Future Gets His Fourth Consecutive No. 1 Album
As his self-titled album states, Future remains in high demand, securing his fourth consecutive no. 1 album this week. Following the success of DS2, What a Time to Be Alive and Evol, Future debuts atop the Billboard Album 200 chart this week, and the prolific rapper may just be getting started, dropping a second album today with HNDRXX.
The two-piece drop comes with a handful of television appearances as well, Future performing "Draco" on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon earlier this week with DJ Esco. Next Thursday meanwhile (Mar. 2) he'll make his debut on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, performing a HNDRXX cut, possibly his Rihanna-collaboration "Selfish." Early projections forecast Future moving 150,000 equivalent album units in its first week, and he currently has three songs on the Billboard Hot 100 including his Maroon 5 collaboration "Cold."
Future himself celebrated the achievement on Twitter, writing, "#1 #2 album in the world god got me, Sorry." It remains to be seen what sort of work HNDRXX does, but the precedent is clearly set.
Earlier this month, Future announced that he, Young Thug, A$AP Ferg, Migos, Kodak Black and Tory Lanez will hit the road together come May for their Nobody Safe Tour. Tickets for the tour are on sale now, with each purchase coming with a digital copy of Future.
