Announced just a week before its release, the set gives the rapper his best sales week ever and continues the trend of chart-toppers with little advance notice.
Surprise -- kind of! The parade of semi-unexpected albums debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 continues, as Future bows atop the list with his first chart-topper, DS2.
The project, released July 17 but only announced July 10, launches with 151,000 equivalent-album units earned in the week ending July 23, according to Nielsen Music. It's a notable feat for his third studio effort, issued through A-1/Freebandz/Epic Records.
