Artist of the Week: Post Malone

AceShowbiz -Flawlessly blending many musical genres together, Post Malone has successfully garnered people’s love and become one of the brightest musicians in the span of five years. His music has topped charts all around the world in addition to being covered by the likes of Shawn Mendes and 5 Seconds of Summer.

Not only that, he even broke Michael Jackson‘s 34-year-old record on Billboard chart after his debut album “Stoney” spent its 77th week in the top ten of Billboard’s Top R&B and Hip-Hop Albums, beating out the 76 triumphant weeks that the King of Pop’s “Thriller” spent up there in the 80s. He also broke a chart record previously held by The Beatles for 54 years after 9 songs off “Beerbongs & Bentleys” placed in the top 20 of Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. The band previously charted 6 songs.

The chart-topping sophomore album additionally earns him several nominations at the upcoming 61st Grammy Awards. It is nominated for Album of the Year, with 21 Savage-assisted “Rockstar” receiving nominations for “Record of the Year” and “Best Rap/Sung Performance”. Additionally, “Better Now” is nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance.

While Malone, who is expected to perform at the event, waits for the results of the awards, he has been enjoying the success of his Swae Lee collaboration “Sunflower” and standalone single “Wow.” The soundtrack to “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” recently topped Billboard’s Hot 100 chart after spending five weeks within the top five. In addition to giving Malone his third No. 1 song, the song became the first song from a soundtrack to reach the top of the chart, after Justin Timberlake‘s “Can’t Stop the Feeling” did so in 2016.

Meanwhile, his standalone single “Wow.” grew by 1,700 plays on radio stream. Rolling Stone dubbed it “a strong number that’s only likely to rise, given to radio’s susceptibility to momentum narratives.” It also peaked at No. 11 and No. 5 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts respectively.
