Dua Lipa Hints at Collaboration With Pop Smoke for His Second Posthumous Album
The ‘Levitating’ singer is hyping up the upcoming release of Pop Smoke’s self-titled studio album, sparking rumors of a new duet with the late hip-hop star.
AceShowbiz –Dua Lipa has hinted a new musical collaboration with late rapper Pop Smoke will drop next week.
In a short new video on Instagram, the “Levitating” singer shared a clip of the late Brooklyn drill star dancing to her 2018 song “One Kiss”.
“YOU CAN’T SAY POP WITHOUT SMOKE,” she captioned the video and added the date “July 16.”
That’s the release date for the second posthumous album from the rapper after Smoke was shot and killed during a home invasion in Los Angeles in February 2020.
There’s no official confirmation so far as to whether she’s featured on the new record, which is simply titled “Pop Smoke“.
Pop’s manager, producer Rico Beats, announced the album via Instagram in May (21).
The 17-track album arrives nearly a year after Pop’s first posthumously released album, “Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon”.
“Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon”, which 50 Cent helped to complete, was a major success, topping the U.S. Billboard 200 chart and making history as Pop Smoke became the first hip-hop act to posthumously open at number one with his debut studio album.
It also hit number one in the U.K. and gave the late rapper a Grammy for Best Rap Performance, thanks to his hit song “Dior”.
50 cent, however, previously said he likely wouldn’t return for the upcoming LP. “He talked to me about the new record, and I’m not sure if I’ll participate with this, that record,” he said. “I just wanted to make sure that his record did what it was supposed to. My interaction with Pop was like he was looking at me like I could tell him the right way to go, and that everything would work based on what I was saying.”
