A new Pop Smoke album is on the way.
Victor Victor Worldwide and Republic Records announced the album with a trailer featuring footage of the 20-year-old before his death in February of last year. “I always knew I was going to be something great,” Pop Smoke, the late Brooklyn rapper says. The as-yet-untitled 17-track set is now available for pre-order.
The new album will follow the rapper’s first posthumous release, Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon, which dropped five short months after his untimely death. The album sold over 7 million units worldwide. It charted in the top five on the Billboard 200 for 34 weeks, becoming only the fourth album this century to spend that many weeks in the top five. It is also the longest-running album on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart since 1990.
Pop Smoke collaborated on the Migos and Polo G’s new albums. In addition, his music appeared on the soundtracks for Eddie Huang’s Boogie, which he also starred in, and F9. The Woo returns on July 16.
