It was rumored that Future will be releasing another album following the release of his self-titled album Future. The Atlanta rapper confirmed that he’s releasing the album he “always wanted to make” titled HNDRXX Friday, February 24th in an Instagram post
This new album was rumored to be “more Rhythmic-leaning and radio-friendly,” according to its sources. It would be his third album in a little over a year, following last week’s self-titled effort and EVOL from last February.
Though another new album would be a surprise, but Future did mention during an interview with Zane Lowe that he had enough material for another album. Future Hendrix’s next release could potentially give him back to back No. 1 albums; his self-titled project is projected to land at No. 1 and sell 145-155,000 equivalent album units, according to Hits Daily Double.
While no track titles had been revealed at the time, both Rihanna and The Weeknd are tagged on Future’s Instagram announcement. “The album I always wanted to make, timing is everything,” wrote Future.
The decision to release two full-length albums in two weeks, each appealing to a different demographic, is certainly not unprecedented—in September 2005, Nelly released Sweat and Suit on the same day—but it’s a bold move nonetheless.
Future’s HNDRXX Tracklist
1. “My Collection”
3. “Lookin Exotic”
5. “Use Me”
8. “Fresh Air”
9. “Neva Missa Lost”
10. “Keep Quiet”
12. “I Thank U”
13. “New Illuminati”
14. “Turn on Me”
15. “Selfish” Feat. Rihanna
The album is being released, under some controversy, through Epic, Freebandz, and A1. The latter imprint belongs to Rocko, who is currently involved in an ongoing feud with Future. Rocko sued Hendrix for $10 million last year, claiming he was cut out of a side deal with Epic. There are reports that both albums are part of a settlement between the parties. During a back-and-forth exchange on Instagram this week, Future called Rocko a “con man,” continuing the bad blood.
