Future's new album, Beastmode 2, is now the highest-charting streaming-only album, Billboard reports, debuting at No. 3 on Billboard's Hot 200. With this album, Future has dethroned Chance the Rapper, whose Coloring Book became the first streaming-exclusive album to chart on the Billboard 200, peaking at No. 8. Coloring Book also went on to earn Chance the Rapper the first Grammy awarded for a streaming-only album.

Beastmode 2 charted with 57,000 equivalent album units earned through 73.5 million on-demand audio streams. The Billboard 200 chart began taking streaming data into account in 2014 and last month, Billboard began weighting streams from subscription services more heavily than those from free and ad-supported services for its Hot 100 songs and Hot 200 albums charts.

Beastmode 2 is Future's ninth album to reach the Billboard 200 top 10.
