XXXTentacion's "Sad!" continues to succeed, even after the rapper's death.
On June 18th, 2018, rapper XXXTentacion was murdered in his car, leaving fans across the world in mourning. He died mere months after releasing his sophomore album ?, which was led off with his melodic single "Sad!" Now, the melancholic banger is proving to be the rapper's biggest hit, and arguably one of the definitive songs of his young career. According to Our Generation Music, "Sad!" is officially eligible for 4x Platinum status, which speaks to its sheer popularity on streaming services.
The single's posthumous success is a reminder of X's popularity, and proof of the legacy he left behind. One has to wonder if we'll ever hear unreleased music from the rapper, who had originally promised two more albums in 2018, tentatively titled Skins and Bad Vibes Forever. In the interim, however, "Sad" remains a viable option for those seeking another moment with the late rapper. Rest in peace XXXTentacion.
