“734” is a brand new track from Juice WRLD’s 2021 album ‘Goodbye & Good Riddance (Anniversary Edition).’ It is one of the two new tracks on this album which is a re-release of Juice’s debut breakout album ‘Goodbye & Good Riddance’ from 2018. ‘734’ is an area code in the US representing southeast Michigan, where Juice’s ex-girlfriend is from.
On December 8, 2019, Juice WRLD passed away, at the age of 21, due to a seizure induced by acute oxycodone and codeine intoxication. He was dating model Ally Lotti at the time. A lot of Juice’s music at the time was dedicated to their love.
However, on “734,” Juice WRLD goes further back. The southeast Michigan area code reference is for Juice’s ex-girlfriend at the time, Alexia Smith. The song was most likely recorded before their relationship ended in late 2018.

“734” Lyrics Meaning and Song Review
In the chorus of the song, we hear Juice WRLD slowly contemplating his relationship with the girl he is with. He feels as if though the end is near for them.
Her love’s dead, think it needs a halo
Juice hears his friends advising him to let her go. But he is not sure if that’s the best course of action now. He does not want to let go of this girl from ‘734.’
In the first verse of the song, Juice sings how he patiently waits for time to heal his wounds. The relationship is crumbling down and it hurts like hell. When love hurts, there is no medicine that can cure this pain. So you resort to pills. He feels claustrophobic. He feels his life leaving his body!
In the second verse of the song, Juice WRLD adds on how it hurts him to see his love walk away. He admits that he is codependent. But he didn’t mind it. Maybe she did.
Juice WRLD can see the dark clouds gathering from a mile away. These clouds disappeared when she came into his life, and now that she is almost over the horizon, the clouds seem to loom.
Juice WRLD professes his love to this girl from ‘734’ over and over again. He just does not want to deal with the darkness that he dealt with before. He is scared for himself.
