The massive support for XXXTentacion has continued since untimely death last week. His single “SAD!” broke Spotify’s single day streaming record after it was streamed 10.4 million times on June 19th (the day of his murder). This has pushed the record to jump 51 spots to hit number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week. According to @ChartData, that feat makes him the first musician ever to posthumously reach #1 on the Hot 100 this century. His two album ? & 17 will also be in the top 5 one Billboard album sales charts. XXX’s mother also revealed that the rapper was expecting a child with his girlfriend at the time of his death. RIP XXXTentacion. May you name live on forever.
XXXTentacion is the first lead artist to posthumously reach #1 on the Hot 100 this century.
