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)
Wait, There’s More
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.
“IM HONORED TO SAY I REALLY KNEW YOU KID! YOU WAS REALLY MY LIL BROTHER & THATS THE COLDEST SHIT IN THE 🌏 TO ME.. JUICE🌍 999 LEGENDS NEVER DIE @juicewrld999 ❤️” -G Herbo’s Instagram
Before You Go
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)
