Last week, Pop Smoke released his second posthumous album, “Faith.” This came a little over a year after the release of his posthumous debut album, “Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon.” Faith contained 20 tracks, with impressive collabs with Kanye West, Pusha T, Future, Takeoff, Dua Lipa, Pharrell, and more.
Faith was projected to become Pop’s second straight number one album and now, that is official. According to Chart Data, it is number one in the US on the Billboard 200 chart, with 91,000 units sold in its first week. Second place goes to “Sob Rock” album with 87,000 units, and third is occupied by Olivia Rodirgo’s “SOUR” album, with 77,000 units.
On July 20, it would’ve been Pop’s 22nd birthday. That night, the deluxe edition for Faith was released, which contained four additional tracks, which included a G Herbo collaboration. Pop’s manager, Steven Victor, hinted at more songs on a deluxe edition coming on July 30 as well.
Pop continues to be one of the biggest stars in the industry, even posthumously. This past March, he also starred in the Eddie Huang basketball-directed film, “Boogie.” “Pop Smoke Day” is also celebrated in his hometown of Brooklyn annually, as of 2020.
