Future "Honest" First Week Sales Projections

Projections are in for Future's "Honest" album.

Future's Honest is set to sell between 45,000 and 50,000 units in its first week of availability, according to HITS Daily Double.

The singer's Honest project earned a 3 out of 5 in its HipHopDX review. "While he doesn’t completely remedy the flaws that held back Pluto, 'Future Hendrix' has incrementally improved," HipHopDX says in its review. "He’s still plagued by bouts of lazy writing and the inclusion of older songs such as 'Karate Chop,' 'Sh!t' and 'Honest' have the unintended effect of making the project feel stale at times. 'Move That Dope' and 'Benz Friendz' may contend for two of 2013’s best collaborations, and having focused assists from Pusha T, Pharrell and Andre 3000 don’t hurt. As a soloist, Future is learning to play to his strengths. No one realistically expects Future to make the type of leap Three Stacks did between Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik and ATLiens. But if he expounds on the type of substance he hints at on 'Special,' his album cuts will be as equally potent as his singles. For now, he’s returned with a slightly updated, less flawed version of 2012’s Pluto. It’s not the classic balance of style and substance ushered in by the Dungeon Family’s first generation. But it does help further the argument that both elements aren’t mutually exclusive." 

In August 2013, Future spoke about his Honest effort.

Honest is the new me," Future said at the time. "It represents the truth I try to bring to my music...I plan to break the mold with this album so that it will be nothing like you’ve heard from me or any other artist out. You can either tell the truth or face the Future.”

    I'm sick of this guy speaking so intellectually about his basic, formulaic club-based music. "I plan to break the mold with this album so that it will be nothing like youve heard from me or any other artist out. You can either tell the truth or face the Future." Tony Montana = Same Damn Time = Sh!t = Move That Dope Turn On The Lights = Neva Eva = Honest = I Won It works for him, but it's all the same. I'm just being honest.

    "pop that was bareeeeeely his song" It was on his album. Still counts even though I agree his flow is usually so bad they limit his lines.

    This is what I call the Ciara effect whoever she goes out with they fall off. Bow wow - was doing decent goes out with Ciara now stuck on 106. 50 Cent - Was a major player in the game Ciara goes out with him and he falls off (even though he's releasing good music again) Future - Does well independent goes out with Ciara and flops on a major, whilst touring with Drake and having good radio play Go out with Ciara nigga you gonna fall off in some way

    • truth is

      funny thing his sells went up since he started dating ciara; because she is more known than him being a multiplatinum grammy winner so it was a step up for him, as for 50 cent he experienced a declined when he lost that infamous challenge against kanye and bow wow grew up and only dope because he was a kid smh you sound young as shit

    After all that shit he was saying about how he makes better songs than Drake or whatever... lol, 45k compared to Drizzys 600k!

  • Anonymous

    How you go on tour with Drake and still only move 45k first week?

    • Anonymous

      Cause when you diss Drake you diss yourself. Future bit the hand that was feeding him, and America knew this so they ignored his album like the plague.

    Rap is corny now, they can payola the radio stations to play this garbage all they want but nobody really likes this shit enough to buy it.

      ^^^^What's the difference? If you pay a middleman to do what you can't legally do, that's called a loophole.

      You fucken idiot no one pays radio stations to play records!!! They hire radio liaisons to get their music on p1 stations!! Learn something about the business before you put your broke ass comments on here!!

    Those are some horrible projections.

  • dentaldamboy

    This guy is ungreatful and tried to bite the hand that feeds him. Now he lost all of his fans. Bottom line is...bad things happen to those who cross Drake.

  • 614grind

    When Kanye, Drake, 3000, and Pusha T on your album and every radio outlet plays your music and you still can't break 100K, you suck...honest.

    Shitty journalism right here. Why can't this and iggy sales predictions be one article?

    • Johnny

      Who gives a shit whether the articles are combined or separate. People constantly harass DX about the most trivial things. This site has a lot of good qualities.

    • Anonymous

      Yet DX was able to fit long ass interviews on one page.

    • DX.com

      Because A)we receive different sales projections every other day and can't fit them onto ONE article and B)you're not the one writing it, that's why!

      so you click on 2 articles instead and they get twice the ad revenue
