Christina Grimmie’s posthumous album “All Is Vanity” landed Friday, one day shy of the first anniversary of the singer’s tragic death.

And the album immediately became an iTunes hit.

Within hours of its release, “All Is Vanity” cracked the Top 20 on the site’s album’s chart and was sitting at number seven on the pop albums chart.

Two days later, it was still number 38 overall and number eight among pop albums.

“This is what she worked on. She was so stoked in those last few months,” Marcus Grimmie, Christina’s brother, recently told Access Hollywood. “She was very adament: ‘This is the best stuff I’ve ever written.'”

It marks the second major release of Christina’s music since she was shot to death by a crazed fan following a show in Florida on June 10, 2016, at age 22.

An EP called “B Side” came out earlier this year. Three of the four songs from the EP — including the single “Invisible” — are repeated on the album.

The album’s title comes from a Bible passage Christina had tattooed on the inside of her right forearm.

Standout tracks include “Steady Love,” “Pressure,” “The Game” and “I Only Miss You When I Breathe.”

Proceeds from the album will go to the Christina Grimmie Foundation, which benefits family facing breast cancer and families affected by gun violence.
