‘Put me anywhere on this God green earth, I’ll triple my sales’
The #FutureHive has spoken.
After a lackluster showing on Soundscan with the release of last year’s Honest, Future‘s sophomore album, the Atlanta native has stormed back in 2015, and will debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 for the first time in his career when the official charts are released this weekend. DS2 is estimated to pull in a sales-plus-streaming figure of approximately 140,000 units.
After Honest sold a mediocre 53,000 copies in its first week on the shelves last April, Future went on a historically-good mixtape spree, releasing Monster in October of last year, Beast Mode this January, and 56 Nights in March, ultimately leading to a buzz so large ahead of Dirty Sprite 2, that his fan base began referring to themselves as the Future Hive, playing off of Beyonce‘s infamously voracious fans.
Future’s 18-track long-player sported just one feature (Drake),and was produced almost entirely by Metro Boomin.
