Future First Artist in History to Have Back-to-Back Number One Albums

Future is the first artist in history to have two different number one albums two weeks in a row:

Future is the first act in the nearly 61-year history of the chart to achieve back-to-back No. 1 debuts in successive weeks. The rapper is also the first artist to succeed himself at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 at all (counting not only debuts) since 1968. He’s additionally the first soloist ever to claim the honor.
