The song “Waiting For Never” by Post Malone is about the futile hope of expecting someone to change who they are, and the realisation that it is wasted effort. The narrator has experienced many heartbreaks but keeps returning to the same mistakes, believing that it will be different this time. Ultimately, the chorus of the song encourages the idea of learning from the experience, understanding that expecting someone to change against their will is futile and accepting that they won’t. The narrator reminds himself of this lesson, “I’d be waitin’ for never, waitin’ for never”.
The official statistics reflect how hip-hop has become the dominant music over the last 10 years.

Malone has countless designs incorporated into his arm sleeves, so it can be hard to tell what’s included given they’re mostly all done in black ink. Some smaller or hard-to-see tattoos on his arms include the Motorhead logo, Gallenson’s Gun logo, a samurai skull and a faceless man. Here are the rapper’s most prominent arm tattoos.Malone explained the origins of his large Jesus tattoo in a video for GQ, saying, “Jesus is very handsome so I figured, how can we make him super metal? So we made him Easter Jesus.” Malone paid tribute to his baby daughter by inking her initials, DDP, on the right side of his forehead in a huge gothic script. The sweet, sentimental tattoo is a way for the touring musician to keep his baby near him even when he’s on the road. Malone has a saint lifting up his robe to reveal a skeleton drawn on the top of his left hand and up his arm. A similar design appears on the Too Young album cover.The cracked appearance of the tattoo is partially Bieber’s fault: He bumped Malone while they were playing basketball just days after the rapper got inked. “He just messed up the whole thing, but it still looks kinda tight. It looks like magma,” Malone shared with GQ in 2016. “Justin did apologize but he’s gonna have to buy me a new one.”
Malone has slowly added more ink to his chest and torso over the years. While not every design has been identified, here are the singer’s most notable illustrations.”It’s really tough not being able to see her, but she’s coming out more often now,” Malone told GQ in 2022. “I’m just happy to see her. But it is heartbreaking having to leave and not be able to be with her all the time.”
The rapper got his first tattoo the same year his debut single, “White Iverson,” came out and he has been steadily adding more designs on his body ever since.
One of Malone’s earliest face tattoos was the words “Stay Away” written in flowing script above his right eyebrow. He shared that it was inspired by rapper Lil Peep’s “Cry Baby” tattoo and is a reference to his favorite Nirvana song.He also has the word “Patient” tattooed in a jagged font on one bicep as a reference to a music video for his song of the same name. He told GQ that the particular placement of this design really hurt. A suite of blackjack cards sits near Malone’s temple on the right side of his face. He got it in Montreal “for fun” because he loves playing blackjack, he told GQ in 2016. Blink and you’ll miss it! Malone has a small Cartier Love bangle loop tattooed on his left index finger, an addition he says was one of the most painful. “It felt like I was tattooing my soul,” he said.One of Malone’s biggest body tattoos is the Greek phrase “Molon labe,” which loosely translates to “Come and take them.” The historical Greek reference ties into Malone’s support of the Second Amendment.
Malone has the animated milkshake from Aqua Teen Hunger Force tattooed on his right side and according to the singer, it was one of the most painful designs. “It’s dumb because it’s a milkshake and it hurt the most,” he told GQ in 2020.
Malone is a huge Nirvana and Kurt Cobain fan. He’s covered Nirvana songs and has a few tributes to Cobain and the band on his body, including “Nevermind” and “Whatever” on his palms, a portrait of Cobain on one arm and the “Stay Away” script. He has also paid tribute to other music legends like Bob Dylan and Bob Marley through tattooed portraits on his arms.While most of Malone’s tattoos are black and gray, he does have a few colorful pieces in his collection, like this smiling skull with a blue-and-red Texas flag motif. It’s another nod to his Texas upbringing.
Malone continues to add new tattoos to his legs, including a brightly colored ode to Disney’s Beauty and the Beast with the two characters in a heart, another gun design and a huge skull wearing a feather headdress. He also has a colorful tattoo of Vault Boy, the corporate mascot of the Vault-Tec Corporation. Malone’s last tattoo of 2019 was a bold medieval gauntlet and flail weapon, which tattoo artist Kyle Hediger inked on the “Circles” singer’s face right before his Times Square New Year’s Eve performance. The gloved hand holds a spiky flail that dips below one cheekbone. A portrait of the late president appears on one hand. Malone got the tattoo in 2016 and has said he admires JFK. The Anheuser-Busch logo also flanks the portrait.Over the years, Malone has continually inked designs onto his face. However, not every facial tattoo is always visible as some are covered by his beard or head of hair. Here are Post Malone’s most notable face tattoos. In 2023, Malone was denied entry to an Australian bar because of his tattoos, which was something he “never really experienced” before. “They turned me away for my tattoos,” he told The West Australian of QT Perth’s rooftop bar. The hotel later issued an apology. He has a skull face surrounded by a puff of cigarette smoke on his outer thigh. Below the design are the words “smoke sum.” He also has another skull tattoo with the phrase, “To serve and protect.”
Malone has the Lord of the Rings character Sauron tattooed on his right elbow. “He’s the coolest character. He’s huge and he has a cool-ass mace. What else do you want from a villain?” the musician explained to GQ. However, as of 2020, the tattoo remained unfinished.

