Future Gets #1 On Billboard 200, Replacing Himself

March 7, 2017 | Posted by Joseph Lee

Billboard reports that Future has made history on the Billboard 200, not only getting back-to-back debuts at #1, but actually replacing himself to do it. His new album HNDRXX debuted in the top spot, replacing his other album Future. He’s the first act ever to get back-to-back #1 debuts in successive weeks. He’s also the first artist to replace himself at #1 since 1968 and the first solo act to do it. Simon & Garfunkel did it two times with Bookends and The Graduate soundtrack, although neither debuted at #1. Since 1963, Future is the sixth act to replace himself after Simon & Garfunkel, The Monkees, Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass, The Beatles and Peter, Paul & Mary. Finally, he’s the first artist in a year to have albums at #1 and #2, after Prince did it last year with The Very Best of Prince (#1) and Purple Rain (#2). < HNDRXX moved 121,000 units, with 48,000 in traditional album sales. It’s also Future’s fifth #1 album, a group that includes Evol (2016), What a Time to Be Alive (w/ Drake, 2015) and DS2 (2015).
