XXXTentacion's "Smile" Has Hit 1 Billion Views On YouTube


XXXTENTACION ’s largest hit “SAD!” has surpassed one billion views on YouTube.

Released in March 2018, it topped the Billboard Hot 100 jumping from No. 52 all the way to No. 1.

The Florida native was shot and killed in Deerfield Park, Florida on June 18, 2018. He now shares space with Drake and Future. The duo is also part of the billion-view club with “Life Is Good” passing the mark after going 8x-platinum.

XXXTentacion's "Moonlight" also surpassed one billion streams on Spotify, last year. That number was celebrated by DJ Scheme, a longtime friend and collaborator of X.

"1 Billions plays on 3 different songs," he writes ."Jah is the only artist to do it." Another Triple X collaborator John Cunningham (who wrote, produced, and engineered on "Moonlight") shared some thoughts on the milestone, noting that "in all of music, not just hip hop, no other independent artist has done this."

One billion streams in a little over two years makes X one of the most popular artists on Spotify.
