Juice WRLD Hits 30 Billion Streams On Spotify Alone

Juice WRLD just hit another huge milestone in his career, even years after his tragic passing. Moreover, it was recently revealed that the Chicago star recently surpassed 30 billion streams on Spotify alone across all credits. With that in mind, and not even considering his streams on platforms like Apple Music and YouTube, he stands as one of the most streamed artists of all time. Recently, close friend and collaborator Cole Bennet celebrated another achievement in each of their careers. Via Instagram, he revealed that the first Juice video he ever shot recently reached 300 million views on YouTube.

Said example is just one of many where you can see the 21-year-old's legacy and impact continue to manifest. Another takes a much more personal and somber tone, and it comes from Polo G. Furthermore, the fellow Chicago MC expressed that he stopped taking Percocet because of Juice WRLD passing away far too soon. "“It made me look at a lot of s**t differently,” Polo stated. “That made me stop popping Percocets altogether, though. ‘Cause I know he wouldn’t want me on that s**t."

Not only that, but the "Pop Out" artist's decision even influenced his own father to follow in his footsteps. "Being able to see that and say, ‘Damn, my son can get it together’ — I need to [as well],” Taurus Bartlett Sr. said. Despite his deafening absence, fans still get plenty of music from Juice WRLD often thanks to his estate releasing posthumous tracks. While this practice isn't favored by many out there, it at least gives fans some sense of what could've been. Moreover, the most recent offering from Juice comes from his recently released single, "The Light."

However, those posthumous releases often come with baggage- and sometimes, they're not treated with due respect. For example, fans expressed outrage when Juice's name was removed from the cover art of a posthumous The Kid LAROI collab. "I had NOTHING to do with this & had no idea it was even a thing until now,” LAROI tweeted to clarify. “I’ve hit the label and asked them to change it back. I’m sorry & genuinely have no clue why [they changed it] without my permission. I would never approve of that. EVER." Regardless of that unfortunate development, let us know your favorite album or songs from the late legend down below. Also, log back into HNHH for the latest news and updates on Juice WRLD.
