Post Malone – Wow
Post Malone delivered beerbongs & bentleys back in April, although he’s remained a streaming darling thanks to the replay value of his sophomore album, combined with the features he’s doled it; most recently, he appeared on 21 Savage’s i am > i was album with “all my friends.” He’s back today, with solo material, and not just that, it appears to be a proper single. The rapper/country singer/whatever you’d like to call him did say he would release a new song by the end of the month, and we are officially in “end of the month” territory, so we shouldn’t be too surprised.
The song comes complete with animated visuals that perfectly play into Christmas (or Post’s version, which includes a tatted up, gold-grill-wearing Santa, Christmas trees with beer cans as ornaments, guitar-smashing elves and fire-breathing reindeer). It’s melodic, catchy, and you’ll definitely hear this on the radio, in like, two minutes. It starts off innocently enough with a little bass plucking, but it really becomes a banger when the drums kick in. We can thank Louis Bell and Frank Dukes for the masterful beat.
Are you fucking with it? Christmas Day playlist worthy?
Before I dropped Stoney none of y’all really cared
Now they always say, “Congratulations,” to the kid
And this is not a 40, but I’m pourin’ out this shit
Used to have a lot, but I got more now
Made another hit ’cause I got bored now
