XXXTentacion’s ‘SAD!’ Rises To No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100
A week after his tragic death, XXXTentacion has landed his first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The track “SAD!” had previously peaked at No. 7 back in March, but it just made the jump from 52 all the way up to No. 1.
Last week, “SAD!” also broke the single-day streaming record on Spotify, bypassing Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” by reportedly racking up 10.4 million spins.
According to Billboard, X has become the first artist to top the Hot 100 posthumously in a lead role since The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Mo Money Mo Problems” in 1997.
XXXTentacion is the first lead artist to posthumously reach #1 on the Hot 100 this century.
