During the MLK Independence Day holiday, rapper Lil Durk brought out Morgan Wallen to perform his new collab, “Broadway Girls.” The collaboration was originally released on December 17 and instantly soared to No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. The single also made Wallen the fourth artist in history to reach No. 1 on both the Hot Country Songs and the Hot R&B/Hip-Hip Songs charts.

Earlier this month, Wallen was caught on video yelling the N-word and using a racially slur. His label immediately suspended his contract, but the video was quickly shared online, causing Wallen to receive serious backlash. As a result, Wallen’s record label pulled his music from their platforms. As a result, Wallen’d lost his record contract with Big Loud.

However, Wallen’s performance has caused a backlash. After the clip went viral, Apple Music and Spotify removed Wallen’s tracks from their playlists. Major radio stations cut Wallen’s music from their playlists. The album was also pulled from their rotations. As a result, his contract with Big Loud was suspended indefinitely.

The performance of “Broadway Girls” was a rare opportunity for Wallen to make a comeback after a year’s absence, with a rap legend bringing out a controversial country star. The two reunited on stage for the first time since the infamous n-word video last year. The album is expected to be released on December 17, 2021.

In addition to the original song, Wallen also performed “Broadway Girls” with Lil Durk at the 2022 MLK Freedom Fest in Nashville. During his performance, the Chicago rapper brought out the singer with him. They also performed a cover of “Broadway Girls” by Ernest. The two had previously cancelled each other’s performances after a controversy over a video of Wallen using the n-word in 2018.

The singer also brought out the Grammy-winning country duo, The Black Opry. The two artists performed “Broadway Girls” together, and Wallen was one of the artists to sing it. The duo were joined by Moneybagg Yo and Rod Wave. Afterwards, he performed “Flower Shops” with ERNEST. During his set, Lil Durk also announced his first solo album, but he has not yet revealed any details.

In February, the country singer’s career was impacted after he uttered a racial slur. The singer’s song was removed from the radio after he apologized and said he was on “hour 72 of my bender.” As a result, his album was dropped from radio and his booking agent suspended him. In the same year, he was also banned from performing at the 2021 ACM and CMA Awards.
