Late New York rapper Pop Smoke‘s Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon album will have no competition atop the sales chart. The rap artist’s posthumous release is currently en route to demolish any and all contenders with its first-week projections.
Pop x No. 1
Based on early estimates, Smoke’s team will enjoy a chart-topping debut release. The LP is set to sell well over 200,000 copies in just 7 days.
The late PopSmoke will open with one of the 10 biggest debuts thus far this year. His previous release, Meet The Woo 2, may move back into the Top 15; like the new set, that release came out on Steven Victor‘s Victor Victor imprint via Republic. (Hits Daily Double)
This past weekend, rap star 50 Cent hit up Instagram to show the initial estimates for how much Smoke’s LP should sell. Barring any last-minute changes, Pop will earn his first-ever chart-topping debut.
