Pop Smoke’s “Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon” is expected to have the top 10 debuts of the year.
Pop Smoke’s long-awaited posthumous debut album came last week. Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon didn’t disappoint either. Packed with star-studded appearances of 50 Cent, Roddy Ricch, Quavo and more, Pop’s debut album gave fans an insight into what their transition from bubbly artist to bona fide star would have been like. And if the numbers indicate something, it would only validate its star power.
Hits Daily Double reports that sales projections for Shoot For The Stars have soared since the initial prediction of 175K-195K units. Their latest updates project that the album could be 210-230k with 45-55k coming from the album’s pure sale. The project is on track to become one of the Top 10 Debuts of the Year, along with Music To Be Murdered By by Eminem and Eternal Atake by Lil Uzi Vert.
The release of the album was not without controversy. Following his initial announcement, Virgil Abloh was smashed to pieces by his cover art, who was later accused of stealing the concept. But more recently, a previously unreleased song from the project sparked debate after Pusha T allegedly dismissed Drake. Young Thug, who also appeared in the song alongside Gunna, denounced the inclusion of Pusha’s dissent towards Drake before King Push demanded that his verse be removed from the song entirely.
At least we know a luxury edition is on the way. What is your favorite song from the project? Lets roll in the comments.
