Future Might Be Dropping a Third Album Next Week
Update 2 (Feb. 27, 11:34 a.m. EST):
Future's manager Anthony Saleh has responded to rumors that there's a third album dropping this week, tweeting simply, "FALSE."
Update (Feb. 27, 9:51 a.m. EST):
A new description for the Thursday (March 2) episode of Ellen lists Future as a guest and reads, "He has the #1 album in the country this week with “Future,” and is attempting to have three #1 albums in a row in three weeks – which will make him the first in history to do that! He’s bringing it all to Ellen!" The plot thickens.
Atlanta superstar Future has dropped two albums, FUTURE and HNDRXX, in as many weeks, but now there are new reports saying he's dropping a third album next Friday as well.
NPR wrote an article called "Predicting The Future: With 'HNDRXX,' Mixtape Culture Infiltrates The Music Industry" today, and early in the article, there's this curious sentence: "There are already unconfirmed reports that the Atlanta rapper and his label Epic will follow up this second release with a third album."
Just today, it was announced that FUTURE will be the No. 1 album in the country this week, and judging by Future's trajectory, it look like HNDRXX could go No. 1 the week after. Never in the 61-year history of the Billboard Top 200 chart has an artist ever hit No. 1 in consecutive weeks with different albums. If Future does it three weeks in a row, he'd be making history yet again.
XXL has reached out to Future's team for comment.
