For Fans Of: Lil Wayne, J. Cole, Gucci Mane, Wale, Juicy J, 2 Chainz
It’s official: Drake and Future‘s surprise mixtape What a Time to Be Alive is now the No. 1 album in America.
A week after its release, the collaborative set has debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 chart thanks to 375,000 equivalent album units.
That tally also makes it the third-highest debut of the year, behind only of The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind the Madness (412,000) and Drake himself, who surprise-released his solo mixtape If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late (535,000) earlier this year.
Alive is now Drake’s fifth No. 1 to date, while it marks Future’s second No. 1 in as many months, after Dirty Sprite 2 debuted at the top of the charts in July.
