Juice WRLD is continuing to prove that Legends Never Die. 👏

Selling another 162,000 equivalent album units, Juice's first posthumous release stays put at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for the second week in a row.

Overall, the intimate 21-track collection has pushed over 650,000 units after debuting with 497,000, marking the biggest week for any release across genres this year. On Saturday, July 25, he was the second most-streamed artist on Spotify behind Taylor Swift with 32 million plays.

It's no surprise T-Swift dominated streaming, as she surprised fans with her eighth studio album, Folklore, the day before.

Legends Never Die also ties Juice's inaugural album Death Race For Love for most weeks atop the chart when looking at his catalog. It reigned for a couple of weeks in March 2019.

Right behind Juice is Pop Smoke. Celebrating what would've been his 21st birthday on July 20, Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon received an extra 15 songs for the deluxe edition. With this boost, the album earned 138,00 equivalent units and secured the runner-up spot for the second consecutive week.

One of the featured artists on that deluxe package, Brooklyn's own Fivio Foreign, made some headlines over the weekend when he said that he was "mad" that Pop Smoke's alleged killers were caught by police.

"I was tight. I was mad they got locked up," he revealed in an interview with DJ Vlad. "Now that we know who it came from." Fivio seems to be suggesting that he would rather have them face the consequences for their actions outside.

Back to Billboard, a newcomer to the ranks to keep an eye on is the 21-year-old Alabama artist NoCap, whose mixtape Steel Human hit #31 on the latest update. Check him out with Lil Skies in the "Lightbeam" video.
