XXXTENTACION Posthumously Earns 4th Billion-Streamed Spotify Song


XXXTENTACION’s legacy continues to grow even more than three years after his tragic death. According to Chart Data, X has added another song to an elusive club featuring tracks with more than a billion Spotify streams, as the piano-laden “changes” enters the fold with a new milestone.

“XXXTENTACION’s ‘changes’ has now surpassed 1 billion streams on Spotify,” Chart Data wrote. “It’s his fourth song to reach this milestone.”

“Changes” joins other staples from the late Florida rapper’s discography such as “SAD,” “Jocelyn Flores” and “Moonlight” to cross the billion-stream mark on Spotify. He is reportedly the first artist to ever notch four songs with over a billion streams in Spotify history.

“Changes” arrived on March 2, 2018 alongside “SAD!” as a two-pack of singles ahead of the release of X’s ? album. The sorrowful tune is produced by frequent collaborator John Cunningham and features background vocals by PnB Rock. “Changes” was certified 3x-platinum by the RIAA in September 2020.

XXXTENTACION’s legacy lives on as he was honored with a mural at Rolling Loud Miami alongside other fallen rappers gone far too soon such as Pop Smoke, Nipsey Hussle, Lil Peep and Juice WRLD.

XXXTENTACION — born Jahsef Onfroy — was shot and killed during an armed robbery on June 18, 2018, outside Riva Motorsports Motorcycle & Marine Superstore in Deerfield Beach, Florida.
