“Death Race for Love” is an Album by the American rapper Jarad Higgins, known by his stage name, juice WRLD. “Death Race for Love” was released on March 8, 2019, by Grade A and Interscope Records.

The 20-year-old rapper from Chicago has released two albums in 2018 and collaborated on the “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” which had multiple artists in it. “Death Race for Love” is the third album that he has released and the first album that he released in 2019.

There were 43,000 album sales out of the 165,000 album units. “Death Race for Love” is the second-most streamed album in a week after Ariana Grande’s “Thank U, Next” album.

He thanked his supporters through a tweet by saying, “Thank God for this I love every single last one of my fans and supporters.”

Juice WRLD has been on the Billboard 200 with a couple of albums in 2018. His album “WRLD on Drugs,” which had Future featured was number 2 on the Billboard 200. His other album “Goodbye & Good Riddance” became number 8 on the Billboard 200.

For over 40 weeks his song “Lucid Dreams” was on Billboards from his album “Goodbye & Good Riddance.”

The emo-rap star has 22 songs in his album, which is over 72 minutes long. Other emo-rappers include: Lil Peep (passed away), XXXTentaction (passed away) and Lil Uzi Vert (retired), which means that juice WRLD is the current face of emo-rap. The album is about drugs and heartbreaks.

The album opener “Empty,” juice WRLD talks about how he uses drugs to conceal his problems. “I feel so goddamn empty,” this line from “Empty” shows how juice WRLD is handling his breakup, which isn’t great.

In the album, he never answers who broke his heart, which makes people curious, which can leave the listener confused.

In “Death Race for Love,” juice WRLD doesn’t know how to keep his emotions in check and his emotions are all over the place.

In one of his tweets, he said, “I freestyled my whole album by myself,” which answers the rumors about him going to the studio and freestyling. Juice WRLD doesn’t write his lyrics at first, which many artists do.
