The two days following Juice’s death saw streams of the rapper’s songs jump 453% as compared to the two previous days (25 million streams). He collected 115 million on-demand audio and video streams on December 8 and 9.
This week, “Lucid Dreams” rose to #1 on both the U.S. Spotify and the U.S. Apple Music charts. “Lucid Dreams” amassed 18 million of Juice’s 115 million two-day streams. “Bandit” with YoungBoy Never Broke Again and “Legends” each totaled 13 million streams during that period.
According to prognosticators, Juice WRLD’s two studio LPs are projected to rise back into the Top 10 on the next album chart. 2018’s Goodbye & Good Riddance is predicted to enter the Top 5, and former 2019 Billboard 200 leader Death Race For Love is looking to progress to around the #9 spot.
Higgins family has also put out a public statement concerning their loss. “We loved Jarad with all of our hearts and cannot believe our time with him has been cut short. As he often addressed in his music and to his fans, Jarad battled with prescription drug dependency,” stated Higgins’ family.
They added, “Addiction knows no boundaries and its impact goes way beyond the person fighting it. Jarad was a son, brother, grandson, friend and so much more to so many people who wanted more than anything to see him defeat addiction.”
The family let everyone know that his legacy and life will continue to be celebrated.
“We know that Jarad’s legacy of love, joy and emotional honesty will live on.”
