Austin Richard Post, more commonly known as Post Malone, is a singer/songwriter that debuted in 2015 with his single “White Iverson.” Post Malone’s first song became a hit as it slowly hit number 14 on the Hot 100, but from the beginning of his career, he has not failed to create more hits. 

Following “White Iverson” was one of his most famous songs “Congratulations” featuring Quavo, then went on to “Rockstar” featuring 21 Savage, which was his first song to hit number one on the Hot 100. 

Post Malone just recently dropped a new album called “Hollywood’s Bleeding” on Sept. 6 and it’s already a big hit. “Hollywood’s Bleeding” hit number one on the Hot 100 only 22 days after being released. The album has 17 songs and features a diverse array of artists including Ozzy Osbourne, Travis Scott, SZA, Dababy, Halsey and more. 

Each song on the album comes from a different genre of music, which is something of a signature style for Post Malone. I think that draws the listeners more into his music because by giving more of a variety to choose from, it makes it easier for listeners to relate. 

“Take What You Want” is one of my personal favorite releases on the album, featuring Ozzy Osbourne and Travis Scott. The song has a rock and hip hop taste to it. If you are looking for a more heartfelt song, then maybe his song “Goodbyes” featuring Young Thug would be more of your thing. There are also upbeat and fun songs like “Wow” and “Sunflower” featuring Swae Lee, featured in the movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse and many others. 

All in all, “Hollywood’s Bleeding” is a very successful album filled with many talented artists and has a song for almost everyone’s taste in music. I am looking forward to Post Malone’s upcoming music and will enjoy “Hollywood’s Bleeding” until then.
