Back To Back: Future Moves Closer To Making Billboard Chart History


Future is on cloud 9 this week! The ATL rapper has reached No. 1 on the Billboard album chart for a fourth time this week. Next week, he may make chart history with a fifth album.

According to The New York Times:

Future’s self-titled Epic Records released album (Feb. 17), went directly to No. 1 with 109 million streams and 60,000 sales in its first week, per data from Nielsen. In the new “multi-metric consumption” formula used by Nielsen and Billboard to gather the various ways that listeners now access music, “Future” had the equivalent of 140,000 full album sales. It is his fourth time at number 1 spot, after DS2, Evol and What a Time to Be Alive, the dope collaboration effort with Drake.

In even bigger news, next week may be even greater for Future Hendrix. His second surprise new album this year, HNDRXX, was released on this past Friday, and according to early data collected by BuzzAngle — a Nielsen competitor that publishes daily sales updates — it has the advantage to be numero uno next week. If that happens, Future would be the first artist in the six-decade history of the Billboard 200 to have two new albums make their debuts at #1 on successive charts. John Mayer‘s release would be the only competition that could block him from the top spot.

Either way, it goes, a congrats is in order to Future for providing great content Back-to-Back!