The tattoos were courtesy of artist Ganji, who inked the singer in Tokyo.You’ll see the Oblivion logo tattooed atop one of Malone’s feet, a shout-out to the popular RPG video game series. Malone is a noted gamer so the placement makes total sense.According to Malone, his friend Kyle grabbed inspiration from a video game and added the rapper’s face to one of the characters. “I gotta add the face tattoos to my tattoo,” he told GQ. “So it’s like tattoo inception.”The words “REST EASY” are spelled out on Malone’s knuckles, and he also has portraits of some of his favorite musical inspirations and a thick length of barbed wire incorporated into the design. The portraits include Elvis, Dimebag Darrell, John Lennon, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and George Harrison, among a few others. “Without these guys, I wouldn’t be making music right now,” Malone told GQ. Malone has a cow skull inked on his throat and upper chest. Next to the skull are two bald eagles in flight — a light eagle on one side of his neck and a dark eagle on the other. According to Malone, the Playboy Bunny on his arm was his first tattoo ever — and it was inspired by Justin Bieber. “We were working on Stoney, and then we had a tattoo artist come through, and I was like, ‘You know what? Justin Bieber’s got some tats, and I love you, but I know I’m way tougher than you,’ ” he shared at the time, adding that he doesn’t know why he chose a bunny for his monumental first tat.
The singer let fans get up close and personal with the tattoo process when he added a bleeding buzzsaw to his cheek in 2020. He documented the process on Instagram Stories, and photographer Adam DeGross also shared the ink session on Instagram. Malone got the tattoo while visiting Kansas City on tour.
“I feel like the face tattoos make me interesting to look at. What I might lack in handsomeness, I make up for in intrigue, at least,” he’s said. As for the placement, it was painful. “It was like getting poked on your eyeball through your eyelid,” Malone told GQ.
In 2020, Malone got a buzz cut and debuted new ink: a huge skeleton head drawn across his scalp, stretching from the top of his head to one ear. “I have cut my hair even shorter, also skeletons are cool. Spread your heart as much as you can,” he wrote in an Instagram post showing off the new ink. “A little love goes farther than you think. Stay strong, and keep kicking ass.”
On the front of Malone’s right forearm are two different tattoos: one of a Minuteman and another of a “guy on a horse stabbing a guy with a spear,” the latter of which he told GQ was “pretty cool.”Snakes, like skulls, are a common motif in Malone’s body art. One of his first arm tattoos was a snake wrapped around a gun, another reference to Malone’s fascination with firearms.The “Sunflower” singer’s many tattoos range from tributes to his young daughter and portraits of music legends to recurring motifs of snakes, skulls and guns.While Malone has several big, bold tattoos on his face, he also has a small collection of teeny designs under his right eye: a small Playboy Bunny rabbit head, a heart, his daughter’s initials and a smiley face with Xs for eyes grouped together. (The smiley tattoo, one of his first pieces, is an “accidental” Marshmello reference and was not intended to pay homage to the DJ.)

