Lucid Dreams by Juice WRLD

“Lucid Dreams” by Juice WRLD passed Kanye West to take the #1 spot with 1.8m daily streams. The song is also #8 globally and will pass 50m total streams after being released on Spotify less than 5 weeks ago. It’s well worth a listen.

Chicago rapper Juice WRLD has been releasing music since 2015, but it’s just in the past few months that he’s started to pop up on the wider hip-hop radar. With a name inspired by the 1992 2Pac film Juice and a list of influences ranging from Chief Keef to Kid Cudi to Fall Out Boy, the 19-year-old MC inked a reported $3 million deal with Interscope in March. He also linked up with Lyrical Lemonade’s Cole Bennett for a pair of music videos that have built a strong buzz online. In February, Lyrical Lemonade released the video for “All Girls Are the Same,” and recently, Juice WRLD and Bennett reunited for the “Lucid Dreams” video. Although the latter track has been out since last July, it has experienced explosive popularity over the past two months.

Lucid dreaming is a psychological phenomenon in which someone realises that they are in a dream while they’re still asleep. In some cases, they can control it. It’s closely related to sleep paralysis, where someone’s brain is active and awake but their body is still asleep. On “Lucid Dream,” Juice WRLD references both concepts as part of mourning a breakup. “I make music like a therapy session” he said in a recent interview with Lyrical Lemonade.
