Future Drops New Video With Ariana Grande; Tops Charts For Fourth Consecutive Time
Mon, 27 Feb 2017 10:34:53
Future's self-titled album is number one on the Billboard charts. It's his fifth straight number one record, and if his just released HNDRXX tops next week's chart, he'll be the first artist ever debut atop the Billboard 200 in consecutive weeks with different LPs.
Future follows in the footsteps of previous number ones Evol, What a Time to Be Alive and DS2. And industry forecasters are already predicting that HNDRXX will be topping next week's chart, so some might think it's time for a little celebration, and some well-deserved R & R — but then you wouldn't be Future.
Yesterday, Ariana Grande dropped a music video featuring none other than the Astronaut Kid. The video doesn't pair the two on screen, but each of them are witness to people getting seriously into 'it'. "Everyday", from Grande's Dangerous Woman, has everybody getting some, and celebrates love of all stripes: young, old, black, white, gay, straight.
So that's enough right? Future can just go chill and count his skrill somewhere. But nope, it seems like Future plans to do anything but that. The Ellen DeGeneres Show revealed that Future will be appearing on the show on Thursday, March 2nd), and the episode description explains, "He'll be performing a song from his upcoming CD, "HNDRXX." He has the #1 album in the country this week with "Future," and is attempting to have three #1 albums in a row in three weeks — which will make him the first in history to do that! He's bringing it all to Ellen!
Future really might just be the hardest working man in the rap game.
