Marshmello has revealed that he and the late Juice WRLD collaborated on “8 or 9 songs” that fans have yet to hear.
The electronic music DJ – who also worked with Juice WRLD on two tracks, “Come & Go” and “Hate the Other Side,” that appeared in the recently released posthumous album Legends Never Die – shed light upon his and Juice’s additional music in a tweet. Responding to a fan who was inquiring about the depth of the Marshmello-Juice WRLD library, the 28-year-old DJ simply stated: “8 or 9 songs left.”
Many social media users are voicing their desire to listen to the collaborative songs.
“the juice songs need to stop being held from us, DROPPPP,” urged one enthusiastic individual.
“Release them. It’s an order, not request,” implored another eager fan.
At the time of this writing, neither Marshmello nor Juice WRLD’s team had specified when fans can expect to enjoy the songs or, more broadly, a second posthumous Juice album. Back in January, sources revealed that the Chicago, Illinois-born artist had left behind an expansive body of work comprising somewhere around 2,000 tracks. To be sure, unauthorized editions of 26 of the rapper’s songs made their way onto the internet shortly after his passing, though they were quickly removed.
If the present success of Legends Never Die is any indication, loyal fans of Juice WLRD (whose full name was Jarad Anthony Higgins) seem likely to rally around his future posthumous releases. Featuring Trippie Redd, Halsey, Marshmello, and several other well-known artists, the 21-track album has topped the charts in the U.S. and an abundance of other nations. Similarly, critics and fans have offered generally positive assessments of the roughly 55-minute-long project.
In May, Higgins’ longtime girlfriend, Ally, relayed that the rapper had been working on an album entitled The Outsiders, but Guwac, an associate of Juice, subsequently stated that the title was incorrect (while declining to disclose its actual name). Despite this relative confusion and the lack of a formal announcement from Juice’s team and label, it’s all but certain that a second posthumous Juice WRLD album is currently being planned.
On Monday, we reported that the long-running copyright infringement lawsuit – filed in October 2019 – between Juice WRLD and Yellowcard had drawn to a close, as the emo-punk band opted to drop their legal complaint. Yellowcard’s attorney in the case, Richard Busch, told Digital Music News that the group was “really uncomfortable” to proceed with the matter against Higgins’ grieving mother and representative. However, it bears mentioning that the suit can be reinitiated at any point down the line.
