Back on July 3, Pop Smoke’s posthumous debut studio album, ‘Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon,’ was released and had a huge first week as it debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. It was led by the single “Make It Rain” featuring Rowdy Rebel. Other huge records have been “Something Special,” “Mood Swings” featuring Lil Tjay, and “For The Night” feat. DaBaby and Lil Baby. Mood Swings and For The Night have since been certified platinum.
After the album’s No. 1 debut, it fell to No. 2 the next week behind Juice WRLD’s posthumous ‘Legends Never Die’ album. Since then, it’s been competing every week for the top spot. Now, it is officially atop the Billboard 200 again, according to Chart Data. Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon sold 67,000 units over the last week.
Smoke also becomes the first rapper to return to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 with a posthumous album in this century. 21 Savage and Metro Boomin’s ‘Savage Mode II’ is at No. 2 with 66,000 units and Legends Never Die claims the 3 spot at 45,00” units. Several remixes have also been released from Smoke’s album such as Mood Swings which included Summer Walker on it and “Iced Out Audemars” with Lil Wayne.
