Future and Juice Wrld just released their joint album, WRLD on Drugs
A fitting fusion, given the 19-year-old Chicago artist’s emo raps and Future’s signature emo-adjacent lyrics.
Hits Daily Double projects the album could move the equivalent of 105,000 album sales in its first week, with up to 10,000 units coming from physical sales.

The project features appearances from Lil Wayne, Young Thug, Gunna, and Nicki Minaj. Minaj’s verse on “Transformer” made headlines over a Milli Vanilli reference line that some fans believed was a shot at Cardi B and whether or not she writes her own raps.
Four albums in, pull a milli for a show / While these bitches is servin’ Milli Vanilli on the low.
Earlier this month, Juice freestyled for nearly an hour over old Eminem instrumentals on the Tim Westwood show.
Juice WRLD made appearances on Travis Scott’s ASTROWORLD and Lil Yachty newly released album, Nuthin’.
His breakout hits, “All Girls Are the Same”, “Lucid Dreams” appeared on his debut album Goodbye & Good Riddance released in May.
