On Friday, July 10th, a posthumous record commemorating the late rapper Juice WRLD, Legends Never Die, will be released.
Legends Never Die will feature previously released single ‘Righteous’ and ‘Tell Me You Love Me’ (featuring Trippie Redd.) The latest track from the record, ‘Life’s a Mess’, a collaboration with Halsey, has now arrived.
It’s a haunting track, that sees Juice WRLD’s inimitable, vocals accompanied by Halsey’s soaring harmonies. “Ah, sometimes life’s a mess,” the duo sing. “I get high when I’m upset/I remember when me and love ain’t click/Looking for something real, then I found it.”
Juice WRLD released two solo albums in his lifetime: Goodbye & Good Riddance and Death Race for Love. The musician passed away at 21 in December 2019 shortly after his Australian tour. He was 21. The musician died from a seizure brought on by an accidental drug overdose during a drug raid at Midway Airport in Chicago.
“Juice was one of the greatest people I have ever known, and one of the most brilliant artists we will ever live to witness,” Halsey wrote, “A true genius who had lyric and melody spilling out of him without any second thought or hesitation.”
The rapper, whose real name was Jarad A. Higgins, passed as a result of oxycodone and codeine toxicity, the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed.
Last month, South Sydney rapper The Kid LAROI released ‘Go’, a collaboration featuring Juice WRLD — whoa acted as a mentor the young artist.
“It’s been a little over 6 months since you been gone, and it still doesn’t feel right,” LAROI wrote of the single release. “Before we even met you were my favourite artist, and I still think everyday how cool it was that I got to b damn near family with my idol.
“You took me all over the world on a f*cking private jet and showed me a whole different side of life that not many people get to see. From all the months you let me live at your crib, to all the nights I spent watching and learning from you in the studio, to all the concerts and tours I got to witness..”
