There’s no stopping the force that is country superstar Luke Combs.

After dropping his 17-track sophomore album, What You See Is What You Get, on November 8, the North Carolina native debuted at the top of the all-genre Billboard 200 chart as well as Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart with a whopping 172,000 equivalent units sold. The album also topped the charts globally, with a No.1 debut in Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom.

In addition, What You See Is What You Get notched 74 million on-demand streams during its debut week, making it the largest streaming week ever for a country album.

That not all – Combs’ current hit single, “Even Though I’m Leaving,” reached the top of both the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase charts this week, marking Combs’s seventh consecutive chart-topping single.

These achievements come on the heels of Combs’ incredible night at last week’s CMA Awards where he was crowned CMA Male Vocalist of the Year and took home the trophy for Song of the Year for “Beautiful Crazy.”

What You See Is What You Get is available to stream and purchase now. Next year, Luke Combs will hit the road in support of the album on his headling What You See Is What You Get Tour.
