A little more than a year after Future became the first artist to achieve back-to-back No. 1 debuts on the Billboard 200 albums chart, he now earns the highest-charting streaming-exclusive album on the tally.
His new effort, Beastmode 2 -- which is only available on streaming services -- starts at No. 3 on the July 21-dated chart. The set was released on July 6 via Freebandz/Epic Records.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new July 21-dated chart will be posted in full on Billboard's websites on Tuesday, July 17.
