U.S rapper Post Malone has recently dropped his first single ‘Rockstar’ from his upcoming sophomore album Beerbongs and Bentleys. The new track features Atlanta born rapper 21 Savage and was produced by Tank God and Louis Bell who worked with Malone on his first album Stoney.
Rockstar was released on the 15th of September and has already taken out the top spot on all streaming platforms in America, plus is sitting at number five on the Spotify top 200 global list. Rockstar is also rising up the Australian charts, with approximately 112,000 streams on Spotify.
Malone returns with lyrics that talk about the ‘rock star’ lifestyle and a beat that perfectly suits his vocal combination of spoken word rapping and R and B-styled singing. Malone also dives deeper into the rock star theme by paying tribute to legends of the industry. In the verse, “switch my whip, came back in black, I’m starting saying rest in peace Bon Scott”, Malone pays tribute to the former AC/DC front man and the final album that Bon Scott worked on Back In Black.
Malone also pays tribute to The Doors front man Jim Morrison in the lyrics, “She ask me light a fire like I’m Morrison”, referencing the song ‘Light My Fire’ which featured on The Doors first album.
Malone originally promised a new album in late 2016; due to a few setbacks the album is being released over a year later, though it promises to make up for it with the inclusion of big name artists and producers including the Grammy Award winning producer Frank Dukes and rapper/producer Metro Boomin.
Beerbongs and Bentleys is the follow up album to Post Malone’s debut album ‘Stoney’, which featured hits such as ‘Go Flex’ and ‘Congratulations’ that gained quintuple platinum certification. We’re hoping this highly anticipated sequel will do even better.
