EDITORS’ NOTES

He’s been labeled a hip–hop artist, but as the song says, Post Malone is a rockstar too. His second album regales fans with tales of the hedonism and excess that 2016’s astoundingly popular Stoney afforded him. The beerbongs & bentleys universe is one of partying, girls, money, and Saint Laurent clothes, but he makes no secret of the downsides to success. Money is everything—except true happiness, and this tenderness adds a dark depth to his addictive songs. This album, like his previous releases, proves that Post holds the recipe for the perfect chart-topper: a wild lifestyle, exceptionally catchy melodies, and the ability to fit Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee and heartfelt acoustic ballads alongside fiery features from Nicki Minaj, YG, and 21 Savage.

About Post Malone

Dropping basketball references like the old-school but wrapping them in thoroughly modern beats, Post Malone hit in 2015 with his single "White Iverson." Raised in Dallas, Malone was NFL before he was NBA thanks to a father who worked for the Cowboys. He loved music from a young age, and planned on joining a band thanks to the video game Guitar Hero, but when his dad gave him a copy of Terror Squad's hit "Lean Back," Post decided to become an MC. He hung with Dallas crew the IRAS until a move to the West Coast dropped him in Los Angeles. After putting some braids in his hair, he coined the term "White Iverson," and when he posted the track in early 2015, he hit a million views within the month. Malone signed with the Republic label later that year. In 2016, he released the single "Go Flex" along with his official debut mixtape, August 26th, which was actually released in May. Months later, his first studio effort arrived. Stoney featured guests like Justin Bieber, Migos' Quavo, and Kehlani. The album peaked at number six on the Billboard 200 and was certified multi-platinum. Following the success of his debut, Post issued the singles "rockstar" with 21 Savage and "Psycho" with Ty Dolla $ign. The former topped the Hot 100 for weeks while the latter peaked at number two. The tracks landed on his sophomore follow-up, Beerbongs & Bentleys, which landed at number one upon its release. Along with producers like Scott Storch, PartyNextDoor, Louis Bell, and London on da Track, the effort also featured guest rappers Nicki Minaj, YG, and G-Eazy, among others. ~ David Jeffries