According to Malone, his friend Kyle grabbed inspiration from a video game and added the rapper’s face to one of the characters. “I gotta add the face tattoos to my tattoo,” he told GQ. “So it’s like tattoo inception.”
Another ode to his Texas upbringing, Malone has a Dallas Cowboys football helmet emblazoned on his left clavicle. Next to it is a large mural of a four-horned figure holding a staff.Malone has a line of barbed wire tattooed around his hairline, although it is not always visible depending on his hair length. “I just think barbed wire is cool. I’m going to regret it when I start balding,” he previously joked to GQ.
Why did he name himself Post Malone?
In a conversation on Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg’s VH1 show, Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party, he explained he dubbed himself Post Malone around age 14. The pseudonym is a combination of his last name, Post, and the rest was provided by a rap name generator online.
Starbucks introduced blonde espresso in 2012. The blonde’s beans are roasted at a lower temperature for a shorter time than the dark roast, which makes for a smoother and lighter flavor. You might get nutty, citrus notes in a blonde roast versus the chocolate and caramel flavors in a dark roast.

When everyone got together to watch the very first episode at a launch party, she cried over the way she was portrayed. \”I was like, ‘Oh my gosh. Everyone thinks I’m this bitch and I’m not. I’m seven!’\” In October 2019, Post Malone made it rain with $50,000 worth of singles at a nightclub appearance; in April 2017, TMZreported that he spent $8,000 just on Popeye’s biscuits, and in October 2018, it was revealed Post Malone dropped a whopping $40,000 on Postmates in just a year, usually getting eats delivered to him while he’s on tour. He also owns a sprawling $3 million mansion outside of Salt Lake City, Utah. In 2015, Post Malone released “White Iverson” on Soundcloud, where it became a hit after receiving praise from hip-hop bigwigs including Wiz Khalifa and the late Mac Miller. The streaming success led to Post Malone’s signing with Republic Records. Justin Bieber picked up Post Malone as his opening act and even sang on his 2016 debut album Stoney.
She earned her bachelor’s degree in Biology from Siena College, where she graduated with honors after publishing her thesis on the effects of Hollywood medical myths on emergency bystanders.”Post Malone’s songwriting style is a bit repetitive,” Berklee College of Music songwriting professor Kareem Clarke explained to Vice. “We’ve got a lot of sixteenth note rhythms that’ll maybe repeat for three times and then go into a nice ending phrase.” He added, “Even if it’s the first time you’re hearing the song, you can anticipate the fact that there is going to be that down, on-the-one phrase. It makes it easier for the normal listener to latch on to that and remember it and know what’s about to come next.” Clarke also said that opening a song with the hook, like Post Malone does with “Better Now,” draws listeners in and encourages them to stream his songs for at least the opening 30 seconds.
Indeed, it was a tad lighter but still creamy and delicious. And I did come in fifth in my age group with a time comparable to my pre-baby races. Was it the extra shot of caffeine, my playlist or eight weeks of training? I’m not sure (though caffeine may help fuel a workout), but I think I have a new pre-race beverage.As his own principal songwriter, Post Malone is able to keep more of his royalties than artists who employ others to write their material. That comes in handy when you’ve sold 60 million records and have had, to date, one track certified Diamond (“Congratulations”). Additionally, experts have claimed that Post Malone’s writing style is almost specifically designed to draw listeners in.
At the time, Maddie was too young to realize she could stand up for herself. In retrospect, she said, \”It helped me a lot to be able to be like, ‘I can say [no]. I can stand up for myself.’\”

