We recently reported that after XXXTentacion's death, his music sales have increased at an exponential rate. Well now X is breaking history.
XXX's latest single, "SAD!" has been getting some extra play. It originally peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard charts, but now it has skyrocketed to No. 1.
Via The Shaderoom,
As ChartData reports on Twitter, "SAD!" has hit the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. Meanwhile "Changes" and "Jocelyn Flores" also reached new peaks on the Hot 100, coming in at No. 18 and No. 19 respectively. "SAD!" is X's first No. 1 single, which also makes him the first lead artist to posthumously reach the top spot this century. With 49.9 million streams in the U.S., "SAD!" has seen a 264 percent increase in streams.
