XXXTentacion's "SAD!" has reentered the charts this week, landing at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Taken from his second studio album, ?, "SAD!" previously peaked at the No. 7 spot on the chart.
Last week, XXXTentacion, real name Jahseh Onfroy, was fatally shot in South Florida during an apparent robbery. Following his death, there's been an outpouring of support from fans, including Meek Mill, Kanye West, and Jamie Foxx.
As ChartData reports on Twitter, "SAD!" has hit the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. Meanwhile "Changes" and "Jocelyn Flores" also reached new peaks on the Hot 100, coming in at No. 18 and No. 19 respectively. "SAD!" is X's first No. 1 single, which also makes him the first lead artist to posthumously reach the top spot this century. With 49.9 million streams in the U.S., "SAD!" has seen a 264 percent increase in streams.
Both of X's studio albums, ? and his debut 17, have also reentered the charts coming in at the No. 3 and No. 7 spots on the Billboard 200 respectively. Album sales for ? increased by 397 percent following Onfroy's death, moving a total of 94,000 units while 17 moved 55,000 units.
It has been announced that a public memorial service for X will be held on June 27 at the Florida Panther's Stadium in Sunrise, Florida. An attorney for the late rapper confirmed with People that the service will include an open-casket viewing.
Police have arrested 22-year-old suspect Derick D. Williams in connection with the murder, charging him with first-degree murder and driving without a license. Williams went to court last week to hear the murder charges, and is currently being held without bond due to probable cause, as TMZ reports. Florida police have since issued additional arrest warrants for two other suspects wanted in connection with the apparent robbery.
On Sunday (June 24), XXXTentacion's Helping Hand charity event, which was announced before his death, went according to plan. The event gave out bagged lunches to the homeless and served as a memorial in honor of X. It was held at Charles R. Drew Elementary School in Miami.
Onfroy's mother Cleopatra revealed last week (June 22) that her son was expecting his first child at the time of his death. She didn't share who the mother was, but there's been speculation that it's the late rapper's ex-girlfriend Geneva Ayala, who accused him of domestic violence and abuse.
