Morgan Wallen's album "One Thing at a Time" (released by Big Loud/Mercury/Republic) is set to mark its 19th week at the pinnacle of the charts, setting a new record for the longest-running #1 position by a country album. This achievement surpasses the former record held by Garth Brooks with his 1992 album "Ropin’ the Wind," which had a streak of 18 weeks at #1.

Taylor Swift's critically acclaimed "Midnights" (Republic), which earned the Grammy for Album of the Year, is poised to climb to the second spot. Close behind are artists such as 21 Savage, SZA, Drake, and Noah Kahan, all competing closely with Swift. Republic Records is on track to dominate this week's top 10, potentially securing seven spots.
