Toby Keith Posthumously Returns to #1 with “35 Biggest Hits”


Toby Keith fans mourned the singer’s death (Feb. 5) by listening, purchasing and downloading his music. The surge has posthumously earned Keith his fifth #1 album, topping the all-genre Billboard 200 list (dated Feb. 17) with his nearly 16-year-old greatest hits compilation.

Including singles like “Who’s Your Daddy?,” and the Willie Nelson featured “Beer for My Horses,” Keith’s “35 Biggest Hits” barely managed to take the #1 slot this week from Morgan Wallen’s “One Thing at a Time.” Wallen has topped the chart for 18 nonconsecutive weeks since its release in March 2023. “One Thing” garnered 65,000 album units this week while Keith’s compilation album logged the equivalent of 66,000 units, including 64 million streams and 11,000 copies sold, according to data provided by Luminate.

The fete earned the country star his fifth #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Toby previously topped the chart with Unleashed (2002), Shock’N Y’all (2003), Big Dog Daddy (2007) and Bullets in the Gun (2010).
