Future's "Beast Mode 2" Breaks Billboard Record
Article By: Ashia Skye
Friday, July 6th, rapper Future delivered his 21’st mixtape Beast Mode 2. The highly anticipated sequel to 2015’s Beast Mode, was announced by Future via twitter, and made available for streaming that same day. Since the release of the project, Beast Mode 2 has managed to clench the number 3 spot on the Billboard 200, with 73.5 million audio streams (the equivalent of 57,000 album sales), thus making it the highest charting streaming-only release in history.
Due to the fact that the mixtape was not released as a physical copy or sold in stores, makes breaking this record a pretty impressive feat. In addition to being the highest charting streaming-only release, Beast Mode 2 is also Future’s 9th Billboard top 10 charting album. And since Future is set to take off on the NickiHndrxx Tour with Nicki Minaj in September, he will have plenty of new material to perform , and plenty of new accolades to celebrate while out on tour.
