The new release date for this project will be July 3. Smoke’s manager also revealed that new Pop Smoke music will be released on June 12 though as a new single will arrive titled “Make It Rain.” There will be a surprise featured artist here that has not been named yet.
“Given recent events, we have decided to delay the release of his album out of respect for the movement. “Make It Rain” will be released this Friday, June 12th. The album will be released on July 3rd. Please join us in celebrating Pop Smoke’s legacy. 💫”
