FUSE Sets Simultaneous North American Chart First
Keith Urban’s seventh studio album FUSE has taken the top spot on both the United States and Canadian Pop and Country Charts this week, marking a first for the three-time Grammy Award winner. It is the second time in the United States (2009’s Defying Gravity) that Urban has hit #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 and Country Album Charts and the first time that Urban has taken the #1 album spot in Canada. In Australia, mid-week indicators show FUSE at #1, which would also mark Urban’s first #1 album in that country.
FUSE, which has already produced Urban’s 15th #1 single “Little Bit Of Everything”, is the singer’s 4th #1 Country Album in The United States. It shows no signs of slowing as the second single from the album, just released this week, marks Urban’s biggest radio add week of his career. “We Were Us”, featuring Miranda Lambert, was written by Jimmy Robbins, Nicolle Galyon and Jon Nite and was co-produced by Nathan Chapman and Urban.
