According to Our Generation Music, “Sad!” is officially eligible for 4x Platinum status, which speaks to its sheer popularity on streaming services.
The single’s posthumous success is a reminder of X’s popularity, and proof of the legacy he left behind.
One has to wonder if we’ll ever hear unreleased music from the rapper, who had originally promised two more albums in 2018, tentatively titled Skins and Bad Vibes Forever.
In the interim, however, “Sad” remains a viable option for those seeking another moment with the late rapper. Rest in peace XXXTentacion.
