Legends Never Die, the first posthumous album from Chicago rapper Juice WRLD, has been released to streaming services.

The record has caused such a stir among fans that it reportedly caused Spotify to crash upon its release at midnight on Friday 10 July.

The album, which now seems to be streaming correctly from Spotify, iTunes and other major services, features a number of guest appearances, including by Halsey, Marshmello, Trippie Redd, and Polo G.

Two spoken-word clips from Juice WRLD are used to bookend the record, including “Anxiety”, in which he addresses the issues he tackles in his music, and the outro “Juice WRLD Speaks From Heaven”.

Juice WRLD died aged 21 in December last year. His death was ruled as an accidental overdose.

His death sparked an outpouring of grief from fans and fellow artists. Among those to pay tribute were Drake, The Weeknd, Chance the Rapper, Meek Mill and Lil Uzi Vert.

Legends Never Die is the third solo album released under Juice WRLD’s name, following 2018’s Goodbye & Good Riddance, and 2019’s Death Race for Love.

He has featured posthumously on a number of tracks by fellow rappers, including Eminem (on “Godzilla”) and the G Herbo song “PTSD” with Chance the Rapper and Lil Uzi Vert.
