XXXTentacion has received enormous love over the past week or so, ever since the rapper’s unfortunate murder last Monday.

The song has maintained steady traction since then across all streaming platforms. XXX has had two songs in the Top 10 at iTunes, with ‘SAD!’ hitting #1 a few times, while his two albums 17 and ? consistently remaining in top 5 of that chart. This has helped ‘SAD!’ hit number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week, up 51 places from last week.

With this, XXXTentacion is the first lead artist to posthumously reach #1 on the Hot 100 this century, as Chart Data noted. The song has crossed a whopping 227 million views on YouTube. On Friday, XXX’s mother revealed that he was expecting a child with his girlfriend.
