While the predications are in for ‘HNDRXX’, the scorecards have been tallied up for ‘FUTURE’, which secured him his 4th No.1 US Billboard chart position. With ‘HNDRXX’ also expected to hit the no.1 spot next week and possibly a 3rd rumoured album on the way, Future is on a winning streak with two back to back no.1 albums entering the chart week on week. Here are the final numbers for ‘FUTURE’;
Streaming Activity: 73,000 (109 million song streams)
Traditional Sales: 60,000
Track equivalent album units: 7,000
Now when it comes to Future there’s no point underestimating the rumours, the idea that Future could be releasing a 3rd album on Epic records is as viable as they come. Considering the two back to back releases of FUTURE and HNDRXX, came off the back of a $10 million lawsuit for a breach of contract to Rocko’s A1 label, it’s been assumed these 2 albums were to release Future from a six album deal to A1. If this is the case, is the 3rd album an attempt to recover some of the losses? All will be revealed this week no doubt, but if a 3rd album is indeed on the way, is it too soon to assume Future has a shot at the no.1 spot, remember Friday will also see the release of Ed Sheeran’s album, ‘Divide’.
Ahead of Future’s appearance on the Ellen show, the internet caught wind of a pre-show announcement that states “He has the #1 album in the country this week with ‘Future,’ and is attempting to have three #1 albums in a row in three weeks – which will make him the first in history to do that,” on the official “Ellen DeGeneres Show” website.
Yep Future wasn’t bluffing, another new album is arriving this Friday, titled ‘HNDRXX’ produced by DJ Esco and likely to top the charts yet again. Could this be the album that features that Chance the Rapper collab? All will be revealed no doubt.

Tune in here.
With all due respect, Im asking you to be loving, patient, and kind enough to understand my creativity is to heal wounds, not make new ones. However, the greater the risk, the greater the reward. Especially when you have great intentions for every individual that has played a major role in your life experiences. Now bare with me through my trials and tribulations, my wrong's and my rights. Find time to forgive me for any hurt or heartbreak I may have caused loving selfishly! I'm not perfect, no man walking this earth is. I'm at a place in life where I wanna make my weaknesses my strengths to become a better person than I was yesterday. -Future
Nothing is Future proof and another Future album is arriving this Friday 17th February with 17 tracks available to Pre-Order now on iTunes.
With his first official release since ‘EVOL’, the album was simply tweeted out on Future’s account with a few choice words –“I was preparing the feast. U walked away from the table too soon.”
Also announcing a major US tour, Future will be heading on the road for the Nobody Safe Tour in May taking out Migos, Tory Lanez, and Kodak Black with him alongside Young Thug and A$AP Ferg on selected dates.
Little else is known about the forthcoming album yet, but you can pretty much expect another No.1 debut on the US album charts.
