Future and Juice WRLD ring in a new No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart as their collaborative set, Future & Juice WRLD Present…WRLD on Drugs, debuts in the top slot. The album earned 98,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Oct. 25, according to Nielsen Music.

The joint LP gives Juice WRLD his first No. 1 on the list. His debut studio album, Goodbye & Good Riddance, peaked at No. 3 in August and ranks at No. 12 on the current ranking. Riddance contains the Chicago native’s breakout hits “All Girls Are The Same” and “Lucid Dreams,” the latter of which spent two weeks at No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

Future, meanwhile, collects his eighth No. 1 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, tying him with Drake for the most chart leaders in the 2010s decade.

Here’s a recap of Future’s eight chart champs, all of which have logged one week atop the ranking:
