Pop Smoke‘s music is still ringing off, months after his death, and even finding new moments to soundtrack. As “Dior” became an anthem for the kids in New York City protesting against systemic oppression, racial injustice, and police brutality, his team prepares to release his first posthumous album, Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon, which drops at the top of next month.
Fresh off of the release of “Make It Rain” ft. Rowdy Rebel and ahead of the album’s release, his estate has signed a new worldwide publishing deal with Warner Chappell Music. The deal will cover Pop’s previous releases, including “Welcome To The Party” as well as the forthcoming album,
Ryan Press, the president of A&R at Warner Chappell Music, said that he witnessed Pop’s rise to stardom and wanted to make sure that he was able to support Pop’s family and team.
