XXXTentacion may be gone, but he is not forgotten.

The rapper passed away in June at the age of 20 after being fatally shot while leaving a motorcycle dealership in Broward County.

Following his death, his third studio album, Skins, was released featuring 10 tracks — one of which includes Kanye West.

The posthumous album sold 132,000 album units during its first week of release and has now achieved an important chart feat.

Billboard has confirmed that Skins has now hit the top of its Billboard 200 chart, becoming the first album to do so posthumously since The Very Best of Prince re-entered the charts.

With Skins debuting at no. 1, it marks XXXTentacion’s second no. 1 following ? which came out in March 2018.
