Earlier this month, fans got to hear Pop Smoke’s debut album Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon, which saw 19 tracks and features from Rowdy Rebel, Quavo, Lil Baby, DaBaby, Swae Lee, Future, Lil Tjay, and more. Over the weekend, the world received a deluxe edition of the project, which now boasts an additional 15 tracks, which also added Fivio Foreign, Davido, PnB Rock, Jamie Foxx, Burna Boy, and more to the mix. One standout from the updated version is the Young Thug and Gunna-assisted “Paranoia,” which originally made headlines because it initially featured a verse from Pusha T. The track sees the collaborators speaking on remaining safe in the midst of danger, a powerful message given Pop Smoke’s passing:

“I just did six days in London, paranoia, shoot for the stars, aim for the moon/

Thoughts in my head, know that I’m Woo, when you see me, you know that I’m Woo/

When you see me, you know that I’m Woo, I said paranoia, I got some thoughts in my head/

I’m at the party, in Cartier, yeah Walk in the club with two straps, when I “Woo,” “Woo” back, don’t ask who I am, shoot that in my Dior…/”

Pop Smoke was tragically murdered while in Hollywood Hills back in February, an apparent victim of a home invasion. Since then, four teenagers were charged with the crime, with a fifth, older individual being charged for attempted murder.

Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon follows the two mixtapes Meet The Woo and Meet The Woo 2, two projects that helped to propel the Brooklyn drill scene. Since then, many others — from his close peers like Fivio, Rah Swish, and Lil Tjay to relative outsiders like French Montana and DaniLeigh — have begun adopting the genre-bending sound.

Fans can press play on both Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon (Deluxe), as well as a new visual for the 50 Cent and Roddy Ricch-assisted “The Woo.”
