At only 26 years old, the passing of Warner Bros.’s Mac Miller is another big loss for an industry that’s seen the deaths of artists across many genres since the start of the year. With his string of top five albums on the Billboard 200 list since 2011 and plenty of positive growth across the worldwide charts, it was clear that Miller’s fans would be coming out in force to remember all the songs and albums from his catalog that they cherished most. As expected, both old and new songs of his, including some from his most recent set Swimming, achieved new peaks on iTunes within a few days after his passing, including “Self Care” (#11) and “Donald Trump” (#16) in the top 20, while “Self” (#4), “Ladders” (#11), “Hurt Feelings” (#14) and “Come Back To Earth” (#15) all registered in the region on Spotify’s U.S. chart. That aforementioned album, released a few weeks back, returned to the top five on iTunes, and it remains on the all-genre chart in more than 35 territories. (Combined streams of the 13 cuts at Spotify put the effort north of 127 million plays.) “Self” (#12), “Hurt” (#25) and its parent album (#3) also continue to deliver good numbers on Apple Music’s U.S. lists. From Blue Slide Park to the top of the charts, he’ll be missed. (Images courtesy of Warner Bros. Records / credit: Christaan Felber)
