In 2020, his song "Diva" featuring Lil Tecca was also uploaded on Lyrical Lemonade and quickly amassed more than 20 million views. He next went viral with his song named after TikTok star Addison Rae.
On June 12, 2020, Laroi released his highly anticipated collaboration with the late Juice Wrld, titled "Go". It became his first charting single on the US Billboard Hot 100, debuting at number 52.
