Future’s ‘Future Hndrxx Presents: The Wizrd’ Album Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard 200
The new album moved 126,000 equivalent album units in its first week out, according to Nielsen Music. That tally included 15,000 in album sales. The LP generated 143.6 million on-demand audio streams, which marks Future’s largest streaming week for an album. His previous high was 123.4 million streams, which was gained by his 2018 collab with Juice Wrld, Wrld on Drugs.
The chart placement gives Super his sixth No. 1 album on the chart. The previous chart-toppers include DS2 (2015), What a Time to Be Alive (2015), Evol (2016), his self-titled album (2017) and Hndrxx (2017). Future has completed the feat of six No. 1s in just under three years and six months. The last artist to reach that feat this quickly was rock legend Elton John.
Other rappers in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 include A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, whose Hoodie SZN album falls to No. 3 after sitting in the top spot. 21 Savage’s I Am > I Was slides to No. 5. Meek Mill’s Championships sits at No. 6, Post Malone’s Beerbongs & Bentleys is No. 7, while Travis Scott's Astroworld rounds out the top 10.
Future's new album has also helped him achieve new heights in the singles department. The album's lead single "Crushed Up" helped the rapper tie Taylor Swift for the most Billboard Hot 100 hits.
