics from MRC Data.
Wallen received backlash online and in the country music industry in February after a video surfaced of him using the N-word. Even though he was nominated for multiple Academy of Country Music Awards, Wallen was not included in the ceremony in any capacity.
He was also dropped by his record label and his music was banned from iHeartRadio.
