Evol reached #1 four months after What A Time To Be Alive. The Future and Drake collaborative project opened at #1 in October. Future scored his very first #1 with DS2 in July. That is only a span of six months and 20 days between his initial #1 album and his third #1 album.

According to Billboard, Future is the fastest act to score three #1 albums since Herb Alpert in 1965 and 1966 with Whipped Cream and Other Delights (November 1965), Going Places (March 1966), and What Now My Love (May 1966). However, the cast of Glee scored three #1 soundtracks in one month and 19 days in 2010, but those titles were not traditional artist-driven albums. In addition, that makes Future the fastest rap artist to three #1 albums in history.
