XXXTentacion’s fans have continued to show him love this week, as both X’s albums, 17 and ?, continue to rise on the Billboard 200 Chart.
According to the latest rankings from Billboard, X’s posthumous rise on the charts is showing no signs slowing down, as ? climbs from number 3 to number 2 on the 200 Chart. 17 had a similar boost, climbing two spaces from number 7 to number 5. This new chart means that XXXTentacion is the latest artist who have the accomplishment having two albums in the top 5 the charts simultaneously; a feat that was previously accomplished by Future when he released his two albums, Future and Hndrxx.
The other artists at the top the list, which was almost entirely dominated by hip-hop artists, also moved around a bit. Post Malone’s Beerbongs & Bentleys moved back up from number 4 to number 3, and The Carters’ Everything is Love took a hit from number two to number 4. The big winner this week was pop-punk band Panic At The Disco! and their new album, Pray for the Wicked, which premiered at number 1 this week.
Regardless, the continued devotion X’s fans to his music after his death continues to impress. If they continue listening to X’s music through the next week it’s not unlikely that X could take the number 1 spot yet again with ?, almost four months after the album first came out. His music truly had a lasting impact on a great number music listeners in the United States and around the world.
