Pop Smoke’s legacy lives on.

The late rapper’s posthumous debut, Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon, has spent the most weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart since M.C. Hammer’s Please Hammer, Don’t Hurt Em in 1990.

With 18 weeks in charge, Shoot for the Stars passes Eminem’s Recovery, which topped the chart for 16 weeks, and is currently tied with Michael Jackson’s Bad for the title. Next week, the album could tie Prince’s Purple Rain, while the current leader is Jackson’s Thriller at 37 weeks.

Additionally, Shoot for the Stars is currently No. 1 on the Top Rap Albums chart and sits at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. The album, which was released in July 2020, has produced three platinum songs (“Hello,” “Got It On Me,” and “Something Special”), three 2x platinum songs (“Mood Swings,” “The Woo,” and “What You Know About Love”), one 3x platinum (“Dior”), and the 4x platinum “For the Night.”

Pop Smoke, who was nominated for a Grammy for Best Rap Performance (“Dior”), can be seen making his acting debut in Eddie Huang’s film Boogie. The soundtrack also includes two new songs from Pop, “AP” and “No Cap (Remix).”
