Maren Morris’ new album, Girl, streamed to success after being released on March 8.
With 23.96 million streams in its first week, Girl broke the record for most streams by a female artist in the country genre, besting Carrie Underwood’s 2018 album, Cry Pretty (14.44 million streams).
Girl moved 46,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music, which puts it at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. Girl is also No. 4 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart.
“I am blown away by the support this last week,” says Maren. “My fans were already screaming the lyrics at the show the day after the album came out. I am so shocked and thankful to have broken this record for country music!”
The album’s title track is currently No. 25 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart after nine weeks. The 14-track offering also features collaborations with Brothers Osborne on “All My Favorite People” and Brandi Carlile on “Common.”
Maren is currently on the North American leg of her Girl World Tour with stops in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Houston, Dallas, Philadelphia, New York and beyond this spring before heading to Europe and Australia.
