Major congratulations are in order for Future! He is the first artist in history to have two number one albums on the Billboard 200 Albums chart at the same damn time!
As expected, Atlanta rapper Future debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with his fifth chart-topper, HNDRXX. It replaces his own self-titled album, which bowed at No. 1 a week earlier.
Future is the first act in the nearly 61-year history of the chart to achieve back-to-back No. 1 debuts in successive weeks. The rapper is also the first artist to succeed himself at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 at all since 1968. Additionally, the first soloist ever to claim the honor.
He took to his Twitter to express his happiness in a series of tweets.
HNDRXX is Future’s fifth No. 1 album. It follows Future (2017), Evol (2016), What a Time to Be Alive (with Drake) and DS2 (both in 2015). Congrats again Future!
Be sure to download his No. 1 albums on Apple Music or Tidal today if you haven’t already!
