Future is dominating the music scene with his last two albums, FUTURE and HNDRXX. Both albums have debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 chart. This makes Future the first artist in the six-decade history of the Billboard 200 chart to have two new chart-topping albums back to back.
According to a report from Billboard, Future is the first solo artist to replace himself on the chart since 1968. There have been only eight other artists since 1963 to hold the number one and two spots at the same time on the chart.
