A new DMCA claim around Juice WRLD’s biggest song suggests that the late rapper could be featured in an upcoming Fortnite concert.
In-game concerts have been one of Fortnite’s biggest innovations in the gaming space. Epic Games has leveraged the game’s certified pop culture connections into something totally special, transforming their Battle Royale into a complete virtual concert experience for major artists and their fans.
While there’s still no confirmation on how exactly Juice WRLD’s music is being used, a claim on Epic Games’ content appears to have leaked its inclusion.
Juice WRLD Fortnite Concert Leaked via DMCA
The leak comes courtesy of known Fortnite leaker iFireMonkey, who noted that in the claim against FN’s new “Return to Titled Towers” promo video, Lucid Dreams is designated as part of an upcoming show.
This takedown notice is allegedly registered to Grade A Productions, the record label responsible for Juice WRLD’s music. If that’s true, then it adds a whole new level of viability to the situation.
Some other links have also been claimed, including iFireMonkey’s reupload of the very same Tilted Towers video. If this were to happen, Juice’s event would join the likes of Ariana Grande’s Rift Tour, Travis Scott’s Astronomical, and Marshmello’s Showtime as the only individual artists to have shows in-game.
That’s a pretty big deal, especially considering the latter show set a player-count record at the time. We could be looking at a similar outcome this time too, as Juice WRLD’s popularity was already titanic before his untimely passing in 2019. If anything, his place in the pop culture pantheon has only grown in the years since.
That’s all the info we have for now, and will likely be all that’s available until a more formal announcement is made, but it’s certainly enough to start questioning how Epic Games plans to pull this off. Things change quickly in the gaming industry though, so take all further information with a grain of salt until further verifiable proof rolls out.
