XXXTentacion’s ‘17’ Album Re-Enters Billboard 200 Top 10
Thanks to a collection of 17 merchandise for the album's one-year anniversary on Aug. 25, XXXTentacion's debut offering is back in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 chart.
The album was already in the top 40 of the chart, sitting at No. 25, but the merch collection of clothing, iPhone cases, vinyl and more that came bundled with 17 pushed the late rapper's debut record to the No. 8 spot, jumping a fitting 17 spots.
The 17 album originally debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard chart last year, selling 87,000 album-equivalent units. Following his June death, 17 re-entered the Billboard 200, making its way to No. 7 with 55,000 units sold during the week.
Released on Aug. 25, 2017, 17 was certified platinum on Aug. 15 of this year, nearly two month's after X's murder in Florida. The LP became the rapper's second album to reach platinum status along with his sophomore record, ?. The 11-track debut album includes the songs "Jocelyn Flores," "Revenge" and "Fuck Love" featuring Trippie Redd.
Fans can also expect to hear more music from the slain rapper, as a number of artists have unreleased collaborations with X. Last week, Sauce Walka dropped the track "Voss," which features an appearance from XXXTentacion. Tory Lanez also claimed X would be appearing on his upcoming album, Love Me Now.
There's also solo music on the way from X. According to Empire CEO Ghazi Shami, the rapper left behind "a significant amount of material," although the music isn't allowed to be released until October.
