Artist of the Week: Juice WRLD

At such a young age, the 'Lucid Dreams' hitmaker has garnered a lot of accomplishments through his music.

AceShowbiz - There's no denying that Juice WRLD is one of the greatest rising stars in both hip-hop and music industry right now. At such a young age, the 1998-born rapper has garnered a lot of accomplishments through his music, especially his breakout song "Lucid Dreams".

"Lucid Dreams" was initially released on SoundCloud back in June 2017, before eventually being announced as an official single in the following year after it garnered over 2.5 million streams on the site. The song didn't have a good start on Billboard's Hot 100 chart, debuting at No. 75. But it quickly rose to No. 35 in the following week and finally peaked at No. 3.

The success of the song was definitely a good advantage for Juice, who was preparing his debut album "Goodbye & Good Riddance" at the time. Released on May 23, the album garnered positive reviews from music critics as well as commercial success. Jay Balfour of Pitchfork said of the album, "His heart-on-his-sleeve coping sounds both ingratiating and grating. In that way at least, he's bottled up sad sap adolescence remarkably well."

"Goodbye & Good Riddance" debuted at No. 15 on Billboard 200 chart before ascending to the top 10 in the following week. It has been staying steady within top ten since then, with the album peaking at No. 6. The album is also well received overseas as it was certified Gold by RMNZ in New Zealand. Meanwhile, the album peaked at No. 5 in several countries including Canada and Norwegia.

Juice is currently hitting the road in support of the album. Called "The WRLD Domination Tour", the trek launched on March 9 in Chicago and is set to conclude on October 31 in Bloomington. Lil Mosey and YBN Cordae are joining the "Wasted" spitter on the tour as supporting acts.
