Lil B‘s favorite sort of rapper, sort of singer Post Malone has won fans over with his particular brand of rap crooning with his megahit “Congratulations” alongside Quavo still getting burn. The Texas native is flying high again with his first #1 Billboard Hot 100 single in “Rockstar” featuring Atlanta’s 21 Savage, which knocked Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” from the top spot.
Congratulations are in order for Post Malone, whose “Rockstar,” featuring 21 Savage, hits No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated Oct. 28), marking the first leader for each artist. Plus, Portugal. The Man’s “Feel It Still” reaches the Hot 100’s top five, and takes over atop the Radio Songs chart, while Sam Smith returns to the Hot 100’s top 10 with “Too Good at Goodbyes.”
“Rockstar,” released on Republic Records, becomes the 1,068th No. 1 in the Hot 100’s 59-year history. Post Malone (born Austin Richard Post) had previously peaked at a No. 8 high with “Congratulations,” featuring Quavo, in July, while 21 Savage (Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph) had hit a No. 12 best with “Bank Account.”
Post keeps adding to his epic 2017, this after late last month “Rockstar” broke the Apple Music streaming record. Pretty safe to say Post Malone won’t be talking that he wants to be a rock and country star garbage anymore.
