Late Chicago rapper Juice WRLD‘s team has stayed true to putting out a much-needed Legends Never Die album. On Friday, the 21-song project reached the masses across all music streaming platforms.
Juice x Legends
At midnight, WLRD’s must-hear album officially premiered online. The project features a slew of collaborations from Trippie Redd, Halsey, Marshmello and Polo G.
Legends Never Die, the first posthumous album from Chicago rapper Juice WRLD, has arrived. The new LP features “Life’s a Mess” (with Halsey), as well as “Righteous,” “Come & Go” (with Marshmello), and “Tell Me U Luv Me” (with Trippie Redd). In addition to “Come & Go,” Marshmello appears on Juice WRLD’s “Hate the Other Side” along with Polo G and Kid Laroi. The album is bookended by spoken-word clips from Juice WRLD, with the final track titled “Juice WRLD Speaks From Heaven – Outro.” (Pitchfork)
Heading into this past Tuesday, Chicago rapper G Herbo went to his social media pages to share Juice’s LP artwork. Herbo also dug deeper and referenced their close-knit bond.

Wait, There’s More
On Monday, WRLD’s new “Life’s a Mess” song landed across the Internet as more than just a quick listen. The Halsey-featured record is accompanied with an official visualizer helping bring Juice’s words to life.
The song balances a hard-hitting low end with somber synths and aching, but ultimately uplifting, vocals from Juice WRLD, with Halsey providing harmonies on the hook and guiding the song’s outro. “Life’s a Mess” follows previously released Juice WRLD tracks, “Tell Me U Luv Me,” featuring Trippie Redd, and “Righteous,” which marked the rapper’s first posthumous single. Both songs will appear on Legends Never Die, although a full tracklist has yet to be revealed. (Rolling Stone)
Before You Go
On Monday, it was revealed a posthumous album would be dropping this week.
“This Friday we will be honoring the life and art of Juice WRLD by releasing his album, ‘Legends Never Die.’ We feel that this collection of 15 songs best represents the music Juice was in the process of creating. The album shines a light on the collaborators that meant so much to Juice and deeply impacted his musical process. Juice dedicated his music to his fans and, now more than ever, we hope this album brings some reprieve to everyone during these unsettling times. Please join us in celebrating Juice’s life by enjoying this album. Juice’s legacy will live forever; LEGENDS NEVER DIE!”
“Friday!!” -Lil Bibby’s Twitter
