Juice WRLD’s latest album has generated the biggest posthumous debut in nearly 20 years at 497,000 equivalent album units. That makes Juice WRLD now in the conversation with GOATs like Tupac and Notorious B.I.G. as he’s put together the most successful posthumous project since Life After Death and R U Still Down were released in 1997.
The album had the biggest first-week sales of 2020, passing The Weeknd’s After Hours. Juice WRLD and his team were also able to craft the biggest debut week for an album since Taylor Swift’s Lover hit streaming services in August 2019. This boosted Juice into a tier that includes acts like Drake, Post Malone, and Lil Wayne, as Legends Never Die grabbed the fourth-largest streaming debut in history.
“The overwhelming love that millions of music fans clearly have for Jarad reminds us how much his poetic words, creativity, and bright light continues to shine throughout the world,” said his mother.
The 21-song album dropped on July 10. The project features appearances from Trippie Redd, Polo G, and more. There are also interludes from Young Thug, Rob Markman, and others.
