The future is bright for Future who’s netted another chart-topping album, replacing none other than himself.

HNDRXX debuted at the top of the Billboard 200, replacing his self-titled album which had previously help the top spot. This is the first time in the six-decade history of the chart to have one artist with top albums in consecutive weeks.

This feat marks the first time any solo artist has ever replaced themselves atop the Billboard 200, with just eight other groups having held the number one and two spot since 1963.

Both albums came on short notice from the artist, including a surprise announcement just days prior to the release of HNDRXX, dropping just seven days after his self-titled album.

As detailed by the Rolling Stone, HNDRXX marks Future’s fifth consecutive chart-topping album–DS2, EVOL, What A Time To Be Alive collaboration with Drake, and Future.

At this point, I’d say he’s “Used to This.”
