Juice WRLD‘s recently released third studio album – his first posthumous effort – burst onto the Billboard 200 with 2020’s highest sales yet.
The chart crowning was achieved primarily on the back of gargantuan, history-making streaming figures (422.63 million to be exact) – a figure that places him fourth on the all-time highest first-week streams list.
That victory was accompanied by news the late Hip Hop star was penciled in history books for other reasons as well.
“Juice WRLD sends five songs into the Hot 100’s top 10, led by “Come & Go,” with Marshmello, a debut at No. 2. Three other tracks enter the chart in the top tier: “Wishing Well,” at No. 5; “Conversations,” at No. 7; and “Hate the Other Side,” also with Marshmello and featuring Polo G and The Kid LAROI, at No. 10. Plus, “Life’s a Mess,” with Halsey, vaults from No. 74 to No. 9 in its second week on the chart.”
Elsewhere, the Music Industry Bible revealed:
“Juice WRLD ties the record for the most simultaneous top 10 Hot 100 debuts, thanks to “Come & Go,” “Wishing Well,” “Conversations” and “Hate the Other Side,” at Nos. 2, 5, 7 and 10, respectively. Lil Wayne sent four songs onto the chart in the top 10 on Oct. 13, 2018, after Drake first premiered a quartet of titles in the top 10 on July 14, 2018.”
The chart triumphs makes him the third act in history, following The Beatles and Drake, to occupy at least 5 spaces in the Hot 100’s top 10 concurrently. He’s also the third act to debut at least four songs in the same chart region (behind Drake and Lil Wayne).
What’s more, Juice WRLD is also the youngest solo act to accomplish both feats.
