Back in February, country music star Morgan Wallen was "cancelled" for drunkenly referring to his white friend as a "pussy ass n*****" in a late-night video that was captured by a Ring camera in his Nashville neighborhood.
While the cancellation meant no radio play, award shows, or touring for Wallen for a while, it didn't hurt his album sales at all: His Dangerous: The Double Album went triple platinum and was the best-selling album of 2021. (Perhaps in part because of his limited radio play.)
Wallen expects to be completely uncancelled in 2022, and he is heading into the year with an unlikely collaboration with somebody else who likes to drop N-bombs.
Here's Lil Durk X Wallen with "Broadway Girls".
This sounds like a hit. How do you feel about Durk helping to clean up Wallen's damaged image?
