12 Albums You Forgot Were Released In 2015
We rounded up a dozen album that came and went so far this year.

Fetty Wap‘s reign is extending far beyond his spring/summer smash “Trap Queen.” The New Jersey MC, whose real name is Willie Maxwell, is still hanging on at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week with his breakthrough smash, but its followup, “My Way,” just leaped up 80 positions to #7.

Billboard points out that this marks the first time a rapper has juggled two singles in the Top 10 since late summer 2011, when Lil Wayne‘s “She Will” entered at #2 while “How To Love” was hovering at #6.

Fetty also has the distinction of having three songs in the Top 20, with “679” currently perched at #18 on the Hot 100.

Elsewhere, OMI still rules the main singles chart for a third week with his mega-hit “Cheerleader,” while Future scores his first Billboard 200-topping album with DS2, his third studio release, which sold 122,000 copies out of the gate.

The Top 10 of the Billboard 200:

1. Future, DS2 *new* *1 week*
2. Taylor Swift, 1989
