You may not think of him as the future or even the best rapper alive, but Future sure knows how to create music that appeals to a large spectrum of the music-loving public. His song “Wait For U” affirms that yet, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
It isn’t exactly a first for the songster. But it means a lot. For Future, it’s the second time popping at No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart. For Tems, the Nigerian singer who worked with him on the number, it’s a first.
For Drake, the other collaborator on “Wait For U,” it’s the 10th time popping at number 1 on that chart. Yeah, the certified lover boy of Canadian music has already made nine appearances at number 1 previously. Now he has a rounded figure.
“Wait For U” is part of Future’s latest album, “I Never Liked You,” which itself recorded a milestone, debuting at No. 1 on Billboard 200 albums chart. Future now has his 8th No. 1 album on Billboard 200 albums chart with that milestone.
For a musician that GQ calls the best rapper alive, Future’s latest achievements further affirm his creative powers. So congratulations are in order for Future and his many stans out there. No qualms.
