Drake And Future’s ‘What A Time To Be Alive’ Debuts At No.1 On Billboard 200

After releasing their joint mixtape ‘What A Time To Be Alive’ last Sunday, Drake and Future both score another No. 1 album as it debuts atop the Billboard 200.

Drake and Future managed to push 375,000 units first week with 334,000 of those being strictly sales. ‘What A Time To Be Alive’ is the second largest sales week for an album in 2015 with Drake’s ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’ being the largest.

According to Billboard:

” The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Oct. 10-dated chart (where Drake and Future are No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, Sept. 29.

What a Time to Be Alive was released Sunday, Sept. 20 (through A-1/Freebandz/Young Money/Cash Money/Epic/Republic Records), and was initially exclusively available through Apple Music and the iTunes Store. The set was only announced one day earlier, and its release came on an off-cycle Sunday (as most albums are now released on a Friday each week, the first day of the Billboard 200’s tracking week).”

Earlier this year Drake released ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’ which debuted at No.1. Future released ‘DS2′ in July which also debuted at No.1. Drake and Future are the first hip-hop acts since 2004 to score two No. 1 albums in a calendar year. CONGRATS!
