So congrats to future most of high off life starting some was actually driven by streaming tippety with sixteen thousand of its first week coming from album sales and those sales were largely driven by merchandise album. Bundles sold via futures web store. And also some signed albums that he was selling through the same store and unlike last week's number one album Now's good intentions.

Just seventeen helping his first week so congrats to future and next week. It actually looks like another rap.
