Pop The Charts
Smoke’s must-hear record did much more than win fans over. It also landed on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
“Dior” is Pop Smoke’s most popular solo song to date. It is part of both of Pop’s mixtapes, Meet the Woo and Meet the Woo 2. It debuted and peaked at #30 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it Pop’s highest-charting song. (Genius)
Wait, There’s More
During his short rap career stint, Pop had multiple records land on the charts. He mostly dominated Billboard’s hip-hop charts.
Of all the Billboard charts Pop Smoke appeared on during his lifetime, he racked up the most hits on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs tally, as he made it to the list with three different tunes. His highest-ranking of the bunch, “Gatti,” which was fronted by the Travis Scott-led JackBoys, broke into the top 40 and peaked at No. 33. His own “Welcome to the Party” with Minaj and “Dior” barely made it on, reaching Nos. 48 and 49, respectively, on the 50-slot chart. (Forbes)
Before You Go
Recently, rap star 50 Cent hinted at plans to release a posthumous Pop Smoke album this year. He also revealed his intent on securing Texas hip-hop artist Post Malone on the LP.
“Set for release in May. Oh yeah, Post Malone I’m gonna hit ya phone, I need you on this. … Trust my judgement, I know what I’m doing.”
