Last week, the XXL staff took a shot at how many units Future’s sophomore album, Honest, would move. Well, the results are in and Future Hendrix sold a total of 53,352 units in its first week on the Billboard 200 chart–good enough to land him in the number two spot. The 53,000 plus were a step up from his debut album’s, Pluto, first week sales which totaled 41,000.

There was also a debate last week as to whether Iggy Azalea’s The New Classic would outsell Honest. Though it came close, The New Classic fell short, selling a respectable 52,392 units despite less than stellar reviews. The New Classic debuted at number three on the charts, right behind Honest.

Hip-hop held down four out of the top five Billboard 200 spots as Pharrell’s G I R L held fast at number four with 21,000 units sold (325,000 total) and August Alsina’s Testimony came in at number five with 20,000 sold (87,000 total).
