It’s finally here! Post Malone has dropped his highly anticipated third studio album, Hollywood’s Bleeding. With singles “Wow”, “Goodbyes” featuring Young Thug, “Circles”, and the chart topping hit, “Sunflower” featuring Swae Lee, the album is filled with consistent vocals and modernized hip-hop production throughout.
Post Malone seems to have this special talent to create hit song after hit song. Heck, he even says “I got so many hits, can’t remember them all” on the album’s 8th track, “On The Road” featuring Meek Mill and Lil Baby. Debuting at the number one spot on Billboard’s 200 album chart, and with four songs in the top ten on the Billboard hot 100 chart, it seems like I’m not the only one enjoying this project.
Standout tracks for me, include: “Take What You Want” featuring Ozzy Osborne and Travis Scott, and the opening title track, “Hollywood’s Bleeding”. This feature heavy project is almost guaranteed to continue bringing in impressive sales and streaming numbers, just like its predecessor and previous Post Malone effort, “Beerbongs & Bentley’s”.
Despite my love so far for the project, there are songs on here that I do wish were longer. It’s not that they feel incomplete by any means, but in cases of songs such as “Internet” I believe an additional verse could’ve added a lot to the track. This song in particular feels like an interlude throughout. The original track leaked (ironically enough) on the internet a few months back and features Kanye West as it was originally rumored to be an upcoming song from his now infamously teased “Yandhi” project. I would’ve liked to hear Kanye’s verse on the album’s final mix… aside from that I really don’t have anything to critique about this album. It’s just really solid overall. Hell, my one “complaint” is that I want MORE Posty!
Post Malone’s songs just seem to continuously grow on me so I know I’ll be playing this album a ton in the upcoming months. Are you feeling this album? What are your favorite tracks? Let us know!
