Dan + Shay’s massive hit “10,000 Hours,” featuring pop superstar Justin Bieber, just keeps getting bigger.
After making history as the fastest country song in the past year to reach one million equivalents, the song has now reached the top spot on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck and Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, marking the duo’s fourth consecutive chart-topping single and seventh overall. Additionally, the country/pop smash is simultaneously No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs, Country Streaming Songs and Country Digital Song Sales charts. To date, “10,000 Hours” has raked in over 650 million global streams and more than 1.7 million U.S. track equivalents since its October 2019 release.
“When I got the news that ‘10,000 Hours’ was No.1 on Aircheck / Mediabase and all four Billboard Country Charts simultaneously, my mind was truly blown,” Dan Smyers said. “We know that it takes the support of a lot of people to make the stars align like this, and we’re incredibly grateful for every bit of it.”
The chart news comes ahead of the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards where the duo is currently nominated for Best Country Song and Best Country Duo/Group Performance for their 3x Platinum song “Speechless.” Dan + Shay took home their first Grammy for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for their massive hit “Tequila” in 2019.
After heading to Miami to perform prior to Super Bowl LIV, Dan + Shay will launch their first-ever arena tour on March 6 in Nashville.
