Pop Smoke’s debut studio album ‘Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon’ was posthumously released in July 2020 and featured the likes of Quavo, DaBaby and Future.
A new video has been shared for Pop Smoke‘s track ‘What You Know Bout Love’, taken from his debut studio album Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon.
The Oliver Cannon-directed visual features never-before-seen footage of the late Brooklyn rap star, who was killed back in February at the age of 20.
The American drill artist was shot during a home invasion at his house in Hollywood Hills.
The ‘What You Know Bout Love’ video features footage of Pop Smoke recording the track itself, as well as video of him out and about in London and around the world while on tour.
It opens with a video of Smoke giving thanks to his fans and talking about how much he appreciates them, and clips from his and his fans’ TikTok accounts are weaved into the music video. An important message from the artist closes out the visual: “I don’t know who needs to hear this bro, but don’t let nobody ever tell you you can’t do nothing…Whatever you wanna do, just fucking do it. Don’t look back.”
Pop Smoke was named as SoundCloud’s most-streamed artist of 2020 last week, saying that Smoke was “beloved by the SoundCloud community and they continue to show it.”
The platform also revealed that his music was streamed over 191,500,188 times in 2020 alone.
His track 'Dior' is currently running for Best Rap Performance at the 2021 Grammy Awards.
Smoke’s manager Steven Victor claims that yet more posthumous releases are in the pipeline, including “a project Pop, 808 Melo, AXL Beats and Rico Beats were working on”.
A deluxe version of Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon, which added 15 new tracks, then arrived in July.
The rapper will also make his posthumous film debut in the upcoming film Boogie, directed by Fresh Off The Boat author Eddie Huang, it has been confirmed.
