Pop Smoke's Debut Album Breaks Eminem's Record for Most Weeks at No. 1 on Rap Albums Billboard Chart

Pop Smoke's debut album Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon is now the Billboard Top Rap Albums chart’s longest-running No. 1 record.


The posthumous project has notched 20 weeks on top of the chart since its release in July 2020. This pushes him ahead of the previous record-holder, Eminem, whose Recovery spent 19 weeks reigning over the Top Rap Albums from 2010-11.


Along with his Top Rap Albums feat, Pop Smoke is inching toward the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums crown. Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon has currently spent more weeks at No. 1 on that chart than any album since 1990. He’s also surpassed Michael Jackson’s iconic Bad and Prince’s legendary Purple Rain. Pop now only trails MC Hammer’s Please Hammer, Don’t Hurt Em, which strung together the most weeks back in 1990.
