Juice Wrld’s legacy lives on through his music, and the late rapper’s first posthumous album Legends Never Die reminded us of his incredible talent. His fans couldn’t wait to get their own copy, and the album quickly reached the no. 1 spot on the Billboard 200.

Legends Never Die was released on July 10th, and it easily topped the chart with 497,000 album-equivalent units sold. It was the biggest week for an album released in 2020, and it even managed to surpass The Weeknd’s latest LP After Hours.

Juice Wrld’s new album also had the biggest streaming week of the year with a total of 422.63 million on-demand streams in the US alone. This also happens to be the fourth largest streaming week ever, but the all-time record is still held by Drake’s Scorpion.

Legends Never Die was preceded by several singles, including “Righteous” and “Tell Me U Luv Me” featuring Trippie Redd. It also includes the Halsey collaboration “Life’s a Mess”, “Come & Go” featuring Marshmello, and a solo single “Wishing Well”.
