Jordan Davis achieves his highest rank to date on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, as Bluebird Days swoops in at No. 3 on the list dated March 4.
Released Feb. 17, the LP opens with a weekly career-best 19,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Feb. 23, according to Luminate. Concurrently, it debuts at No. 19 on the all-genre Billboard 200, also a career-best placement.
Bluebird Days sports 17 songs, 15 of which Davis co-wrote. It follows Buy Dirt, which arrived at its No. 11 Top Country Albums best in June 2021; his self-named EP (No. 16, June 2018); and his first full-length, Home State (No. 6, April 2018).
Davis’ single “Buy Dirt” (featuring Luke Bryan), which ruled the streaming-, airplay- and sales-based Hot Country Songs survey for four frames and Country Airplay for two beginning in January 2022, is included on both Bluebird Days and its namesake set.
Bluebird Days has also yielded “What My World Spins Around,” which paced Country Airplay for two frames this January, giving Davis his fourth No. 1, after reaching No. 8 on Hot Country Songs in December, marking his sixth top 10.
Davis’ latest single, “Next Thing You Know,” hops 26-19 on Hot Country Songs, up 37% to 7.3 million streams, and leaps 59-51 on Country Airplay (1.3 million, up 95%).
