Future Becomes First Artist to Debut at No. 1 on Billboard Charts in Consecutive Weeks
A new Billboard report has confirmed what we all expected: Future is now the first artist to ever debut at No. 1 on the Top 200 chart in back-to-back weeks.
Last week, FUTURE topped the chart, selling roughly 140,000 copies first week. Now, HNDRXX has bumped it off, moving 121,000 copies in its first seven days.
That also makes Future the first artist since 1968 to ever supplant himself at the No. 1 spot, and the first solo artist to ever lay claim to the achievement.
Of the 121,000 copies HNDRXX sold, 48,000 were traditional sales, with an additional 68,000 streaming equivalent albums and 11,000 track equivalent albums making up the rest of that total sum.
In addition, Hendrix is the first artist to inhabit the No. 1 and No. 2 spots on the chart since Prince did it last year with The Very Best of Prince and Purple Rain following his death. Before that, Nelly was the last to do it in 2004 when Suit and Sweat took both slots.
