Juice WRLD’s first posthumous album, ‘Legends Never Die,’ was released last week as this was a highly anticipated project by fans of the late Chicago rapper. It was led by the single “Life’s a Mess” feat Halsey and contained 21 tracks with other features from Marshmello, Trippie Redd, and more.
A few days ago, it was revealed that Legends Never Die was set to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with over 508,000 units sold in its first week, according to Chart Data. It also marked the biggest debut of 2020 and top five all-time in streaming debuts. Now, it is officially certified gold by the RIAA in the US as well, per Chart Data. This is after it reached the 500,000 units mark in sales.
The release of Legends Never Die comes seven months after Juice’s passing in Chicago. He died at Midway airport after a reported drug overdose of oxycodone and codeine. He was pronounced dead when he arrived at Christ Hospital. His fan base has proven how loyal they are ever since he became a star in 2018 with the success of his breakout hit single, “Lucid Dreams,” which has since gone 6x platinum.
