Post Malone's "Beerbongs & Bentleys": Everything We Know

Post Malone has become a divisive cultural figure. In the past, the “Psycho” singer has caught flak for his foot-in-mouth approach to interviews; prior comments on a lack of emotion in hip-hop music went viral, providing his detractors with a fresh batch of ammunition. And while his origin story tells of a man enamored with Bob Dylan, Kurt Cobain and their ilk, Post has managed to solidify himself as a fixture in the game. Case in point, artists like 21 Savage, Migos, 50 Cent, Kanye West, and Gucci Mane have deemed him a worthy collaborator.

By now, Post’s fanbase have no doubt played out Stoney and “Rockstar” in equal measure. In the nick of time, Posty came through with a new single off Beerbongs & Bentleys, the Ty Dolla $ign assisted “Psycho.” Despite his vocal disparagers, “Psycho” picked up where “Rockstar” left off. With a soft, hypnotic instrumental, “Psycho” differs from its predecessor in tone. For one, Post’s latest is set in the major key, giving it an immediately feel-good vibe. Where “Rockstar” seemed content to celebrate the negatives of hedonism, “Psycho” is like a spiritual successor to “Congratulations.”

What does that mean for Beerbongs & Bentleys? In truth, little is known about Post’s anticipated sophomore project. It’s the rare breed of A-list album in which information remains scarce; perhaps that says something about Post’s rising status. In all honesty, Posty has managed to keep this one close to the belt. Here’s what we do know.
