Fans really love Pop Smoke‘s posthumous effort, Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon.
According to Hits Daily Double, the star-studded album is expected to return to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 with 66,000 units when the chart is finalized on Sunday (October 18).
Released on July 2, the album debuted at No. 1 with 251,000 total album equivalent units – making for the largest posthumous opening since Michael Jackson’s This Is It shortly after his death in 2009. The 19 tracks included features from the likes of 50 Cent, Quavo, Tyga, King Combs and more, and all 19 ended up on the Hot 100 upon its debut as well. It also gave Pop his first top 10 hit with his DaBaby and Lil Baby-assisted “For The Night” reaching No. 10.
A deluxe version of the project was released three weeks later to commemorate what would have been the Brooklyn native’s 21st birthday, and came with 15 new tracks and more features including Young Thug, Gunna, Jamie Foxx, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and more.
The album has remained high on the Billboard charts since July, and at one point last month, it outsold the first week of Tekashi 6ix9ine’s sophomore effort, TattleTales. On the chart dated September 14, the colorful-haired rapper saw his album debut at No. 4 with roughly 53,000 equivalent album units, while Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon was at No. 2 in its 10th week on the charts.
