Post Malone and Morgan Wallen are making history with new single “I Had Some Help.”

 “I Had Some Help” earned 167 first week adds at country radio, becoming only the second single in chart history to debut with the support of all reporting stations (the first time being Garth Brooks’ “Longneck Bottle” in 1997, 27 years ago). The single additionally opens at No. 15 on the Mediabase chart, the second-highest debut of the monitored era only behind Brooks’ “More Than A Memory” (2007).

Praised as an “inevitable summer hit” (Rolling Stone) with “abundant hooks and a contagious momentum” (Stereogum), “I Had Some Help” broke Spotify’s single-day country streaming record with nearly 14 million streams on Friday, May 10. The song debuted No. 1 on Spotify’s Global Daily chart and became the streamer’s No. 1 male collaboration debut of all-time. “I Had Some Help” also topped Apple Music’s Global chart and was No. 1 on Pandora’s Top Thumbed chart upon release.

“Post and Morgan delivered a huge hit record; we knew we had to do our part and deliver a huge launch at country radio,” Big Loud Records SVP of Radio Promotion Stacy Blythe says. “Our radio partners made this set up incredibly exciting and we are so grateful for how they stepped up to support with no hesitation.”
