With little warning, rappers Future and Lil Uzi Vert‘s long-teased collaborative effort – ‘Pluto x Baby Pluto’ – launched to major streaming platforms on November 13.
Executive produced by DJ Esco, the project’s original carnation boasted 16 never-before-heard duets from the chart-toppers and was released just days ahead of an expanded deluxe edition that featured 8 more songs – including the previously released ‘Over Your Head’ and ‘Patek.’
Though initially locked in a tight battle with AC/DC for the refreshed Billboard 200 championship (as we reported here), the additional streams and sales provided by the rappers’ re-release did nothing to edge out the legendary rockers by the tracking week’s end.
