One of the most commanding artists to emerge from the SoundCloud underground,Juice WRLD makes intro spectivehip-hop that’s emotionally raw but powerfully melodic. In 2018, the 20-year-old Chicago native earned such accolades as being named Apple Music’s Breakthrough Artist of the Year and Spotify’s Biggest Breakout Artist of 2018, partly due to the smash success of his four-times-platinum single “Lucid Dreams”:agenre-warpingtrack that’s spent over 38 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 (peaking at #2), in addition to hitting #1 on YouTube’s U.S. Top Songs Chart, #1 on Spotify’s Global Chart, and #2 on Billboard’s Streaming Songs Chart. Amassing more than a billion combined video and audio streams last year, “LucidDreams” appears on Juice WRLD’s first full-length project, the platinum-selling Goodbye & Good Riddance (released viaGrade A Productions/Interscope Recordsin May 2018). Along with reaching #4 on the Billboard 200,Goodbye & Good Riddancehas drawn wide spread critical praise—the NewYork Times, for instance,hailedthe project as “one of the year’s most effective hip-hop releases,”describing “Lucid Dreams” as “lush lonermusic” with a “deeply keen sense of pop efficiency.” Born Jarad Higgins in 1998, Juice WRLD grew upplaying piano, drums, and guitar,then began free styling in high school.

With his distinc tlyrical sensibilities shaped by al ove for punk-popbands like Panic! at the Disco, he soon established himself by shunning major streaming services and building a massive following on Soundcloud. Within weeks of premiering the video for his acclaimed single“All Girls Are TheSame”—featured as a“Best New Track” on Pitchforkin March 2018—Juice WRLD scored a deal with Interscope Records. By the end ofthe year, he’d racked up more than a billion streams on Spotify alone, with his songs earning 69 million hours of playfor over 52 millionfans in 65 countries. At the start of 2019, Juice WRLD continued his dominance and landed six songs on the Billboard Hot 100 for the week of January 19, far surpassing any other artist on the chart. Having recently completed a sold-out headlining tour of North America (and toured Europe and Australia as well), Juice WRLD’s plans for 2019 include making his debut performance at this year’s Coachella.
