Toby Keith Posthumously Returns To The Top Spot On The Billboard 200 With His Album, “35 Biggest Hits”

Toby Keith has achieved his fifth No. 1 album posthumously, leading the Billboard 200 chart (dated Feb. 17) with his roughly 16-year-old greatest hits collection.

Keith’s “35 Biggest Hits,” which has Willie Nelson’s “Beer for My Horses” and folk and country hits like “Who’s Your Daddy?,” just knocked out Morgan Wallen’s “One Thing at a Time” to take the top spot this week. The latter, a country album as well, debuted at the top of the chart for eighteen weeks in a row after its release in March 2023.

Luminate statistics shows that this week, “One Thing” sold 65,000 album units while Keith’s compilation album registered the equivalent of 66,000 units, comprising 11,000 copies sold and 64 million streams.

The 62-year-old country music icon passed away on February 5th, following a battle with stomach cancer, which he initially disclosed to the public in June 2022. According to the confirmation statement posted on his website on social media, “He fought his fight with grace and courage.”

Following SZA’s significant placing at the Grammy Awards, the R&B singer’s “SOS” rises to No. 3 on the list, with two country hitmakers holding the top two spots. At the presentation on February 4, SZA won three trophies in total. During the commercial breaks of the concert, she debuted a new track named “Saturn” and entertained the audience with a rendition of “Kill Bill.”
