Austin Richard Post, more commonly known by his stage name Post Malone, is an American singer-songwriter, rapper, record producer and actor. Known for his introspective songwriting and laconic vocal style, Post has gained acclaim for bending a range of genres including country, grunge, hip hop and R&B.
He first attained recognition in 2015 following the release of his debut single “White Iverson”. He subsequently signed a recording contract with Republic Records. His stage name is derived from his last name and from a rap name generator.
His debut album Stoney (2016) made his name in the industry, and his second album, Beerbongs & Bentleys (2018) debuted as number one on the US Billboard Hot 100. It was nominated for Album of the year at the 2018 Grammy Awards. His third album, Hollywood's bleeding, explored indie pop and was released in late 2019.
In 2018, Post collaborated with Swae Lee on the song “Sunflower” for the soundtrack to the film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which reached the top of the Hot 100.
Here are some of his most streamed songs.
1. White Iverson
It peaked at number 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart in the United States. The single is widely known as the first that gained him mainstream attention.
2. Sunflower Ft. Swae Lee
From Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, this is one song that really hasn’t gotten old, and probably never will.
3. Rockstar ft. 21 Savage
If Post Malone was big after his debut album, this song made him huge. In 2018, this artist came out swinging with 21 Savage alongside him.
4. Too Young
This song was dedicated to Christian Taylor and rappers A$AP Yams and Chinx, who died prior to the song's release.
5. Better Now
The song was nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards.
It was also nominated for Record of the Year and Song of the Year at the 2021 Grammy Awards.
7. Congratulations Ft. Quavo
With Quavo at his side, ‘Congratulations’ is a hit that will always have a place in all fans’ hearts.
This song received a nomination at the Billboard Music Awards for Top Rap Song, and this 2019 beat from Hollywood’s Bleeding was certainly worthy of the honor.
9. Psycho Ft. Ty Dolla $Ign
This is the song that everyone will immediately start singing to as soon as it starts to play. Lyrically, the song discusses Malone's lifestyle and explores the theme of excessive fame and trust issues.
10. Goodbyes (Feat. Young Thug)
Post Malone is pretty well-known for having a featured artist in his songs, and most of his top ten includes one. This 2019 hit is from Hollywood's Bleeding and is perfect for any occasion.
