Juice Wrld born as Jarad Anthony Higgins was an American rapper, singer, and songwriter from Chicago, Illinois. His song “Lucid Dreams” has been played on the music streaming platform Spotify over one billion times.
“Lucid Dreams” along with his earlier hit single “All Girls Are the Same” helped him gain a recording contract with Lil Bibby’s Grade A Productions and Interscope Records.
“All Girls Are the Same” and “Lucid Dreams” were two of five singles that were included in Higgins’ debut studio album Goodbye & Good Riddance (2018), which went on to become certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) on December 5, 2018. The album enjoyed positive critical reception, and contained three other singles: “Armed and Dangerous“, “Lean wit Me” and “Wasted“, all of which charted on the Billboard Hot 100. After collaborating with Future on the mixtape Wrld on Drugs (2018), Higgins released his second studio album Death Race for Love (2019), which went to number one on the Billboard 200.
Higgins died on December 8, 2019, after suffering a drug-related seizure at Midway International Airport. His death prompted an outpouring of grief across social media and the music industry. His first posthumous album, Legends Never Die (2020), debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. The album was the biggest posthumous debut in 23 years since Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. posthumously released albums in 1997, with both their albums also debuting at number one. The record broke and tied all-time records with the likes of The Beatles and Drake (5 singles in Top 10 at one time).
