Pop Smoke’s posthumous album, “Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon,” will debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
The late Pop Smoke is about to have the biggest debut of his short career as his posthumous album Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon will debut at # 1 on the Billboard 200 chart next week. The long-awaited album experienced some delays, but it was well worth the wait when it finally released on Friday (July 3). It seems the album was a commercial success as well, as it is projected to debut at the top of the charts, marking Pop’s first No. 1 album.
According to Hits Daily Double, Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon is expected to push between 175K-195K equivalent album units, of which 27-30k will be pure sales. The album is projected to accumulate 200 million streams.
While these numbers would be impressive for most artists, it’s even more incredible considering how recent Pop jumped on the scene. His most recent release before his tragic death in February was his mixtape, Meet The Woo 2, which moved 36K and debuted at number 7. The big difference between the two charts only shows how much people love and miss Pop more than never.
There’s also the important factor of who was involved with this album. With the executive production of 50 Cent and the likes of Future, DaBaby, Quavo, and more, Shoot For The Stars was intended to reach a wider audience. Regardless, it’s a commendable feat, and something everyone involved should be proud of.
RIP Pop Smoke. We wish you could be here to witness your success.