While he admits he doesn’t wear deodorant, he says he’s asked people close to him if he stinks—and they said no.The former child star shared some of what her mom said to her during a recent interview on Emily Ratajkowski’s podcast, High Low With EmRata, revealing that during a panic attack last year, in the middle of which she called her mom, certain things from the past were dredged up.
Why do people like Post Malone?
The Chicago Tribune posited that Malone’s success comes down to “his sparse, chilly and pop-hook laden music [which] is at its core a more palatable version of current trends in hip-hop”. Malone’s relationship with hip-hop has been complicated from the beginning but his comments have continued to fuel the tension.
Fellow Berklee professor Brian “Raydar” Ellis explained that Post Malone’s limited vocal range actually works to his advantage as well because it’s easy to sing along to even if you aren’t, say, a Mariah Carey type. “People find that Post’s music is easy to sing along to because he doesn’t really stray far from the root of the song. The notes that he sings are what we call diatonic, which means they’re in the scale degree of what he’s singing.” Ellis compared Post Malone’s track “Rockstar” to one like “Love on Top” by Beyonce, which hits a lot more varied notes within its running time.As a mother of two, I’m powered by coffee—specifically Starbucks. My reward for making it through Saturday-morning soccer practice or swim lessons? A grande skinny vanilla latte that I get to drink hot while my husband drives (a treat for this mom). It’s creamy, just a little sweet and has two much-needed espresso shots.
“It took a long time, because I used to suck. I was really bad,” he told The Huffington Post. “You gotta start somewhere. You just gotta stick with it, because a lot of people wanna give up whenever they first start something.” He picked out the name “Post Malone” from a rap name generator. He enrolled in Tarrant County College in Texas but left and moved to Los Angeles, where he lived with professional streamer and longtime friend Jason Probst. He and Probst began streaming Minecraft sessions, in which he would sometimes perform covers.
Post Malone’s net worth is staggering—not that you’d necessarily be able to tell he’s wealthy by looking at him. The singer-rapper’s signature style is low-key, save for his grills and tattoos. His success in streaming, touring and brand endorsements, plus his sense of humor and relatable and self-effacing nature, have contributed to his cash flow in a big way.Since she started so young, she barely remembers what life was like beforehand, sharing that she’s \”blocked out so much of my childhood that I actually don’t know what my life was like even just before working.\”Kelsey Kryger wears many hats.

Finally, around 11 or 12 years old, Melissa was able to break their contract with the show. Maddie said her mom \”did everything\” to free them from the nearly 30-episode seasons, which \”consumed [their] lives.\”
Most viewers also assumed she was \”the most well-treated dancer,\” thanks to the editing, but she actually had some of the highest pressure on her shoulders. \”…she was like, ‘You’re my girl, so you have to lead everyone to victory every time,’ which is just not sustainable,\” she added.Just last year, she had a \”really bad\” panic attack. \”I called my mom and things were coming up from the past, and she apologized to me,\” Maddie revealed. \”She was like, ‘I’m so sorry that I put you through that.’ And it’s so sad, because she would never want to hurt us, but none of us knew how crazy it would get.\”
I ran in my first road race since getting pregnant four years ago on Saturday.

Instead, I sprung for the blonde.If you’re on the hunt for egg-cellent puns and jokes about eggs that are poached, scrambled or pan-fried (depending on your preference) to perfect hilarity?

Why Post Malone is so rich?
The singer-rapper’s signature style is low-key, save for his grills and tattoos. His success in streaming, touring and brand endorsements, plus his sense of humor and relatable and self-effacing nature, have contributed to his cash flow in a big way. Here’s exactly how Post Malone made all of that money.
Maddie recalled being \”perceived as a little brat in the first season\” because of the script that crew members gave her. \”When I was doing the show, in the first season I was seven, there were male producers saying, ‘This is what you have to say,’\” she explained. \”My mom wasn’t in the room, so I was like, ‘Okay, I just have to do whatever I’m being told.’ They would say, ‘Say you’re the best, say you’re better than everyone else, say blah blah blah.’\”Wait…what?

Is Post Malone nice?
Fans of the “Better Now” singer have known for a while that Malone isn’t just a top 10 hit maker — he’s also a majorly nice guy too. Proof of Malone’s good guy status can be seen in a video shared by TikTok creator Blade Hooper @bladehooper.
In May 2019, TMZreported that Post Malone was also embarking on a non-musical venture: the marijuana business. His company, Shaboink, will reportedly sell its own strain of cannabis, plus vaporizers and other merchandise.Post Malone was born Austin Richard Post on July 4, 1995 in Syracuse, New York, where he lived until he was 10 years old, at which point he moved to Grapevine, Texas, where his father worked for the Dallas Cowboys. He was inspired to learn to play guitar from playing Guitar Hero when he was a teenager, and his mother bought him his first guitar the following Christmas. He taught himself the ins and outs of the instrument via YouTube videos, which he admitted didn’t always go well. Post Malone makes big money—and he spends it, too. He confessed to Rolling Stonethat before he was famous, he worked in a chicken joint and blew $800 of his hard-earned money on Versace slippers. Since becoming famous, well, his habits haven’t changed much: He showed the magazine his Rolls Royce Wraith and a pair of $1,700 slippers. After his Wraith was T-boned by a Kia, he upgraded to a $420,000 Phantom. He also owns a Lamborghini and a souped up Ford Explorer for which he originally paid $1,700. The now-20-year-old picked up a lot of traits during her time on the show, many of which she says she’s trying to unlearn now. \”You have to be the best.

