BackgroundEdit

After the release of "Fine China", Wrld on Drugs was revealed as a joint project by both Wrld and Future on their social media accounts.[6] The project consists of sixteen songs. A handwritten track list featuring scribbling on a whiteboard was published by both the artists with the caption "Pluto x Juice #WRLDONDRUGS", which refers to Future as Pluto, a reference to Future's debut album Pluto.[7] Future also revealed he and Wrld have worked in the studio on the project, urging the latter to "make the cover artwork, pick the songs and put it out ASAP." He stated "Me & JuiceWorlddd in the studio rite now...we jus did enough heat to drop a tape this week."[8] On the whiteboard, the phrases "whatever you addicted too" and "$$$ is a drug?" were written.[9]

The Source has linked the album's title to the passing of rapper Mac Miller, stating "The title itself is interesting and speaks to the current state of Hip-Hop. With the recent drug-related passing of Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller, one can wonder whether the project will be open about drug usage or mental illness in the world's biggest genre."[10] HotNewHipHop suggested the drug naming in the song titles suggest there could exist a high number of drug references in the mixtape.[11][12]

SinglesEdit

"Fine China" was released as a single on October 15, 2018.[13][14][15] "Fine China" was recorded in July during a studio session between Wrld and Future and its making-of has been published by the rappers on their Instagram pages.[16] They both visited the desert to shoot a music video for the album's second single, "No Issues".[17][18]

Commercial performanceEdit

Wrld on Drugs debuted at number two on the US Billboard 200 behind A Star Is Born by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, with 98,000 album-equivalent units, which included 8,000 pure album sales.[19] It serves as Future's tenth top-ten album in the United States, and Juice Wrld's second.[19] The album dropped to the number eight in its second week, earning an additional 45,000 album-equivalent units.[20]
