Juice WRLD will forever hold a tremendous influence on the music industry. Breaking barriers of emo-trap-rap, he continues to resonate worldwide as the sixth track from Legends Never Die gets rave reviews. Smile featuring The Weekend debuted within Top 10 of Hot 100 Chart, landing in at number 8. This track also lands Juice as having more top 10’s on the Billboard Hot 100 than any artist this year. The sing-along-wholesome-as-hell tune is Juice WRLD’s 7th song that has debut on Billboard Charts this year alone, and his 9th overall from his career. Previous songs that helped him achieve these records from the recent Legends Never Die include:
‘Come & Go’ at No. 2
‘Wishing Well’ at No. 5
‘Conversations’ at No. 7
‘Life’s a Mess’ at No. 9
‘Hate The Other Side’ at No. 10
Juice WRLD is the third artist to claim five of the Top 10 slots in a single week, following Drake and the Beatles. Brought to life July 10th, the record-defying posthumous album debuted at number #1 on the Billboard 200 Chart and scored the biggest streaming week of 2020, outshining The Weekend’s After Hours (We’re certain he doesn’t mind). Legends Never Die made history as the most successful posthumous debut since Notorious B.I.G’s Life After Death (690K) and Tupac’s R U Still Down (549k) in 1997. Fans of all genres of music can agree that those albums were staples to the industry then and now. Making it clear that this album will hold its place in the industry for years to come.
