Why Pop Smoke & Juice WRLD’s Posthumous Albums Have Connected With Fans

With the big No. 1 arrival of the late Pop Smoke’s album Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon on the Billboard 200 chart, and with Juice WRLD’s own posthumous release Legends Never Die likely to make a splash high on the tally next week, it’s clear that both albums are resonating with fans in big way.

On the latest Billboard Pop Shop Podcast (listen below), the team takes a closer look at these two albums, why the two posthumous projects have connected with fans and dive into a discussion about the complications and concerns involved with releasing albums by artists who are no longer with us.

In addition, Pop Shop hosts Jason and Keith chat about big chart news from the world of Broadway, as the Hamilton: An American Musical cast album surges to No. 2 on the Billboard 200. The pair also review the sustained popularity of The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights,” and how the former No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 spends its 17th straight week locked in the top five of the chart.
