Chart Check [Billboard 200]: Future Reigns With 2nd Consecutive Chart-Topper

As reported here, ‘Purple Reign’ rapper Future is the first act in the history of the Billboard 200 to replace himself at the chart’s summit in successive weeks with two different albums.

After dominating the tally with the February 17th-released surprise album, ‘Future,’ the emcee – born Nayvadius Wilburn – followed up with another surprise album, ‘HNDRXX.’  The latter, like its predecessor, premiered at #1 on the album charts.

Billboard reports:

HNDRXX bows with 121,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending March 2, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 48,000 were in traditional album sales, 63,000 were in SEA and 11,000 were in TEA. (All units are rounded to the nearest thousand.) HNDRXX was released on Feb. 24 through A-1/Freebandz/Epic Records.

It follows Future’s self-titled No. 1 debut, which was issued on the same imprints/label, on Feb. 17. The self-titled album slips from No. 1 to No. 2 on the latest chart with 64,000 units (down 54 percent).

Tuck in to see who joins Wilburn in the top 25 on this week’s refreshed “Chart Check:  Billboard 200”:

The Numbers Are In: Future Makes History With Back To Back #1 Albums

‘HNDRXX’ Hits #1 Just A Week After ‘Future: The Album’

A week after seeing his self-titled fifth album top the Billboard 200, rapper Future pulls a repeat by topping the same chart with its follow-up, ‘HNDRXX.’

As predicted, despite clocking a lower sales equivalence than its feature-less forerunner, ‘HNDRXX’ still managed to move enough units to see it debut at #1 on this week’s refreshed chart.  The measure makes him the first act in Billboard history to achieve back-to-back No.1 debuts on the Billboard 200 in successive weeks.  Additionally, the ‘Real Sistas’ rapper lays claim to another unique title:  the first solo artist to ever replace himself at #1 on the album chart.

Curious to know just how many units ‘HNDRXX’ shifted to achieve the historic feat?  Find out inside:

Chart Check [Billboard 200]: Future’s Self-Titled Album Debuts at #1

Future stunned fans when he announced the surprise release of his fifth album, the self-titled effort ‘Future.’

A feature-less affair, the album not only led a pack of hip hop releases releases for the week, but also outpaced top-sellers from other genres to lay claim on the Billboard 200’s top spot.

Billboard reports:

Future scores his fourth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart as his new self-titled effort starts atop the list, earning 140,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Feb. 23, according to Nielsen Music.

…more than half of its units were powered by streaming activity: 73,000 units (equaling 109 million streams of the album’s songs during the tracking frame). The rest of its units were comprised of traditional album sales (60,000) and track equivalent album units (7,000).

From the way things are shaping up, the hitmaking rapper is set to unseat himself on next week’s Billboard 200 with his follow-up release, ‘HNDRXX.’  Until we find out for sure, tuck in below to see who joins him in this week’s refreshed “Chart Check:  Billboard 200.”

Did You Miss It? Future Takes ‘Incredible’ Performance To ‘Ellen’

With two surprise albums released a week apart, you’d think Future be beating the promo trail non-stop in support of the respective projects.

But, with his dedicated “Future Hive” hoisting the first release, ‘Future,’ to the top of the Billboard 200 (and its follow-up, ‘HNDRXX’ looking to do the same), it’s safe to say promotion doesn’t exactly have to be at the top of his ‘to do list.’

With hopes of keeping them buoyed in Billboard’s upper rankings, however, the rapper/producer took to ‘Ellen’ recently to show off the album track ‘Incredible’ with a live band.

Curious to see how he fared?  See it below if you missed any of the action:

New Video: Ariana Grande & Future – ‘Everyday’

As her Nicki Minaj-enlisted tune, ‘Side To Side,’ refuses to step outside of the Billboard Hot 100’s top 30, Ariana Grande‘s called on Future to assist with helping her return to the chart’s perch with ‘Everyday.’

Much like ‘Side,’ Everyday – a highly sexualized tune – sees Grande coo some seriously R-rated lyrics over a bass driven beat (see:  mention of orgasms and more).

The fourth official release from her latest album, ‘Dangerous Woman,’ tuck in below to weigh in on the Chris Marrs Piliero visual:

Stream: Future’s ‘HNDRXX’ Album [Featuring Rihanna, The Weeknd, & More]

Future has officially unleashed ‘HNDRXX’ – his second album in a week and his sixth overall.

Billed as being more rhythmic/radio leaning than last Friday’s self-titled set, the LP features guest appearances from The Weeknd and Rihanna.  The latter teams up with the rapper for the song ‘Selfish.’

It’s neither of the hitmaker’s first outing with Future, however, as Rih called upon his rap stylings for 2012’s ‘Loveeeeeee Song’ [‘Unapologetic’] album and  the Weeknd can be found on the rapper’s hit ‘Low Life.’

With Ms. Fenty and Mr. Tesfaye returning the favors again, how do their latest swings of the bat sound?
