Post Malone surprises us with a brand new single, “Wow.”
Post Malone has been really active this year, The rapper/country singer/whatever you’d like to call him delivered beerbongs & bentleys back in April, he still remained a streaming darling thanks to the replay value of his sophomore album, combined with the features he’s doled it; most recently, with his appearance on 21 Savage’s i am > i was album with “all my friends” there is no doubt. He’s back today, with solo material titled “Wow”, and not just that, it appears to be a proper single.
The song comes complete with animated visuals that perfectly play into Christmas (or Post’s version, which includes a tatted up, gold-grill-wearing Santa, Christmas trees with beer cans as ornaments, guitar-smashing elves and fire-breathing reindeer). It’s melodic, catchy, and you’ll definitely hear this on the radio, in like, two minutes. It starts off innocently enough with a little bass plucking, but it really becomes a banger when the drums kick in. We can thank Louis Bell and Frank Dukes for the masterful beat.
Before I dropped Stoney none of y’all really cared
Now they always say, “Congratulations,” to the kid
And this is not a 40, but I’m pourin’ out this shit
Used to have a lot, but I got more now
Made another hit ’cause I got bored now
