See how many units Future & Young Thug's "Super Slimey" project moved in its first week out.
Well it looks like the numbers are in. According to Billboard & Hits Double Daily, Future & Young Thug’s joint album, Super Slimey, sold 75,000 (75,269 to be exact) units in its first week, with 15,000 of them coming from traditional sales.
The 75,000 units sold was enough to land the ATL duo the #2 spot in the Billboard 200 last week, following Irish singer/songwriter Niall Horan’s debut album Flicker, which sold 152,000 units. Interesting enough though, Super Slimey serves as the highest-charting collaborative album in more than two years. The last to go that high was another pairing with Future, What A Time to Be Alive, featuring Drizzy Drake back in 2015.
Super Slimey, which features a lone appearances from Migos' rapper Offset, marks as Future’s eighth top 10 album in his career, and his third top 10 album in 2017 alone, following his back-to-back No. 1’s with his self-titled album and HNDRXX. For Young Thug, Super Slimey charts higher than his previous effort Easy Breezy Beautiful Thugger Girls, which only sold 37K units in its opening week.
These first numbers come in just days after fellow ATL producer Southside hinted that more “very epic” music from Future & Thug was in the vault and could possibly on the way. "It might not even be a Super Slimey 2," he said. "It might be What a Slime to Be Alive up next. You never know, we are with the element of surprise.” Hopefully he’s not trolling us and we get to hear more from these two ATL rappers in the future, but guess time will only tell for now. In the meantime, look out for another collab project from a pair of ATL rappers in 21 Savage & Offset, who's Without Warning album with Metro Boomin drops at midnight.
