Juice WRLD's "Legends Never Die" scores biggest US album debut of 2020
Juice WRLD’s posthumous album Legends Never Die has scored the biggest US album debut of 2020, the largest streaming week of the year, and the fourth-largest streaming week ever for an album (only behind Drake, Lil Wayne and Post Malone) – making it the biggest week for a hip-hop album since August 2018.
Legends Never Die is Juice WRLD’s second #1 album, following 2019’s Death Race for Love.
On the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, Juice WRLD is now the third artist ever to place five simultaneous songs in the Top 10 (behind Drake and The Beatles, respectively).
‘Come & Go (with Marshmello)’ debuts at number two, ‘Wishing Well’ at number five, ‘Conversations’ at number seven, ‘Life’s a Mess (ft. Halsey) at number nine and ‘Hate the Other Side (with Marshmello, Polo G, The Kid Laroi)’ at number 10.
In addition, Juice WRLD has placed five singles in the Top 10 on Spotify’s US chart, two in the Top 10 on Spotify’s Global chart, while the album is Top 5 on Apple Music’s Top Albums charts.
“Juice was the voice of a generation,” said Raj Jadeja, BMG’s VP Creative who worked closely with the artist and prolific songwriter. “With Legends Never Die, he revealed an honesty of his life experiences while guiding us through his battles of anxiety, depression, and addiction into a place of acceptance, hope, and ultimately love. Legends never die… Long live Juice WRLD!”
