After social media-bending hoopla over a botched Virgil Abloh design promised improvements, Pop Smoke fans still weren’t satisfied when the Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon cover art hit DSPs on Friday (July 3).

The final image was devoid of Pop Smoke’s likeness and instead, featured a metallic rose atop an all-black backdrop with the parental advisory sticker placed neatly at the bottom.

As fans combed through the intro “Bad Bitch From Tokyo,” they didn’t hesitate to flood Twitter with their disdain for the plain cover art, prompting several trending topics related to the late artist’s album rollout to arise.

50 Cent, who shared several templates of potential Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon cover arts ahead of the release date, instructed fans to support the project on his Instagram.

Despite the negative approval rating for the aesthetic, fans didn’t judge the book of music for its cover and leaned towards tracks like “Aim For The Moon” (with Quavo), “The Woo” (featuring 50 and Roddy Ricch) and “Snitching” (co-starring Future and Quavo once again) as the reigning favorites.
