Pop Smoke is keeping the Faith.
The late Brooklyn rapper’s second posthumous album is set to arrive this Friday, July 16. After announcing a release date last month, his manager has revealed the official title—Faith.
“Pop Smoke ‘FAITH’ July 16 2021,” tweeted Steven Victor, who also revealed the black-and-white cover art.

The title was first spotted in the caption of an Instagram post from Pop Smoke’s mother, Audrey Jackson, in March 2020, just one month after Pop Smoke was fatally shot during a home invasion robbery in the Hollywood Hills.
Details remain scarce, but the album may include an appearance from Dua Lipa. The pop star teased a potential collaboration by sharing a throwback video of Pop Smoke listening to her hit “One Kiss.”
“YOU CAN’T SAY POP WITHOUT SMOKE – 16 JULY,” she captioned the clip.

Faith arrives one year after the release of Pop Smoke’s first posthumous album Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and has moved over 7 million units worldwide.
