Juice WRLD’s first posthumous album, Legends Never Die, is set to debut atop the Billboard 200 chart next week. Initial reports project that the album will sell anywhere between 400,000 and 440,000 units during its first week. Online, the project is projected to hit 400 million streams during its first week. Moreover, ten songs from the project will completely occupy Spotify’s top ten songs this Monday.
Overall, Legends Never Die will have the best first week of any album other than The Weeknd’s Blinding Lights. The late musician will also become the second musician to posthumously top the charts this year. This week, Pop Smoke sits at number one as the first musician to have his first album debut atop the Billboard 200 Chart posthumously.
This will likely not be the last posthumous album from the Chicago native. Members of his family and management have hinted at the possibility of new projects in the near future. Only time will tell.
