Future Earns His Fourth No. 1 Album on the Billboard 200 With Self-Titled Release
As expected, Future has earned his fourth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 with his self-titled project, Future.
The rapper released the album just two weeks ago, following it up the very next week with another full-length project, HNDRXX. The rapper's previous No. 1 debuts include Evol (2016), What a Time to Be Alive (with Drake) and DS2—both of which were released in 2015. Forecasters are predicting that HNDRXX, released on Feb. 24, could also land at No. 1, which would make Future the first artist in history to have back-to-back, successive No. 1 debuts.
According to Billboard, more than half of Future's sales were powered by streaming, at 73,000 units, with the rest comprised of traditional album sales (60,000) and track equivalent album units (7,000).
You can listen to HNDRXX, which sparked controversy for his numerous references to ex-Ciara, here, while we wait to see if it too, will hit No. 1.
