Luke Combs scored his unprecedented ninth consecutive No. 1 single—to start a career—with “Lovin’ On You.” The tune topped the Billboard Country Airplay chart this week after a 12-week run, which is Luke’s fastest climb to No. 1.
Luke is the first country artist in history whose first nine singles have reached No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart: “Hurricane,” “When It Rains It Pours,” “One Number Away,” “She Got the Best of Me,” “Beautiful Crazy,” “Beer Never Broke My Heart,” “Even Though I’m Leaving,” “Does to Me” and “Lovin’ On You.”
When “Beautiful Crazy” topped the charts in March 2019, Luke became the first country artist in history whose first five singles reached No. 1.
“Lovin’ On You,” which was penned by Luke, Ray Fulcher, James McNair and Thomas Archer, is the fourth single from Luke’s 2019 No. 1 album, What You See Is What You Get.
“Fun song,” says Luke. “I wrote it with Ray, James and Thomas . . . three guys I like writing songs with. Real kind of country and honk-tonky kind of [song] . . . I was in the throes of love, and there we go.”
