Before April 2, his songs were streamed between 700,000 and 1 million times daily. Between April 3 and 8, they rose up to 4 million per day.

In music sales, Billboard also quoted the report as revealing that DMX’s collected songs and studio albums sold up to 101,000 copies between April 9 and 11 – up 1,036 percent compared to the 9,000 sold between April 6 and 8.
