A week after the landing of his posthumous album, Juice WRLD has made Billboard history. Delivered on July 10, the feverishly-anticipated release, Legends Never Die made a massive impact on the charts, subsequently achieving a handful of milestones for the late Chicago rapper. Marking 2020’s biggest No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 chart with 497,000 equivalent album units, the project also became the highest-charting posthumous LP to debut, ahead of Notorious B.I.G.’s Life After Death and Tupac’s R U Still Down.
With all album tracks charting within the Hot 100, Legends Never Die has won five placements in the Top 10 and 12 in the Top 40. Juice WRLD is the third act in Billboard history to accomplish the landmark feat of occupying at least half of the Top 10 at once—joining Drake and The Beatles in the historical achievement.
The five hits include “Come & Go,” (no.2), “Wishing Well,” (no. 5), “Conversations,” (no. 7), “Life’s a Mess,” (no. 9), and “Hate the Other Side” (no. 10).
