Future is no stranger to the Billboard 200.
After scoring his first number one album when DS2 was released in 2015, the Atlanta rapper has went on a run that can only be matched by Elton John. You see, in just the three years that’s followed, Future has earned five more No. 1’s with What A Time to Be Alive in 2015, Evol in 2016, FUTURE and HNDRXX in 2017, and now, The WIZRD—which has taken the top spot with 126,000 equivalent album units (15k traditional) moved in its first week.
