Experts are predicting well over 50 million streams.
According to Chart Data, the most relied upon source for provisional sales numbers in the Digital Era, Juice WRLD's Lucid Dreams is challenging for for the number one spot on next week's Hot 100. The experts expect well over 50 million streams for "Lucid Dreams" on all platforms, by the end of week. The single is his second to reach such heights. "All Girls Are The Same," has over 46 million streams on Spotify alone. It seems a truly mixed crowd is taking to his emotional raps. There's no better time in rap history to do battle like Kurt Cobain, with the reflexes of a Koala.
"Lucid Dreams" obviously goes as far as the subject lines takes it. The king of SoundCloud is a title even Smokepurpp only refers to in jest. Juice WRLD, for all intents and purposes, is forcing himself into a corner, but it all fares well, he could make out rich in the balance of time. The Billboard Hot 100's top position is currently held by Post Malone & Ty Dolla $ign for "Psycho," which in turn finally toppled "Nice For What" after 9 whole weeks on the chart. Juice has one EP under his belt, and several winding paths to choose from. May his next move be his best.
