The late 20 year old rapper soared to the number 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 following his sudden death last week. Ironically enough, the last to accomplish this was The Notorious B.I.G, who did so after his 1997 murder. This is XXXTentacion’s second broken record this week, as his track “SAD!” became the most streamed song on Spotify on the day he was shot and killed.
Though the young artist received significant criticism and negative publicity following a domestic assault conviction, his music has left an impact on millions and surely won’t be forgotten anytime soon. X is only the eighth artist to reach the number one spot posthumously, and the first to do so in the past twenty-one years. Check out “SAD!” below.
