Congratulations to rappers Future and Drake for their mix tape
What a Time to Be Alive”  debuting at number one on Billboard’s top 200. Both Future (Dirty Sprite 2) and Drake (If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late) had their individual albums reach number one Billboard this year before they decide to join forces. You can stream the album below.

Drake and Future’s mixtape What a Time to Be Alive has met expectations of white-hot sales with a No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 chart.

The surprise project, which was announced a day before its release, moved 375,000 equivalent album units in its first week. Of that total, 334,000 were pure album sales, reports Billboard. While strong, the numbers are less than the 500,000 industry experts had initially predicted.

This marks a return to the winner’s circle for both rappers this year. Drake’s mix tape If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late reached No. 1, as did Future’s DS2 LP. The last time a rapper scored two No. 1’s in a year was Jay Z back in 2004.

Drake and Future also earn the second-largest sales week of 2015 following Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late (495,000), and the third-largest week for an album this year after The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind the Madness (412,000) and IYRTITL (535,000).

Mac Miller, meanwhile, opens at No. 4 with his Warner Bros. Records debut GO:OD AM, which sold 87,000 copies (No. 4), two spots behind Lana Del Rey’s Honeymoon (116,000).
