It’s the end of an era as Future’s 166-week continuous run on the Billboard Hot 100 chart has come to a conclusion.
The three-year reign—or, three years, one month, and 25 days, to be exact—first kicked off in April 2015 when his single “Commas” debuted at No. 98. "Commas" would go on to peak at No. 19, and was followed by hit after hit from the Atlanta superstar until this week, when Jay Rock's "King's Dead," featuring Future, Kendrick Lamar, and James Blake, bowed out of the Hot 100 after charting at No. 68 last week.
Despite the impressive length of Future's most recent Hot 100 run, he produced just one top 10 hit in the three-year timespan: 2017's "Mask Off," which peaked at No. 5—still his highest-charting single to date.
Future isn't the only dominant rap star to see their Hot 100 dominance come to an end recently. Last August, Drake’s 430-week run came to a bitter end.
Now, for our sake and Future's, we need Beast Mode 2 more than ever.
