19-year-old genre-warping musician Juice WRLD established himself as a Chicago-area native who shunned major streaming services and built a massive following on Soundcloud. Within weeks of debuting a video for smash hit "All Girls Are The Same" in February - the single received "Best New Track" feature on Pitchfork - Juice landed a record deal with Interscope Records.
Soon after the signing, Juice WRLD only increased his dominance in the Soundcloud world, with his May-released single "Lucid Dreams," and "All Girls Are The Same," both climbing to #1 and #2 on the Soundcloud top 50. As Juice WRLD continued his meteoric rise, those two tracks also brought his Billboard Hot 100 debut in late May on the same day his first full-length project, Goodbye & Good Riddance, had its release via Grade A Productions/Interscope Records. Another triumph for Juice WRLD, Goodbye & Good Riddance quickly shot to the #6 spot on Apple Music's worldwide Top Albums chart. As one of Apple Music's Top 10 global streaming artists, he's also joined an illustrious lineup of emerging and GRAMMY-nominated stars included in the platform's Up Next program.
"Lucid Dreams" has spent 21 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at #2, and has hit #1 on YouTube's U.S. Top Songs Chart, #1 on Spotify's Global Chart, and #2 on Billboard's Streaming Songs Chart. His project Goodbye & Good Riddance has spent 20 weeks on the Billboard 200 chart and peaked at #4. Juice performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and at the 2018 VMAs. He sold out his debut headlining North American tour and has toured extensively throughout Europe. He's received critical acclaim from the New York Times ("the most instinctual melodist of the SoundCloud generation",) Chicago Tribune ("Juice Wrld has captured the minds of [a] generation",) USA Today, Billboard, Complex, FADER and more
