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 – Juice landed a record deal with Interscope Records.
Soon after the signing, Juice WRLD released single “Lucid Dreams,” and “All Girls Are The Same,” both climbing to #1 and #2 on the Soundcloud top 50. Another triumph for Juice WRLD, Goodbye & Good Riddance quickly shot to the #6 spot on Apple Music’s worldwide Top Albums chart.
His project Goodbye & Good Riddance has spent 20 weeks on the Billboard 200 chart and peaked at #4. 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.
