*Future finds himself in unfamiliar territory – at No. 1 on the U.S. album chart with his latest effort “DS2.”
The rapper’s third studio album sold 151,000 units in the week ending July 23, according to data from Nielsen music.
Tame Impala also released a new album in the time frame, doing about one third of Future’s numbers for a fourth-place debut. “Currents,” the alt-rock band’s third studio effort, moved just shy of 50,000 units. Success was driven by frequent alternative radio station attention to lead single “Elephant.” This marks the band’s first appearance in the top 10.
Tyrese’s “Black Rose” drops to third place. The R&B set from the actor-musician moved 50,000 units, down 35% from its No. 1 debut.
Rapper Meek Mill scored a seventh-place finish for “Dreams Worth More Than Money,” which had debuted at No. 1 two weeks prior. Mill’s latest moved 39,000 units, down 26% from the week before.
