Future earns the sixth No. 1 album of his career with 'WIZRD'
The Atlanta heavyweight’s latest debuts at the top of the Billboard 200.
Future has a new career milestone to celebrate, one that puts him in the same conversation as Elton John.
As reported by Billboard, the Atlanta rapper has earned his sixth No. 1 album with the release of his latest project, WIZRD. Per Nielsen Music, Future’s WIZRD earned 126,000 equivalent album units. Of that sum, 15,000 were in traditional sales.
The project, which has officially debuted at the top slot on the Billboard 200 chart, marks his sixth No. 1 in just three-and-a-half years. This accomplishment, given the time span, marks the quickest accumulation of having six chart-topping albums since Elton John in the ’70s.
Previously, Future dropped his first No. 1, DS2 on Aug. 8, 2015. He then released What a Time to Be Alive (with Drake; Oct. 10, 2015), Evol (Feb. 27, 2016), a self-titled album (March 11, 2017), HNDRXX (March 18, 2017), with each, like WIZRD, debuting at the top of the Billboard 200 chart.
Additionally, the 35-year-old garnered his largest streaming week with WIZRD, garnering 143.6 million on-demand audio streams. He previously had his largest debut week with his collaborative WRLD on Drugs project with Juice Wrld, which earned 123.4 million streams.
In addition to having the most popular album in the country, the rapper also recently shared where some of his earnings are going. In a new interview with Complex, he revealed he drops $300,000 on new clothes every month.
“When I get started, I don’t stop,” he shared during an appearance on the outlet’s “Sneaker Shopping” video franchise. “I shop every day. I probably spend two to three hundred thousand dollars on clothes a month.”
With some self-awareness, he added: “It’s crazy, I gotta stop.”
Congrats to Future on his latest No. 1! Take a look at his new interview in the clip below.
