The Numbers Are In…: Future Lands First #1 On Billboard 200 With ‘DS2’

futurefb thatgrapejuice

It looks like third time’s the charm for Atlantan rapper Future.

For, after seeing his first two studio efforts bow in the Billboard 200’s top 10 upon their respective debuts, his third album – ‘DS2’ (in stores now) – has taken the tally’s perch.

Despite forecasts indicating the ‘Move That Dope’ rapper’s project would move less than 100k units its first week, the set has proven naysayers wrong by almost doubling its initial prediction.

See the official numbers below:

First Week Sales:  147,000

121,000 of those units were pure albums sold while the rest were accounted for by streaming points. The numbers not only helped Future notch his first #1, but they come as a first week career high for the rapper whose previous efforts – ‘Honest’ and ‘Pluto’ – sold 53,000 and 41,000 respectively.

Congratz are in order!

  2. Weezy Tha G.O.A.T July 26, 2015

    He did in the first week, what Ciara still hasn’t done in the third month. But I’m sleep though????

    • bb July 28, 2015

      I like Ciara when she does RNB/pop contemp songs like DLWML. she generally picks poor radio singles tho.
      I BET was too boring.
      She needs to let her label pick her singles going forward …. if she still has a label next album.

    Meanwhile the squad is celebrating YouTube views.

  8. LB July 26, 2015

    I didn’t even know he had an album out

  9. BeyKnowlesBest July 26, 2015

    Damn Ciara somewhere clinching her teeth, she ain’t been in the #1 spot in so long she forgot what it look like ..but I still love her

  10. another bty day something ain’t wrong July 26, 2015

    Good for him

  11. BeyRihLiyah July 26, 2015

    Why is he relevant again?

    • Bey Is Grown July 27, 2015

      Exactly and the Ciara haters don`t even like him but just because he sold more they are gonna endorse him!

  12. Aguilera July 26, 2015

    Damn, has Jackie even sold 100K yet? #UberFLOP

  13. Rosie July 26, 2015

    Screaming at him selling more first week than Jackii has sold since when, May?

    Also apparently Bird Bïtch is Slayoncé/that Slay_Hive dupe?

    • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig July 26, 2015

      David and Sam exposed all the trolls. Stalkeryonce 100% was trolling as @Slay_hive, but not the real one, and she was also pretending to be @KeriQween. But the real Birdb*tch is the same person as Mark, which is why they haven’t been commenting on the same posts lately because they are afraid they will be exposed too.

  14. @JanetCIARA_ July 26, 2015

    Garbage! This world is sick and heinous for supporting an album titled “Dirty Sprite 2”
    Drugs, violence and what these ‘artists’ be promoting now days disgust me…. I still don’t understand how Fetty Waps “Trap Queen” is being promoted everywhere as if nothing’s wrong with the message in the lyrics.

    The charts difference from 10 years ago is mind boggling. I guess children will continue to glamorize it.
    Meanwhile can’t wait to see how much he will be placing in his children’s college fund this month.

  15. K.Dot July 27, 2015

    Exactly but we don’t give a f*** bout that:>…congrats to fewtch doe

  16. Xtina = The voice of this generation July 27, 2015

    I like him.

  17. cocobutta July 27, 2015

    Wow that’s really good but his voice annoys my soul. But hey not spent my coins so cant complain.

    Kudos when its due

  18. Bey Is Grown July 27, 2015

    Leave Ciara out of this, se has two platinum single, a grammy and had a number one songand Fture has none f those. Jackie is a solid album, very enjoyable sohe useless Ciara shade is useless, you keep reffering to her as aflop but she is a endorsing a few fashion houses and @SlayHie I like you, we stan for the queen but leave Cici alone and hi Rosie I like you a lot also but can you please eas on the Cici shade._

  19. Bey Is Grown July 27, 2015

    OMG! The typos

  20. Legend B July 27, 2015

    Why are people surprise? Popular rappers always move units. The ones that tend to churn out hits constantly and have a big street following, will do big numbers. Congrats Anyway…

  21. Bitchpleaseeezzzzzz July 27, 2015

    So who upgraded who ????

    • Legend B July 27, 2015

      Ciara upgraded him.

  22. Really July 27, 2015

    Good for him, but he solll doesn’t have any certifications. Those sales still won’t get him a gold or platinum single or album. But didn’t “I bet” go gold?? Oh ok? Meek mill just got out jail, has one single and sold more

  23. Who cares July 27, 2015

    He might have sold 147k first week, however that doesn’t mean he will have a Gold or Platinum album. His first two albums have no certifications. He is a weak rapper. He can’t even make a song with out autotune or even keep Ciara’s name out of his mouth. He is using Ciara’s name to push this weak album. He sucks as a rapper. I don’t see how people listen to his music, when you can’t even hear what he says in songs. His words are muffled on every song he does. People who bought this album have no taste in music.
