Juice WRLD Legends Never Die Spoke Truth As HE Debuts No. 1
The tragic passing of the rapper Juice WRLD at the age of 21 has been nearly 9 months ago. Jarad Anthony Higgins rose from Illinois born December 2, 1998 and passed December 8, 2019. His posthumous album Legends Never Die, was released in July, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, with features from Halsey, Marshmello, and more.
On Friday (August 7), Juice WRLD hit us with a collabe that he spoke out about back in September. The song “Smile’ featured The Weeknd. The tag-teamed track functions as well-wishes to someone they love, even if it means they won’t be in that person’s life. “I’d do anything in my power to see you just smile,” Juice WRLD raps.
When Juice WRLD first hinted about the collab with The Weeknd he tweeted, “Me and The Weeknd would make a diamond record…” Nearly one year later, on Tuesday (August 4), The Weeknd teased the new single by sharing Juice’s post, then adding a new tweet, “XO + 999 Thursday Night.”
A corresponding lyric video showed a lone artist, painting two portraits, one depicting Juice WRLD and, the other, The Weeknd. At the end of the clip, both canvases sat side-by-side.
