XXXTentacion has broken Taylor Swift’s one-day streaming record on Spotify following his death.
The 20-year-old rapper was shot and killed in Florida on Monday. According to reports, he was shot by two men in a dark SUV as he left a motorcycle shop in Fort Lauderdale. He was pronounced dead after being taken to the hospital.
XXXTentacion – whose real name was Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy – broke Swift’s record as streams of his track ‘SAD!’ reached 10.4 million in 24 hours. Swift’s 2017 comeback track ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ previously held the record with 10.1 million.
Earlier this year, Spotify removed ‘SAD!’ from promoted playlists as part of its new “hateful conduct” policy.