Later that year, he released “Sunflower” featuring Swae Lee for the film Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse. The song spent over eight months in the top 10 and went eight-times Platinum in the United States.
You can choose from dark roast, blonde and decaf. Dark roast is the default, so if you don’t specify, your drink will be made with that. If you already adore your go-to Starbucks orders, you may not want to stir things up, but adventurous types might want to consider branching out.
That said, it might not be the best choice for everyone. For folks who love sweeter Starbucks beverages—Caramel Macchiato or the Double Chocolate Cream Frappuccino with whipped cream and chocolate syrup, for example—it might be best to stick with the less-sweet dark roast. And decaf is always a good option if it’s later in the day or if caffeine isn’t you friend.Posty is also a betting man: He paid rapper YG a whopping $20,000 after losing a bet on a Dallas Cowboys game against the St. Louis Rams in the NFL playoffs.
Aside from his album sales and royalties, Post Malone makes big bucks in other areas of the business. Forbesreports he grosses $500,000 per concert, and the artist’s Posty Fest—which featured artists including Meek Mill, Pharrell, Jaden Smith and Rae Sremmurd—sold out before the lineup was even announced. Additionally, Post Malone has sponsorships with Bud Light, HyperX and True Religion. In 2018, it was announced that Post Malone was in the works to start his own record label and may also make a movie.

“Old Town Road” holds the record for the longest stretch at No. 1 with 19 weeks. It also became the fastest song in history to be certified diamond. “The Box” charted at No.
In September 2017, Post Malone told Billboardthat after “Rockstar” debuted at No. 2 on the Hot 100, he was shocked and wanted to continue the hot streak he had starting with “White Iverson” in 2015. “I guess as an artist, it’s never really enough,” he admitted. “You always wanna strive to get bigger and better and push the limits of what you can actually do. I guess I just want to keep on growing and one day be the biggest artist in the world, and just do my best to put out the best music that I can. The Apple streaming record actually really surprised me, so I’m hoping for the next one, I can beat my own record. I just want to keep kicking a**, man. There’s a lot of pressure to make the best music and I just want to make music that I can relate to and that my fans can relate to at the same time.”TikTok has clued her into a lot of things she doesn’t remember, as fans upload old clips. \”It’s weird to find out things that I did when I was younger on TikTok. I’ll see people posting things of me, and I’m like, ‘I don’t even remember doing that,’\” she said. When she’s not writing, Sammi moonlights as an EMT.

What I didn’t know? They may be lighter in flavor and color but not in caffeine. Blonde roasts have more caffeine. Why? The shorter roast time lets the beans hang onto more oil, which increases the caffeine content.

