Pop Smoke’s ‘Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon’ Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard 200


Pop Smoke’s posthumous album “Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon” debuts atop the Billboard 200. The late Brooklyn MC’s debut posthumous album moved 251,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in its first week, of which 59,000 are in album sales.

Pop’s success atop the charting makes him the first rapper to posthumously debut at No. 1 with his debut album. The album is equally the first posthumous album to reach No. 1 since XXXTentacion’s Skins opened atop the chart in December 2018.

50 Cent was among the key contributors to the album’s success as he co-executive produced the album. He took to social media to celebrate the news. “BROOKLYN STAND UP #1 She Want To Fuck Wit The πŸ’«Woo,” 50 wrote.

Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon follows 2019’s Meet the Woo, and this year’s Meet the Woo 2. Meanwhile, the latter debuted and peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 in February, just weeks before the 20-year-old rapper was shot and killed in a home invasion.

At the No. 2 of this week’s charting is the original Broadway cast recording of Hamilton: An American Musical, which rises from 14-2 with 102,000 equivalent album units following the theatrical release of Hamilton on Disney+.

Elsewhere in the top 10, Lil Baby’s My Turn drops 1-3 with 62,000 equivalent album units, while DaBaby’s Blame It On Baby drops to No. 4 with 36,000 units.

Hollywood’s Bleeding from Post Malone falls 4-5 with 36,000 units, The Weekend’s After Hours slips 5-6 (29,000), and Lil Uzi Vert’s Eternal Atake drops 8-9 with 27,000 units. In the No. 10 place is Lil Durk’s Just Cause Y’all Waited 2 with 27,000 units.
