El rapero Pop Smoke de Brooklyn, nacido como Bashar Barakah Jackson en julio de 1999. En febrero, el artista de 20 años fue asesinado a tiros en Los Ángeles después de un robo. En los meses posteriores a su muerte, “Dior” de Pop Smoke se ha convertido en una adición omnipresente al canon de la música de protesta.
Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon es el primer proyecto póstumo tras su asesinato en un allanamiento de morada el 19 de febrero de 2020. Fue lanzado el 3 de julio de 2020 por Victor Victor Worldwide y Republic Records.
En algunas pistas del álbum, permite que trascienda los límites regionales. Las características de Quavo de Atlanta, así como Charlotte, DaBaby de Carolina del Norte y Tupelo, Swae Lee de Mississippi, muestran la destreza vocal de Pop Smoke y subrayan su creciente popularidad fuera de Nueva York. La cantante colombiana Karol G se une a él en “Enjoy Yourself”, una sensual canción en dos idiomas que se siente hecha a medida para la zona de penumbra del baile posterior a la medianoche.
De las canciones lentas que muestran éxitos anteriores, “What You Know Bout Love”, que interpola el éxito de 2001 del cantante de R&B Ginuwine, “Differences”, es lo más destacado.

The posthumous debut album of the Brooklyn rapper reverberates with the tragedy of his untimely death. Some albums demand ascetic listening, the kind that happens best in solitude or while wearing noise-canceling headphones. Such music has its place, especially in the colder months.

The sound of dissent takes many forms-voices rising, chants echoing. In New York, dissent also sounds like Pop Smoke. The Canarsie-born rapper, who was shot and killed, in February, at a Hollywood Hills home he was renting, was known for his low, rumbling style of Brooklyn drill, which, as Pitchfork and Nylon have noted, has recently filled the streets and shaped the soundtrack of local Black Lives Matter protests.

What You Know Bout Love – Pop Smoke

[Intro]

Uh

[Verse 1]

Shawty go jogging every morning (Every morning)
And she make me breakfast almost every morning (Every morning)
And she take a naked pic before she leave the door
I be waking up to pics before a nigga yawning
And every weekend my shawty comin’ over (Over)
Shawty could Fendi out but she like Fashion Nova (Nova)
She ain’t driving no Camry she pullin’ in a Rover (Rover)
With her hair so curly, I love you, baby

[Chorus]

She said, “What you know ’bout love?” (I’ll tell you everything)
I got what you need (Oh)
Walk up in the store and get what you want (Go get it)
You get what you please
We ’bout to get it on, take off them drawers (I said I love you, baby)
It’s just you and me
You know what I be on, I’m about to go raw (Love you, baby)
‘Cause I like what I see

[Verse 2]

Look, baby, I said I ain’t gon’ front
You got my heart beating so fast to words I can’t pronounce
And I be getting the chills every time I feel your touch
I be looking at the top and girl, it’s only us
All I need is your trust
And girl I told you once, don’t make me tell you twice
I know you see this print through my pants that I know you like
And yo ass be looking so fat when it be in them tights
And I’m going straight to the top, so hope you ain’t afraid of heights
You always keep me right, for a fact, you never left
Through all the trials and tribulations, always had my best
So here’s fifty-five hunnid, go and get your breasts
Start rubbin’ on your butt, start kissing on yo neck
Hey batter, batter, hey batter, batter
Niggas know I had to swing, I had to make a play
I had to apply the pressure, ’cause you my hidden treasure
I think I’m falling in love

[Chorus]

She said, “What you know ’bout love?” (I’ll tell you everything)
I got what you need (Oh)
Walk up in the store and get what you want (Go get it)
You get what you please
We ’bout to get it on, take off them drawers (I said I love you, baby)
It’s just you and me
You know what I be on, I’m about to go raw (Love you, baby)
‘Cause I like what I see
