"Lucid Dreams" (alternatively "Lucid Dreams (Forget Me)")[2] is a song by American rapper Juice Wrld. It was officially released by Grade A Productions and Interscope Records on May 4, 2018, after previously being released on SoundCloud in June 2017. The song was produced by Nick Mira and debuted at number 74 on the Billboard Hot 100,[3] peaking at number two on the chart.[4] The song has also amassed more than 1.6 billion streams on Spotify, being one of the most streamed songs on the platform. A remix featuring fellow rapper Lil Uzi Vert was recorded in 2018 but remained unreleased due to sample clearance issues. The remix leaked online in May 2021 after fans pooled together $12,000 to purchase the song from leakers.[5] On May 28, 2021, the remix was officially released alongside a re-release of Goodbye & Good Riddance that commemorates the album's third anniversary.[6]

In a June 2018 interview with Lyrical Lemonade, Juice Wrld stated the song was made to be a "therapy session" during a period of relationship problems he was encountering.[7]

"Lucid Dreams" was initially released on SoundCloud on June 15, 2017, alongside the EP JuiceWrld 9 9 9.[8] It eventually accumulated 2.5 million plays, leading to an official release as a single on May 4, 2018.[9][10]

In November 2018, producer Nick Mira revealed that Sting owned 85% of the rights to "Lucid Dreams," which features an interpolation of his 1993 hit "Shape of My Heart".[11]

In October 2019, members of the now defunct pop punk band Yellowcard sued Juice Wrld for $15 million, claiming that "Lucid Dreams" copied the melody of their song "Holly Wood Died".[12] Following Juice Wrld's death on December 8, 2019, the band extended a "deadline for defendants to respond to the lawsuits" into February 2020. Yellowcard's law firm King & Fallow issued a statement disputing the $15 million figure in the lawsuit as "falsely reported" with the final figure yet to be determined. While expressing sympathies for Juice Wrld's sudden death, the firm said the action would be pursued despite "incredible mixed emotions" from the band and firm.[13]
