Emo-rap's rising star makes his debut on the charts.
Today has been massive for Juice WRLD, the young rapper from the Chicago area who's witnessing a big rise to fame. He already announced his upcoming project, Goodbye & Good Riddance will be dropping any minute now, and he debuted a song "Lean Wit Me," on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 Radio show.
Today, it's been announced that two of Juice's biggest singles, "Lucid Dreams" and "All Girls Are The Same," have both premiered simultaneously on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
"Lucid Dreams" is the obvious front runner of the two, and premiered this week at number 74 on the Hot 100 chart, with 10 million streams in the U.S. "All Girls Are The Same" came in noticeably lower, at 92, with only 8.9 million streams in the U.S. Furthermore, Juice also made significant gains on Billboard's "Emerging Artists" chart, jumping 31 places from numer 34 to number 3.
While these debut numbers might pale to someone like BlocBoy JB, who premiered in the top 10 with his Drake-featured mega hit, "Look Alive," one has to consider that these numbers are still impressive considering that Juice is a Soundcloud rapper with a couple of Cole Bennett music videos to his name. Well, that and a $3 million deal with Interscope.
There's always room for these songs to go up, and they just might considering that Juice has a project that should be dropping soon. Regardless, it's a very good start for an emerging artist in the rap game. Expect to see more of Juice WRLD on there very soon.
