Pop Smoke makes a historical debut as Shoot For the Stars Aim For The Moon lands at No. 1 on this week’s Billboard 200, accumulating a total of 251,000 equivalent album units, including 190,000 streaming equivalent album units, 59,000 in album sales and 3,000 in track equivalent album units. This makes the late rapper the first and only hip-hop artist in history to posthumously open at No. 1 with a debut studio album and is one of four hip-hop names with posthumous chart-toppers alongside 2Pac, The Notorious B.I.G. and XXXTentacion.

At No. 2 is the original Broadway cast recording of Hamilton: An American Musical, followed by Lil Baby and DaBaby at Nos. 3 and 4. Comprising the bottom half of this week’s top 10 are Post Malone, The Weeknd and Harry Styles at Nos. 5, 6 and 7 respectively, with Polo G, Lil Uzi Vert and Lil Durk closing out at Nos. 8, 9 and 10.
