Future just celebrated his seventh No. 1 album with the release of High Off Life. With 13 singles from the album debuting on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, he can now celebrate passing Nicki Minaj and Elvis Presley up to become the fourth artist with the most Hot 100 entries ever.
The “Life Is Good” rapper took to Twitter to celebrate the news. “7 number 1 albums and they mentioning me with ELVIS PRESLEY.” he tweeted. “Grateful and beyond THANKFUL.”
Only three acts have more Hot 100 entries than Future. Drake tops the list with 222 entries, followed by the “Glee” cast with 207 entries and Lil Wayne with 163 entries. He also becomes the ninth artist to snag at least 100 career Hot 100 entries. This year alone, Future has charted 20 singles on the Hot 100.
Last month, the Purple Reign MC spoke to XXL about how High Off Life defined his creativity.
“This album right here defines me at a creative level. Going to the next level where you just going to the next level and always going outside the box, but still remaining true to my core fans and my core audience. It’s me trying new things.”
“I want to remain true to self, but also true to my fans and just giving them a good project, a great project to be able to listen to, but also for different artists to be able to feed off of, create off of, come up with different ideas and just being at the forefront of just making a solid album, a solid, complete album,” he added. “It’s just very important to me.”
Future is also working on an upcoming book and Netflix movie. “Right now, I got my book I’m working on,” he told Zane Lowe. “My movie I’m working on. They’re going to able to find it on Netflix.”
Congrats to Future on his huge accomplishment.
