The Notic

Shapers of the culture


The late XXXTentacion’s music continues to reach milestones. The South Florida rapper’s popular track “Sad!” recently surpassed 1 billion streams on Spotify.

“Sad!” was originally released on March 1, 2018, along with the song “Changes.” Produced by X’s frequent-collaborator John Cunningham, the song is an upbeat but somber cut that finds XXX looking for meaning.

“Who am I? Someone that’s afraid to let go, uh/You decide, if you’re ever gonna let me know (yeah)/Suicide, if you ever try to let go/I’m sad and low,” he rhymes. “I’m lost then I’m found but/It’s torture being in love/I love when you’re around/But I fucking hate when you leave.”

The single would go on to appear on X’s ? album, which was released two weeks later. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and the song reached the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100.

As of press time, the “Sad!” total sits at 1,000,303,492 listens.
