Brown first topped the Billboard Top Country Albums chart with the release of his self-titled debut album (2016) and again with the release of Kane BrownDeluxe Edition (2017), which debuted a No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums and Top 5 on Billboard 200 Charts. With his debut album, the 25-year-old singer/songwriter made history by becoming the first-ever artist to top all five Billboard Country Charts with his breakthrough No. 1 Top Country Album; No. 1 debuting Country Digital Song, the Triple-Platinum “Heaven”; and No. 1 Country Airplay, Hot Country Song and Country Streaming Song, the Quadruple-Platinum “What Ifs” featuring Lauren Alaina. Brown recently topped the airplay charts with his third consecutive No. 1 single at country radio, “Lose It.” “Lose It” follows chart-topping hits “What Ifs” and “Heaven,” which is nominated for Country Song of the Year for the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards. Brown’s current single, “Good As You” impacted country radio this week as the No. 1 most-added song.
