Future Pulls Off Historic Back-to-Back No. 1 Debuts

He's the first artist to score this victory.

Published March 5, 2017

Billboard has now confirmed that Future has officially made history.

Releasing his new albums FUTURE and HNDRXX consecutive weeks has proven to work exceptionally in his favor, resulting in the rapper becoming the first solo artist to ever debut at No. 1 on the Top 200 chart back-to-back weeks.

As reportedFUTURE sold roughly 140,000 copies in its first seven days available, with HNDRXX coming in almost just as a hot, pushing 121,000 copies in its first week.

In addition to securing the unprecedented achievement with back-to-back debuts in the No. 1 slot, Future also is the first artist to succeed himself on the Billboard 200 chart.

Although many fans were rooting on the arrival of a rumored third project to round out the impressive run, Future has plenty to celebrate in the weeks ahead, including a highly anticipated new music video featuring none other than Nicki Minaj.

Congrats on this incredible achievement, Future!

Never give up on yourself. #FUTURE #HNDRXX
