In the wake of Mac Miller’s unexpected passing at the age of 26 last Friday (Sept. 7), fans and his musical contemporaries have been paying their respects. Whether its celebrating his catalogue of tunes or remembering his personality and demeanor, it was clear that Mac was one of a kind.
It was reported that his music streams increased by nearly 1000 percent, and now, there’s a good chance seven of his projects will appear on the Billboard 200 Albums chart next week. According to Billboard, Miller’s 2011 mixtape Best Day Ever and 2012’s Macadelic may make their chart debuts, while his final album Swimming could possibly reach the top five. The top 10 albums of next week’s chart will be unveiled on Sunday, Sept. 16.
“His 2015 studio effort GO:OD AM, which debuted and peaked at No. 4, might jump back onto the list in the top 40 with around 10,000 to 15,000 units (up from 1,000),” wrote the site. “The former No. 1, 2011’s Blue Slide Park, is on track to re-enter the list in the top 40 with 10,000-plus units (rising from 1,000).”
2016’s The Divine Feminine could tally 10,000 units and make its way back into the top 40, while 2013’s Watching Movies With The Sound Off could return to the top 50.
Kendrick Lamar, Chance The Rapper, J. Cole and more rappers have paid tribute to the Pittsburgh-bred spitter. Lamar remembered Miller as a positive force who always had a smile on his face.
