Pop Smoke ties Eminem’s record on Official Irish Albums Chart

Pop Smoke’s Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon album, which was executive produced by 50 Cent, is officially Ireland’s biggest debut album released in 2020.

Pop Smoke’s Meet The Woo mixtapes put him on the map, but his legacy was firmly cemented with his debut and posthumous album Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Official Irish Albums Chart in July, and returned to the top spot 10 weeks later to claim a further 5 non-consecutive weeks at the top.

The album has tied with Eminem’s Recovery album for the most weeks at No.1 in Ireland’s history for a rap album (6-6 weeks at No. 1) 

Another Eminem’s record stays untouchable though. Slim Shady has the most number 1 rap albums on the Official Irish Albums Chart history. Check the numbers below:

  1. Eminem – 10 number one albums.
