Post has develop into one thing of a family identify prior to now few years, particularly with the discharge of his newest album Beerbongs and Bentleys.

Here are our prime ten picks for one of the best Post Malone songs, to date. For the sake of this listing, we’re sticking to Post as the principle artist on the observe (sorry, ‘Jackie Chan’).
10. “92 EXPLORER”
One factor Post Malone excels at is making catchy-as-hell hooks. That, together with a number of gifted producers in his nook, quantities to a hefty serving of bops on the common. "92 Explorer" is a main instance. London On Da Track comes by way of with a bouncy, spacious beat that offers Malone permission to coast together with strains about shopping for Gucci socks and dropping "forty G’s" on the infamous Rodeo Drive.
9. “MONTA” FT. LIL YACHTY
This mixtape launch doesn’t precisely really feel like a Post Malone observe, which is maybe what makes it so fascinating. The first few notes of the Cashio beat may need you pondering Young Thug ad-lib is imminent. To his credit score, Malone makes it his personal. The track’s title comes from Monta Ellis, a second-round draft decide for Golden State again in 2005. It’s a basic tackle the "baller anthem," however nonetheless succeeds partly as a result of a energetic function from Lil Yachty. “I bought extra hoes than Elvis,” Yachty says part-way into his verse, which tells you nearly every part you could find out about this track.
eight. “GO FLEX”
As the title may suggest, this observe is about flexing. And to a sure diploma a few want to flee the dramas posed by the ladies in his life. The lyrics function an overt obsession with gold chains and marijuana, undoubtedly making this a superb observe to play if one finds themselves in a setting that has the latter. “Go Flex” radiates Post Malone’s signature power, and endears you to his want to flee his environment in favor of hanging together with his crew.
7. “RICH AND SAD”
The loneliness right here is haunting. The begin of the refrain has Malone’s vocals mangled to the same octave as Swae Lee, an unnatural soar that emphasizes his grief. "Rich and Sad" finds Malone musing on how his riches and fame are ineffective in terms of holding a beloved one round. It’s a uncooked, emotional, and weak expertise, an artist bearing his soul with regrets over by no means being sufficient. It’s a relatable wrestle that makes it probably the most partaking songs on Malone’s second studio album.
6. “CONGRATULATIONS” FT. QUAVO
On the victory lap "Congratulations," Malone dives deep into his feelings, reflecting on making it within the trade and his sense of being entitled to success. He talks concerning the feeling of his mother seeing him on TV, driving in Bentleys, and dealing nonstop to make it. The help from Quavo, who’s group Migos would discover immense success with their hit "Bad And Boujee" a 12 months later, is a testomony to the 2’s foreseeable longevity within the rap sport. It doesn’t make for a foul competition efficiency, both.
5. "I FALL APART"
The begin of the observe finds Post with an nearly gospel-sounding croon. What follows is the tragedy of heartbreak, of being “scarred” and damaged after being left by somebody you trusted. There has but to be a conclusive scientific examine on break-ups, however the common individual will swear on their life that bodily ache is concerned. Evidently, Malone feels it to be true, expressing his shock and grief at being alone. “I Fall Apart” is much less a track title and extra a frame of mind for anybody in a post-breakup headspace.
four. "BETTER NOW"
Alas, the observe that bought a considerably random praise from Taylor Swift backstage on the 2018 Billboard Music Awards. In some ways "Better Now" is the sequel to "I Fall Apart," presumably from the alternate perspective; Malone is much less indignant than remorseful, stating plainly “I didn't imagine that it might finish.” He acknowledges some blame within the matter, noting that he “by no means meant to allow you to down,” making it appear as if he was maybe the explanation the connection didn’t end up. It’s arduous taking some accountability, however tougher nonetheless to acknowledge that you just’re the issue.
three. “ROCKSTAR” ft. 21 SAVAGE
It’s curious track speaking about "feeling like a rockstar" could be so moody. More Led Zeppelin than AC/DC, "Rockstar" options Post’s signature warbling vocals driving a wave of ominous synths and a smattering of entice drums. It’s an ode to drugs and blowing smoke, with a bridge that feels nearly depressed. And one way or the other, it really works, the uncommon observe that is versatile sufficient to slot in a hype setting or laid again, marijuana-infused vibe. 21 Savage delivers a characteristically chest-thumping verse, mixing to Post’s type like second nature.
2. "WHITE IVERSON"
You should all the time give credit score the place credit score is due. Without “White Iverson” there could be no Post Malone. The track was initially uploaded to Post’s Soundcloud in February of 2015, however would ultimately land a significant launch from Republic Records in August of that 12 months. The track would go on to peak at #14 on the Billboard Hot 100 and go 5x platinum. It’s not troublesome to see why the observe was such a significant success. It’s a laid-back, Drake-esque method to rapping, maybe extra centered on the general sonic aesthetic than precise bars.
1. "PSYCHO" FT. TY DOLLA $IGN
This is the quintessential Post Malone observe, the end result of three years of craft-honing. It showcases his melancholy and lulling vocals paired with a spacey beat that offers each himself and visitor Ty Dolla $ign ample room to point out off. The subjects of dialogue are the standard suspects - jewellery, designer manufacturers, and enticing girls - however Post one way or the other makes it refreshing. It’s not a reinvention of the wheel, merely a change of rims. Oh, and it peaked at #1. So there’s that.
