Future Set To Make History With 2 Different Albums Debuting At No. 1 On Back-To-Back Weeks
2017 is already a huge year for Future and we’re not even three full months in.
Billboard reports that the Atlanta rapper will become the first artist in history to have two different albums debuting at No. 1 on back to back weeks.
His self titled album kicked things off when it took the top spot on the Billboard 200 chart the week following it’s February 17 release, with sales of 140,000 album-equivalent units.
On February 24, Future followed that up by releasing “HNDRXX,” which is projected to land at No. 1 by selling between 110,000 and 130,000 equivalent album units in the week ending March 2.
The albums will secure the top two spots on the Billboard 200. A feat that was last accomplished by Prince, the week following his 2016 death, with the albums “The Very Best of Prince” and at No. 2 with the “Purple Rain” soundtrack.