In chronological order, they topped the charts with: “Love Me Do” in 1962, “She Loves You” and “I Want to Hold Your Hand” in 1963, “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “A Hard Day’s Night,” and “I Feel Fine,” in 1964, “Eight Days a Week,” “Ticket to Ride,” “Help!,” “Yesterday,” and “We Can Work It Out” in 1965, “Paperback Writer” in 1966, “Penny Lane” “All You Need Is Love,” and “Hello, Goodbye” in 1967, “Hey Jude” in 1968, “Get Back” and “Something” in 1969, and “Let It Be” and “The Long and Winding Road” in 1970.The King had five No. 1 songs in 1956 alone: “Heartbreak Hotel,” “I Want You, I Need You, I Love You,” “Don’t Be Cruel,” “Hound Dog,” and “Love Me Tender.” He was 21 at the time.
Is Post Malone an introvert?
He’s an introvert But it is clear that Malone has no interest in backing up his rapping persona with a celebrity exterior.
Jackson’s reign began with 1986’s “When I Think of You” when she was 20 years old. Then, there was 1989’s “Miss You Much,” 1990’s “Escapade,” “Black Cat,” and “Love Will Never Do (Without You),” 1993’s “That’s the Way Love Goes” and “Again,” 1997’s “Together Again,” 2000’s “Doesn’t Really Matter,” and 2001’s “All for You.”Afterwards, there was “I Hear a Symphony,” also in 1965, “You Can’t Hurry Love” and “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” in 1966, “Love Is Here and Now You’re Gone” and “The Happening” in 1967, “Love Child” in 1968, and “Someday We’ll Be Together” in 1969.Next there was “Umbrella” in 2007, “Take a Bow,” “Live Your Life,” and “Disturbia” in 2008, “Rude Boy,” “Love the Way You Lie,” “Only Girl (In the World),” and “What’s My Name” in 2010, “S&M” and “We Found Love” in 2011, “Diamonds” in 2012, “The Monster” in 2013, and “Work” in 2016.The Supremes are still the best-selling girl group of all time, and with 12 No. 1 hits, it’s easy to see why. They had five No. 1 singles in a row: “Where Did Our Love Go,” “Baby Love,” and “Come See About Me” in 1964, then “Stop! In the Name of Love” and “Back in My Arms Again” in 1965.
Besides being the second best-selling artist of all time, the best-selling solo artist of all time, and the best-selling female artist of all time (in terms of No. 1s), Carey has plenty of other records under her belt.
The next year, there was “Too Much,” “All Shook Up,” “(Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear,” and “Jailhouse Rock.” In 1958, he had “Don’t” and “Hard Headed Woman.” In 1959, there was just “A Big Hunk o’ Love.” Featuring two bonus tracks, “Waiting For Never” and “Hateful,” taken from Post Malone’s fourth studio album, Twelve Carat Toothache, this exclusive 12” single is pressed on translucent red vinyl and is the first time these two singles will be released physically.

He scored his debut leader in late 2017 with “Rockstar,” which featured 21 Savage and which ended up as one of the longest-running rulers that year. In 2018 he tacked “Psycho” (which features Ty Dolla $ign) on to his growing list of champions, and earlier this year his massive tune “Sunflower” (with Swae Lee) also led the charge for just one frame, though it ended up living inside the top 10 for a historically-long tenure.

And work it did. The video then cuts to the performance and magic really did happen when Hooper held the t-shirt above his head and caught Post’s attention. Post miraculously invited Hooper onstage with him and they even hugged after the superstar helped hoist him on stage.
Who would’ve thought that America’s Sweetheart is none-other than Post Malone? Fans of the “Better Now” singer have known for a while that Malone isn’t just a top 10 hit maker — he’s also a majorly nice guy too.
The comments section was obsessed. “[Everyone] should try to be humble like Post Malone and the world would be a better place,” wrote one person. “As always, most WHOLESOME human out there,” someone else agreed. “Post Malone is the chilliest guy on earth. For real,” a third commenter wrote. “I love that they hug like they’ve been buddies!” someone else noted.

