NEW YORK (AP) — Following his death, XXXTentacion has topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart with “Sad!” and his two albums have landed in the Top 10.

Billboard reports that the rapper-singer’s song, which originally peaked at No. 7, jumps from No. 52 to No. 1 this week, supplanting Drake’s “Nice for What.”

The 20-year-old died last week after being shot in Florida.

His recent album — called “?” — jumps from No. 24 to No. 3 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. It debuted at No. 1 in March. His gold-certified 2017 debut, “17,” leaps to No. 7 from No. 60.

XXXTentacion’s music is heavily streamed on Spotify and other platforms.

A memorial for the performer will be held Wednesday at BB&T Center, a 20,000 seat arena that is home to hockey’s Florida Panthers.
