Last week, Pop Smoke’s second posthumous studio album, “Faith,” was released. That came a little over a year after his posthumous debut album, “Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon,” was released. Thea album ended up being titled “Faith,” the week of its release.
Faith contained 20 tracks, with features from Pusha T, Kanye West, Takeoff, Dua Lipa, Pharrell, Future, and more. The deluxe edition ended up being released on the night of what would’ve been his 22nd birthday, on July 20. Four additional tracks were included, which also had a G Herbo feature.
Today, Faith officially became the number one album in the US, on the Billboard 200 chart. According to Chart Data, 88,000 units were sold in its first week, with 4,000 being pure sales. 113.34 million on-demand stream streams were also accumulated.
This is Smoke’s second consecutive posthumous number one album, and made even more history in the process. He is now the first artist in history to posthumously debut his first two studio albums at the top spot on the Billboard 200. This was expected to happen, as Smoke remains one of the hottest new artists out, despite not being with us anymore.
