“Changes” joins other staples from the late Florida rapper’s discography such as “SAD,” “Jocelyn Flores” and “Moonlight” to cross the billion-stream mark on Spotify. He is reportedly the first artist to ever notch four songs with over a billion streams in Spotify history.
“Changes” arrived on March 2, 2018 alongside “SAD!” as a two-pack of singles ahead of the release of X’s ? album. The sorrowful tune is produced by frequent collaborator John Cunningham and features background vocals by PnB Rock. “Changes” was certified 3x-platinum by the RIAA in September 2020.
XXXTENTACION’s legacy lives on as he was honored with a mural at Rolling Loud Miami alongside other fallen rappers gone far too soon such as Pop Smoke, Nipsey Hussle, Lil Peep and Juice WRLD.
