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

Published: Thursday 9th Mar 2017 by Rashad

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”:

    HNDRXX is actually really good. TGJ, post about Nicki calmly dragging Remy on No Frauds

    If Beyonce did low ass numbers like that people would call her a flop ass B*tch but it’s ok for people like him to do it. Smh Ed Sheeran would die if his numbers looked like

      Beyonce would never do low ass number like this. She is a legend and her albums always are always a success.

    The only rapper I ever liked with weave was Busta Rhymes. Future’s music sucks and the proof is that there is no song of his I can remember a year after it comes out.

    Rihanna though. Still in the Top 20 over a year later. That reign tho….

    Rihanna had got to be the most ‘assisted’ singer in history.the CD is selling 2,000 or so copies but still I the top 20 due to this dubious streaming….from a already streamed song ‘love on the brain’it doesn’t make sense to me at all.Isn’t that double counting?Let the album chart stand on sales alone.The figures are bad because the music is trash and wack.Case in point Drake’s views has 4.4million points in streaming lol..but guess how much has been sold? 1.6millio copies in real sales. Totally ridiculous.

  9. JOHNVIDAL March 10, 2017

    The Rihanna case is hilarious and ridiculous. We officially have the artist who ended being benefited most by the new basic rules 🙂
