Pop Smoke’s “Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon” Sales Projections Increase

Published

on

Pop Smoke’s anticipated posthumous debut album arrived last week. Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon didn’t disappoint, either. Stacked with star-studded appearances from 50 Cent, Roddy Ricch, Quavo, and more, Pop’s debut album gave fans a glimpse of what would’ve been his transition from bubbling artist to bonafide star. And if numbers indicate anything, it would only validate his star power.

Hits Daily Double reports that the sales projections for Shoot For The Stars have spiked from the initial prediction of 175K-195K units. Their latest update projects that the album could be 210-230k with 45-55k coming from pure album sales. The project is on pace to be one of the top 10 biggest debuts of the year, along with Eminem’s Music To Be Murdered By and Lil Uzi Vert’s Eternal Atake.



The release of the album hasn’t gone without controversy. Upon its initial announcement, Virgil Abloh got torn to shreds for his cover art which he was later accused of stealing the concept for. But more recently, an unreleased song off of the project sparked debate after Pusha T allegedly dissed Drake. Young Thug, who was also featured on the song alongside Gunna, denounced the inclusion of Pusha’s diss towards Drake before King Push demanded that his verse is removed from the song altogether.

YoungBoy Never Broke Again Is Ready To Drop New Music

Published

on

As YoungBoy Never Broke Again tends to occupy the headlines through antics and romantic mishaps gone awry, it’s all too easy to forget that he’s a talented artist with a firm foothold on the digital streaming market; lest we forget, the young Baton Rouge rhymer is among YouTube’s dominant streamers, at least where the numbers are concerned.



Now, it would appear he’s gearing up to stage a triumphant return, teasing his first new music since 38 Baby 2, a mixtape that came with a caveat: “After Friday I’ll never release a song/album again until I’m in a better situation.” Luckily for fans of the dynamic young rapper, YoungBoy appears to have found the inner peace he was seeking, taking to Twitter to tease some promising intentions. “Should I drop ??” he asks, opening the floor to his fans to flood his mentions with compliments and well-wishes.

It’s unclear as to whether YoungBoy is ready to drop off another studio album, which would be his second release following 2018’s acclaimed Until Death Call My Name. We can only hope so, as YoungBoy seems to raise the bar for his studio music; there are many who believe his debut to be his strongest material thus far, and it would be interesting to see NBA pick up where it left off. What do you think — are you still on board for YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s new music?

Reginae Drops A Few Bars On Song She Recorded With Her Friends

Published

on

The apple doesn’t fall from the tree. Reginae Carter hasn’t expressed an active desire to become a rap star like her father Lil Wayne, but she’s surely had more experience in the booth than most. We can only imagine how many Weezy tracks Reginae Carter watched her father record, and with such an accomplished rapper as her dad, it only makes sense that she would have laid down a few bars of her own.

Recently, a clip of Regaine riding around in her car listening to her own song made its way to the internet. The public began to speculate whether or not Reginae was looking forward to a music career, and after The Shade Room reposted the clip, the blog’s followers had quite a bit to say. The critics swooped in heavily, so Reginae had to stop by the comment section to set a few things straight.

“I recorded this two years ago guys playing around with my friends,” Reginae commented. “But people in the comments know more than me so GO AWFFFF.” She looked like she was having a good time, so it didn’t matter much what anyone had to say. Check out the clip below.

Jaden Smith Announces “Cool Tape Volume 3” Project: “It’s Completing The Trilogy”

Published

on

His latest single is already heating up streaming services as Jaden Smith announces he has a new project on the horizon. The middle Smith child continues his music rise with “Cabin Fever,” and alternative-indie offering he dropped off on Friday (July 24). The 22-year-old artist chatted with MTV’s Fresh Out Live about his new single and shared that he’s readying a new album titled Cool Tape Volume 3.

“It’s completing the trilogy of the Cool Tape Volume 3’s and then it’s also kinda completing the trilogies of Syre and Erys at the same time. So it’s like, putting an end to two eras at once so that I can then go off into the future and into the next thing after that.” Jaden also shared how his dating life during quarantine inspired his latest single “Cabin Fever,” a track where he talks about getting a tad stir-crazy ad desiring to grab his love interest and take off.

 “I kinda, you know, pulled this from some real-life experiences and also kinda dreamed it up in my head a little bit, cause I like to create stories around my music,” he said. “That’s kinda what the story of it is, and I’m really excited about it. I’m hoping that people can relate to it as well with having that person that you wanna see and then feeling like the whole world is stopping you from seeing them…literally.”
