2022 could be one of the remarkable years for $uicideBoy$. According to HITS MAGAZINE, the hip-hop duo was named the 27th most-streamed artist of the year across all genres with 1.9 billion total streams as of October 18.
The group, which consists of cousins Ruby da Cherry and Scrim, beat the likes of Jack Harlow, Tyler the Creator and Travis Scott (II) among others on the list. The success arrived after they dropped their third studio album, "Sing Me a Lullaby, My Sweet Temptation", in July.
Aside from debuting at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Rap Albums chart, the 13-track set landed at No. 2 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and No. 7 on the all-genre Billboard 200. The project had been streamed over 100 million times in the first week of its release, marking the group's first No. 1 on the Rap Albums chart.
One of its singles, "Matte Black", also reached the summit of Spotify's U.S. Top Groups of 2022 playlist. It knocked out "Butter" by BTS (Bangtan Boys), "Bones" by Imagine Dragons, "Sweater Weather" byThe Neighbourhood" and "Let It Be - Remastered 2009" by The Beatles.
$uicideBoy$ followed it up with "DirtiestNastiest$uicide", a third and final addition to their collaborative EP with Germ. They first announced the EP on November 27 and officially dropped it on December 16.
Before closing out 2022, $uicideBoy$ announced that they will play 15 dates in Europe next year as a part of their "Grey Day Tour". They will greet fans in 9 countries in total.
