Future's 'Honest' takes top spot on R&B/Hip-Hop Albums

By Chelsea Lewis ,

Rapper Future has had an impressive first week with sales for his latest album Honest, which has sold 53,000 units since it was released on April 22. The album also debuted on the top spot on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop charts.

Billboard reported that the race for the top spot was very close between Iggy Azalea's The New Classic which sold just 1,000 units less than Honest. The New Classic in total sold 52,000 units.

The release dates for both of these albums were announced back in 2013 and fans have been anticipating both records. Honest was supposed to be released back in Nov. 26 under a different title Future Hendrix but was pushed back until April 2014.

Honest features collaborations with Pharrell Williams and Lil' Wayne.

As previously reported, the Frozen soundtrack was the No. 1 album overall this week with 115,000 copies sold, far ahead of Honest, which came in at No. 2. Azalea's new album was No. 3 overall.
