Yesterday, Pop Smoke’s posthumous debut studio album, ‘Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon’ was finally released. This was met with a lot of anticipation as it was initially supposed to be released on June 12 but was pushed back to July 3 out of respect for the protests in America that were addressing racism and police brutality. The album is led by the single “Make It Rain” feat. Rowdy Rebel, which was released on the 12th.
This project contained 19 tracks in total with more appearances by Quavo, 50 Cent, Roddy Ricch, Lil Baby, DaBaby, Tyga, snd more. It was executive produced by 50 and Smoke’s 2019 hit single “Dior” was also included as a bonus track. Fans realized that the “Paranoia” song feat. Pusha T, Gunna & Young Thug was missing as well but Smoke‘s manager, Steven Victor, said that this is being finalized. Some fan-favorites at the moment are “West Coast S*it” feat. Tyga & Quavo, “Yea Yea,” and “For The Night” feat. DaBaby & Lil Baby.
Fans have approved of Smoke’s debut album heavily and it may take over Lil Baby’s ‘My Turn’ album’s No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart. According to Chart Data, it’s on track to sell 175-195k units in its first week. My Turn just became the longest running No. 1 album of 2020 at five weeks. It’ll be interesting to see if the late Brooklyn rapper can break this record as well after creating an impressive debut album.
