The rapper released his second album in March, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and included the hits “Sad!” and “Changes.” Recently, XXXTentacion was embroiled in a controversy when his music was removed from Spotify as part of a new policy. This stemmed from his 2016 arrest on various charges that includes “witness tampering and aggravated battery of a pregnant woman,” according to the New York Times.
