Rapper Future earns 6th No.1 on Billboard


Rapper Future’s latest project The WIZRD has earned the platinum-selling artist his sixth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 for the week ending January 24.

A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie’s Hoodie SZN project takes a 13 percent dip to land in the Top 3, while Meek Mill’s Championships album also takes a 13 percent hit to wind up in the Top 5.

Elsewhere on the chart, XXXTENTACION Presents: Members Only Vol. 4 compilation makes its debut at No. 23 and the Aesop Rock-helmed duo Malibu Ken enters the chart at No. 176 with its self-titled effort.

Future’s music career continues to blossom with his sixth No. 1 album in three years and five months, the quickest accumulation since Elton John in the ’70s.

With 125,948 total album equivalent units, 15,300 pure album sales and a streaming count of 143,619,329, The WIZRD easily nabbed the Billboard 200 crown.
