Mac Miller’s ‘Swimming’ Album Re-Enters Billboard 200 Top 10
As expected, Mac Miller's recently released album Swimming has returned to the top 10 of the Billboard 200 chart following his death earlier this month. After peaking at No. 3 following its August release, the album is now back at No. 6, selling 67,000 units over the last week.
The move was predicted by Billboard, which reported that streams of the Pittsburgh rapper's music were up 970 percent after his Sept. 7 death. During the increase in streams, Mac's top five most streamed songs became "Self Care," "Donald Trump," "Best Day Ever," "Hurt Feelings" and "Weekend" featuring Miguel.
Miller was found dead on Sept. 7 in his California home from an apparent overdose. While an official cause of death has yet to be revealed, an autopsy has been performed, and authorities await the results of the toxicology report.
Although it's uncertain if fans will get more music from Mac in the future, 2018 XXL Freshman J.I.D recently revealed that Miller, who produced under the name Larry Fisherman, helped with the post-production of his upcoming DiCaprio 2 album.
"Mac came thru and helped post produce and organize on almost every song on here, I worked on being a better writer, even outside of punchlines and shit," the rapper wrote on Instagram.
The rapper had previously assisted Miller on the song "Self Care" which is featured on Swimming. The track also includes contributions from producers DJ Dahi and ID Labs, as well as artist Dev Hynes of Blood Orange.
