Less than a week after releasing his self-titled album, Future is reportedly planning to unveil another project this Friday (Feb. 24).
According to HITS Daily Double, the project is set to be “more rhythmic-leaning and radio-friendly” than the self-titled album, which featured tracks like “Draco,” “Good Dope,” and “Super Trapper.” It’s reportedly an attempt to obtain back-to-back No. 1s on the Billboard 200.
Future’s self-titled album is certainly on track to deliver the first of those No. 1s. Projections show that it’s on pace to move 145-155,000 units, likely enough for the top slot. As a point of comparison, Big Sean’s I Decided. recently topped the Billboard 200 with 151,000 equivalent album units.
In 2015, Future earned his first No. 1 with DS2 and months later topped the chart again with What a Time To Be Alive, his joint mixtape with Drake. Last year, his EVOL LP also reached No. 1, marking three chart-toppers in less than seven months.
Last week, Future spoke with Beats 1 about the supreme focus he’s had while working on new music as of late. “All my energy, I want to put it in my music,” he explained. “I want you to hear this and say, ‘He gave us all of him.’ And you didn’t get it from a tweet. If there was a tweet I felt like saying during that time, you’re gonna be able to hear it in my music. If there was a response that you thought I should have responded to, you’re going to be able to hear it in my music.”
If Hendrix does drop a new album this week, it will be his sixth overall. It will also give him plenty of material to perform on his “Nobody Safe Tour,” which kicks off May 4 in Memphis with guests Migos, Tory Lanez, and Kodak Black.
Future, who is set to perform on “The Tonight Show” this evening, has yet to confirm the new project.
