Post Malone crushes his 18 track album, beerbongs and bentleys
Post Malone, oh Post Malone. Who would have thought that the goofy kid born Austin Post from Dallas, Texas with bangs and a mullet would become one of the most popular artists in only a couple years. By incorporating elements from different genres like hip-hop, rock, country and more, the 22-year-old, who many believed would be a one hit wonder, showed the world his resilience, and proved to everyone including himself, that he was here to stay.
The story starts with his debut release of “White Iverson” back in 2015, which would lead to signing with Republic Records and later releasing his freshman album, Stoney. With chart topping singles like “Congratulations” and “I Fall Apart,” it quickly became apparent that there was something unique about Post Malone. And after watching him life, his bubbly personality really starts to shine and it becomes almost impossible not to love his attitude and relatable demeanor.
Now he brings his sophomore album, beerbongs and bentleys, which features an impressive roster of 21 Savage, G-Eazy, Nikki Minaj, YG, and Ty Dolla $ign. The 18 track piece delivers on his genre bending sound and swirls with clean and minimal productions, riddled with solid kicks, masterfully placed guitar and of course Post’s impressive songwriting and rhythms. His messages range from basic things like partying and meaningless sex, to deeper messages of broken relationships, politics, “drinking the kool-aid”, and the true realities to fame and fortune.
With such a diverse sound and style, there is surely a track for everyone on beerbongs and bentleys. Post Malone once again demonstrates that you don’t have to fit into a mold to make it and, that believing in yourself and pursing dreams can go a long way.
