Sales of his songs grew 500% after his passing
This Tuesday marks a year since the death of Juice Wrld, one of the most listened to rappers in the last two years.
Despite his death, Juice Wrld’s music remains more relevant than ever and the 5.9 views this year on Spotify certify it.
Sales of his songs grew 500% after his passing, according to Variety magazine.
The rapper died at age 21 at Chicago’s Midway International Airport from an overdose of codeine and oxycodone.
His girlfriend, Ally Lotti, who was with him at the time, said he had convulsed. He was then taken by ambulance to the nearest hospital, where he was pronounced dead several minutes later.
Lotti said that Jarad Anthony Higgins, the rapper’s real name, had problems with various substances, including Percocet.
His girlfriend recently revealed that she is expecting a child from Juice Wrld.
Since 2015, while in high school, the artist began uploading songs to SoundCloud. The song “All the girls are the same” caught the attention of the record company Interscope Records, which offered her a $ 3 million contract.
The singer rose to fame in 2018 with the album Goodbye & Good riddance, which featured the song Lucid Dreams, his biggest hit.
In July of this year his first posthumous album “Legends Never Die” was released, voice messages and calls from the artist, as well as 18 previously unreleased songs.
