Pop Smoke’s acting debut in Boogie is a bittersweet moment with him not being here to witness the monumental achievement. On Tuesday (March 16), Pop’s estate delivered the visual to “AP,” which served as the lead single for the Boogie soundtrack.
The visual uses clips of Pop Smoke acting in the Eddie Huang-directed Boogie where he plays the film’s antagonist named Monk who stars at a rival high school as a basketball player. There’s also chopped-up footage used throughout from various times captured in Pop’s short career.
The fallen Brooklyn native’s critically-acclaimed debut album Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon remains a Top 5 Billboard 200 staple even nearly a year after its July 2020 release. The project currently stands at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and has enjoyed the longest run at No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip Hop chart since 1990.
Pop posthumously collected a few more plaques from the RIAA earlier this week with his hit single “Dior” now 3x-platinum. While “For the Night” featuring DaBaby and Lil Baby also going 4x-platinum and the 50 Cent and Roddy Ricch-assisted “The Woo” achieving double-platinum status.
Six @POPSMOKE10 songs earned platinum RIAA certifications this week:
For the Night – 4x platinum
Dior – 3x platinum
The Woo – 2x platinum
What You Know Bout Love – 2x platinum
Hello – 1x platinum
