The deluxe edition Pop Smoke’s posthumous album, “Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon,” is set to drop next week, and will include 15 new tracks.
It’s only been two weeks since we were blessed with the late Pop Smoke‘s posthumous album, Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon, but a deluxe edition with 15 new tracks is already on the way. On Friday (July 17th), Spotify’s Rap Car shared a teaser on Instagram for the deluxe version the album, compiled old footage Pop recording in the studio and performing on stage. At the end the clip, “July 20” appears on the screen followed by the Spotify logo, which means this release could be exclusive through the streaming service. “Pop Smoke’s deluxe album with 15 new tracks,” the caption reads. “Who you wanna see featured?”
It’s no coincidence that the release date coincides with what would have been Pop’s 21st birthday. Before the confirmation about the deluxe album release date, 50 Cent took to Instagram to announce that the music video for Pop’s song, “The Woo,” featuring himself and Roddy Ricch, would be dropping on Monday, July 20th, as well. “You know da Vibes,” Fif wrote on a teaser for the visuals, which include shots him and Roddy from present day as well as throwback footage Pop. “Monday is Pops birthday so Video Monday.”
Prior to these announcements, Pop’s manager, Steven Victor posted a screenshot his phone call with Fif in which they had discussed the release the deluxe album and video. “Tell @50cent to approve the video and the mix for the deluxe, the 20th is 5 days away,” Steven wrote. Fif had actually responded, indicating that he was waiting on Gucci Mane‘s contribution, but it looks like the post has been deleted. “The deluxe is coming stop rushing,” Fif wrote, per Complex. “Gwuapo where TF is the verse. I will leave your ass f the project let’s work get it done.”
