Pop Smoke jumped to No. 1 spot on the Billboard Artist 100 chart to become the top musical act in the U.S. for the first time. The late rapper becomes the sixth act to posthumously lead the chart.
Smoke’s jump from 73rd position to the top spot on Artist 100 chart was fueled by his debut album, Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon, which bowed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon earned the late rapper his first chart topper as the album earned 251,000 equivalent units in the week ending July 9, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
The album, which dropped on July 3 via Victor Victor Worldwide/Republic Records, is the first posthumous No. 1 since XXXTentacion‘s Skins opened atop the chart in December 2018.
