Atlanta rapper Future has topped the US Billboard 200 album chart for the first time, with his album 'DS2'. It's the third record for the 31-year-old and his first number one album. Pop star Taylor Swift's best-selling album of 2014 '1989' came in at number 2, having spent 38 weeks on the chart. 'Black Rose,' by hip-hop artist Tyrese fell to No. 3. It premiered at No. 1 last week, marking Tyrese's first chart-topper in his nearly two-decade long career. On the Hot 100 Singles Chart OMI's reggae hit 'Cheerleader' remains in the top spot for the third week in a row. The track has been a summer smash topping charts throughout Europe, the UK, Australia and Canada.