What looked like overnight success took years of behind the scenes work — though he was already working with a savvy team of marketers, managers, and producers even before the release of White Iverson. Growing up in Dallas, Malone’s father was a wedding DJ, and Guitar Hero II piqued his interest in music. From there he learned how to play the guitar, performed in a slew of rock bands, rapped and eventually moved to Los Angeles to realise his dreams. According to The New Yorker, it was here he shared a place with other aspiring artists including gamers and YouTubers.
Three albums in and Malone still hasn’t lost his sheen. Whether you love him or hate him, his songs are inescapable. And they’re hard to get out of your head.
As history has shown us time and time again, Malone’s style of diet hip-hop has always struck a chord with mainstream audiences. He isn’t the first to do it, just the latest. Hip-hop surpassed rock as the most popular genre in the US in 2018. Yet people still prefer a homogenised version of the music, one that erases blackness and racial pain – but doing so doesn’t strip hip-hop of its origin. An art and cultural movement born in the Bronx, New York City, hip-hop was created by the African American, Latinx and Caribbean communities. It represented rebellion and freedom while giving a voice to people who often went unheard.In an interview with Vice, Berkeley College of Music songwriting professors Kareem Clarke and Brian “Raydar” Ellis explained what makes his songs so catchy. “Post Malone’s songwriting style is a bit repetitive,” Clarke explains. “Even if it’s the first time you’re hearing the song, you can anticipate the fact that there is going to be that down, on-the-one phrase. It makes it easier for the normal listener to latch on to that and remember it and know what’s about to come next.” A study conducted by UCF found that after looking through thousands of tracks, the most repetitive ones were likely to become chart-topping hits.
Who is more popular Drake or Post Malone?
Drake According to ChartData, four of the top five most-streamed artists are rappers, with Drake topping the list at 36.3 billion streams, significantly outscoring the runner-up’s numbers by a wide margin: Post Malone trailed behind in second place with 18.9 billion, followed by Eminem, with 17.8 billion; Ariana Grande, 13.9 …
Removing context from 808s, trap beats and hip-hop’s inherent sadness is more palatable for some and Malone is just a conduit for this brand of music. We’re not the first ones to ponder his success and we certainly won’t be the last. But somewhere between his charming smile, face tattoos and catchy music, the reason why we’re all obsessed exists; depending on who you are, the answer is complicated. Malone’s relationship with hip-hop has been complicated from the beginning but his comments have continued to fuel the tension. In a 2017 interview with NewOnce, Malone said that modern hip-hop lacked “people talking about real shit”. He also added that “if you’re looking to think about life, don’t listen to hip-hop.” It was a strange take from someone who enjoyed insurmountable success thanks to the genre, specifically Canadian superstar Drake’s sing-song flow. He later apologised, chalking up his comments to a few too many Bud Lights. But it isn’t just his music that has everyone obsessed. The Chicago Tribune posited that Malone’s success comes down to “his sparse, chilly and pop-hook laden music [which] is at its core a more palatable version of current trends in hip-hop”.
Now, exactly five years later, Malone is one of the biggest stars in the world. Though, his rise to the top was riddled with controversy. White Iverson was as divisive as it was infectious. There was no way around the fact that this white teenager was comparing himself to a legendary baller, co-opting African American slang while donning fuzzy braids. For some, it was an uncomfortable double standard they were willing to overlook for the merits of the song. In contrast, others, especially black critics and artists, questioned the up-and-coming star. As he faced scrutiny for appropriating black culture, even being called ‘the Donald Trump of hip-hop,’ Malone’s success exploded.
Today, Malone is at a stage of pop ubiquity rivalled only by the likes of Beyoncé, Rihanna, Drake and the greats. Somewhere along the way, Malone went from a hip-hop outsider to mainstream success. His popularity transcends lines drawn by factors like genre, age and geography. He’s even become a heartthrob. One Facebook group, Posty Moms (Moms who adore Post Malone), which has almost 10,000 members sees users fawning over the rapper. “I wish I were his boxers,” one mum writes.Malone hails from Dallas, TX, and though his town has a small but thriving hip-hop scene, I’m sure the genre of choice is good ‘ol honky tonky barbecue-stained country. Post only goes for the OG, outlaw stuff, though, as he cites Johnny Cash as his number one influence.
You may think it silly of Republic to sign Malone off of one hit, but Post has a more than a few other buzzing tracks out right now, and if you dug “White Iverson,” you’ll likely appreciate their similar vibes — slow, woozy, ATL-inspired ballads in which Post sings about typical trap motifs as if they were elements of a love song. For starters, check out another athlete-inspired FKi-produced cut, “Holyfield.”

Unfamiliar with Post Malone? Well it’s time to get acquainted. The Dallas singing rapper just signed a contract with Republic Records based largely in part off the stunning success of his breakout record, “White Iverson,” which now has over 30 million plays on soundcloud. Malone is white, but he doesn’t play basketball. Like Iverson, though, he shares an aversion toward practice, and he prefers to go straight into the studio for unmeditated, off-the-top recordings.
