Post Malone’s star continues to rise with the debut of his latest single “Goodbyes,” ft.Young Thug which became an instant hit after its Fourth of July release. This past March, “Wow.” peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Post Malone’s sixth top 10 single.
At the end of 2018, “Sunflower” was featured in the Oscar-winning film Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse and ultimately hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100. The anthemic song features the Runaway Tour’s special guest, Swae Lee. Post Malone released his Grammy nominated sophomore album, beerbongs & bentleys, in 2018, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and is certified triple Platinum by the RIAA.
About Post Malone
Post Malone stirs a mix of genres into his own sonic sound that’s both intoxicating and invigorating. His RIAA three-time Platinum certified debut album, Stoney, led the genre-bending Dallas, TX artist to his first top 10 Billboard 200 and first #1 R&B/hip-hop album while being the “#1 Debut Hip-Hop Artist of 2016”. 2019 has been packed with one milestone and achievement after another for Post Malone. “Congratulations” has been certified Diamond by the RIAA. According to Nielsen Music, his second full-length, beerbongs & bentleys, emerges on the mid-year top 10 albums (based on overall equivalent album units) and he earns two entries on the mid-year top 10 selling digital songs, namely “Sunflower (Spider-Man: Into the spiderverse)” with Swae Lee at #3 and “Wow.” at #6. “Sunflower” also lands at #2 among the top 10 on-demand song streams (audio and video combined) and mid-year top 10 on-demand audio streams as “Wow.” sits at #7 on both charts.
About Swae Lee
Swae Lee has made a name for himself outside of Southern hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd and is a force to be reckoned with both within and beyond the hip-hop world. Tracks such as French Montana’s “Unforgettable” show off his singing chops and his impressive list of writing credits includes the hook to Beyoncé’s “Formation.” For Rae Sremmurd’s upcoming project, Swae and Jxmmi will present a three-part album consisting of a duo side of the album and parts with each of the brothers exclusively and allowing for more Swae melodies to take shape. The first Swae track released off the album, “Hurt to Look,” continues the energetic production that Swae is known for, but shows off a tender, moodier side to Swae’s singing. The much more serious, emotional ballad has that characteristic Swae hook, but implements a groovier and comparably chilled backdrop. It’s a song to “make you feel some kind of way,” as Swae describes it while explaining that each track is a whole feeling, often mellow and “easy on the ears.” Above all, however, Swae insists that the music is meant to be “feel good” and both embodies and advocates for a positive life outlook. Swae’s goals for his music as universal and far-reaching—with projected listeners ranging from doctors to lawyers to kids and “whatever lifestyle you live,” as Swae puts it—but entirely unique to what is popular and being produced today are not far off. The album proposes to position Swae as a heavy weight, unpredictable musician producing serious music that still has the enjoyable, turn up element that Rae Sremmurd is known for. And that is exactly what Swae’s music fulfills: a serendipitous unpredictability that is only predictable in the sense that Swae, with all his Gemini-crooning selves, always delivers.
About Tyla Yaweh
A new kind of Rockstar, Tyla Yaweh defies everything, even genre. He seamlessly merges R&B, hip-hop and pop without apology. As a result, he has quietly become a phenomenon. Beyond racking up over 100 million-plus cumulative streams globally and landing on the cover of coveted Spotify playlists like Signed XOXO, the Orlando-born and Los Angeles-based 24-year-old disruptor has performed alongside everyone from Post Malone to Jaden Smith and Saint JHN and collaborated with the likes of French Montana, Ski Mask The Slump God, Juice WRLD and more. Not to mention, he received acclaim from Complex, Hypebeast, Billboard, Pigeons and Planes, Wonderland, HotNewHipHop and more.
He continues to make a name for himself on the road, having recently given rousing performances at the likes of Governor’s Ball, Firefly, Bonnaroo and more, with Lollapalooza, Reading and Leeds, Life is Beautiful and more set for later this summer. Breaking rules and boundaries all at once, he’s primed to explode in 2019 with the aptly titled project, Heart Full Of Rage.
