Future Makes History With “Beastmode 2”
Artists are continuing to show the powers of streaming whether it be from loading albums with 20 songs, adding singles that did well prior to the album release, or releasing mixtapes through platforms like Apple Music, Spotify, and TIDAL. This week Future released the sequel to his 2015 mixtape Beastmode, a mixtape that helped Future go on a 3-year hot streak we never saw coming. The album debuted on the Billboard 200 at No.3 moving 57,000 units beating the previous album, “Coloring Book” by Chance the Rapper. This may seem low compared to previous outings like DS2, Future, and Hndrxx, but it’s impressive considering that the mixtape was not available for purchase.
This isn’t the first time Future has done big things on the Billboard charts. Back in 2017, he was the first artist to release two consecutive number one albums in back to back weeks. What else does, Future have up his sleeve for 2018? Future will be co-headlining the Nicki Hndrxx Tour with Nicki Minaj.
