Dan + Shay’s “I Should Probably Go To Bed” sits atop the Mediabase Country chart this week. 

The soaring ballad marks the duo’s eighth career No.1 and fifth consecutive chart-topper.

“We’re honestly so happy about this we could cry,” the duo shared on Twitter upon hearing the news. “We poured our hearts and souls into making this song at home during quarantine, and to see country radio + our fans embrace it has truly meant the world. Huge thanks to everyone who made ISPGTB the #1 song this week!”

To date, “I Should Probably Go To Bed” has raked in over one million track equivalents and is on its way to more than 200 million global streams.

“I Should Probably Go To Bed” was written in early 2020 was produced entirely by the duo’s Dan Smyers and every instrument was performed and recorded by Smyers at his home studio in Nashville, TN. Smyers and Shay Mooney co-wrote the song with Sean Douglas and Jason Evigan. 

“We wrote part of this song in Los Angeles during Grammy week but finished it at my house, on my piano, kind of by accident,” Smyers previously explained. “Shay had come over to record vocals on another song that we had written. We took a break, went downstairs, started singing this song, and realized this song needs a big ending. So we really went for it.”

He went on to praise Mooney’s vocals, calling it one of his “favorite vocal performances of all time.” 

The two-time GRAMMY winners are expected to release their fourth studio album sometime this year.
