Future is the fifth artist in history to debut at #1 on both the Billboard Hot 100 and the Billboard 200, with I NEVER LIKED YOU topping the 200 and “WAIT FOR U” topping the Hot 100. He landed a #1 US and Global A on Spotify’s Top Songs Debut USA Chart, as well as a #1 US and Global A.
Previously, Future’s “Wait For U” featuring Drake and Tems made a debut at the top of the Billboard Hot 100. The single is Future’s second No. 1, Drake’s No. 10, and the first for Tems.
“Wait For U” was the 1,137th No. 1 single in Hot 100 and had 40.2 million streams. In addition, the single had 7.9 million radio airplay audience impressions and 6,400 downloads. “Wait for U” has now gone Platinum.
With the top spot, Drake is the 10th act in the Hot 100 history to hit No. 1. For solo male acts, Billboard notes Drake joins Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder.
Already one of the hottest songs of the year, Future’s “Wait For U” featuring Drake and Tems receives a video in the form of a story of a Toxic King. The video from the I NEVER LIKED YOU album shows Future as a medieval king headed to war. Additional scenes show Future on the battlefield and toasting with his kingdom, but keeping his leading lady in mind.
To make it even better, Drake pulls up like a knight, riding a horse, and fights off two burly guys holding a woman hostage. Just when it looks like Drake would be overpowered, the woman helps him.
