Fans have been impatiently anticipating the release of Pop Smoke’s posthumous record, but it looks as if they’re going to have to wait a tad bit longer. 50 Cent has been teasing the project for some time, and back in mid-May, it was shared that Pop Smoke’s forthcoming album would drop Friday, June 12. That would have meant we would be enjoying the new tunes in just two days, but considering the times we’re in at the moment, it’s now been announced that the project’s release date has been pushed back.

Universal Music Group executive Steven Victor took to his Instagram page to share the news with the world on Wednesday (June 10). “Music is the tool of revolution. We have been watching, along with the rest of the world, as long overdue change starts to take root. We have seen Pop’s music become the soundtrack of the moment, unifying the masses,” Victor wrote.

“Given recent events, we have decided to delay the release of his album out of respect for the movement. ‘Make It Rain’ will be released this Friday, June 12th. The album will be released on July 3rd.” At least we can look forward to a new single. Check out the announcement below.
