Projections all pointed to a second number 1 album debut for Future with his self-titled album FUTURE and his follow-up HNDRXX. Future now makes history as the first artist with back-to-back number 1 debuts. HNDRXX features production from Valholla’s own, The Track Burnaz.
“Future is the first act in the nearly 61-year history of the chart to achieve back-to-back No. 1 debuts in successive weeks. The rapper is also the first artist to succeed himself at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 at all (counting not only debuts) since 1968. He’s additionally the first soloist ever to claim the honor.” – Keith Caulfield, Billboard
“Use Me” by Future produced by The Track Burnaz, Detail and Sidney Swift
HNDRXX sold 121,000 equivalent album units in the week ending March 2, according to Nielsen Music. 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.
Congrats to Future and everyone involved in this history-making set of albums.
