Billboard Explains: Future’s Success on the Charts

Narrator:
Can Future snag another No. 1 album? In anticipation of Future and Metro Boomin’s second collaboration project We Still Don’t Trust You, let’s look back at Future’s Billboard chart accomplishments. This is Billboard Explains: Future’s Success on the Charts.

Future’s first chart appearance came thanks to his feature role on YC’s “Racks” in 2011, which reached No. 42 on the Hot 100 and No. 4 on the Hot Rap Songs chart.

Since then, Future has been racking up the Hot 100 hits. He currently has 185, the fourth most of any artists, behind Drake, Taylor Swift and Lil Wayne. The rapper has 15 top 10s, including smashes like “Mask Off” and “Life Is Good.” The Billboard chart-topper has three Hot 100 No. 1s: his feature on Drake’s “Way 2 Sexy”; “Wait for U” with Drake and Tems; and “Like That,” his collab with Metro Boomin and Kendrick Lamar.

Over on the Billboard 200, Future has nine No. 1 albums including DS2 in 2015, I Never Liked You in 2022 and most recently, We Don’t Trust You with Metro Boomin, earlier this month.

Future made history on the Billboard 200 in 2017 when his Future and Hndrxx albums were No. 1 in back-to-back weeks, making him the first solo artist to knock himself out of the No. 1 spot.

Will his upcoming project with Metro Boomin be his 10th No. 1 album? Only time will tell.
