Future just dropped a new self-titled album last Friday (Feb. 17) that’s receiving plenty of praise, social media love and will be a chart topper this week. Now word is that Future Hendrix is dropping another new album this Friday, Feb. 24. 

Reports Hits Daily Double:

On the heels of his big self-titled release—headed for chart dominance this week—A1/Freebandz/Epic’s Future will be dropping another album on Friday, as artist and label vie for back-to-back #1s. Word has it the second set is more Rhythmic-leaning and radio-friendly.

The first of Future’s two new sets is on track to bow with 145-155k on our SPS chart, with 125-150 million streams. His DS2 bowed at #1 in 2015 with 153k SPS; he and Drake released a joint mixtape a few months later, and it too had a #1 debut, with 379k SPS.

Future hinted at releasing music at the rate his fans demanded it in his Beats 1 interview with Zane Lowe.

Hip-Hop Wired reached out to Epic Records for comment but have yet to hear back.
