On December 8, the day of his death, the late rapper’s music saw an insane spike on streaming platforms, rising by approximately 487 percent, accounting for over 38 million streams in the US alone. To put that figure into perspective, it works out at around 24 million times more than any other artist that day.
A total of four Juice WRLD songs are now on the Apple Music and Spotify top 10 charts, with “Lucid Dreams” being the most-streamed track. The second most-streamed song is “Legends,” which features a line that many fans saw as the 21-year-old rapper predicting his untimely death — “What’s the 27 Club / We ain’t making it past 21.”
The Chicago-born rapper suddenly passed away following a seizure at Chicago’s Midway Airport.
