After carving out a path for himself with his emo-leaning single "Lucid Dreams," Juice WRLD has morphed into a sought out collaborator. Earlier this month, he and Future joined forces for their joint mixtape, WRLD on Drugs, which found the rap tandem shelling out syrupy melodies all throughout their 16-track effort.
"I thank God for it. It's a blessing," Juice WRLD told Billboard at Powerhouse NYC on Sunday night (Oct. 28), regarding his joint collaboration with Future going No. 2 on the Billboard 200. Prior to his explosion on the mainstream front, last year Juice salivated for a chance to align himself with the Atlanta heavyweight. In 2017, Juice spoke out on his wish to collaborate with Future through a tweet. "The day I make a collab tape with @1future is the day I made it," he wrote. Fast forward a year later, and the twosome pushed 98,000 album equivalent units in just their opening week.
"I really just like making music," he said on the black carpet."People call that 'work.' Like, 'Oh, you're going to the studio to work?' No, that's even what I do in my off day. I love recording. So I'm gonna keep doing it."
