10. “92 EXPLORER”

9. “MONTA” FT. LIL YACHTY
This mixtape launch doesn’t precisely really feel like a Post Malone observe, which is probably what makes it so fascinating. The first few notes the Cashio beat might need you considering Young Thug ad-lib is imminent. To his credit score, Malone makes it his personal. The music’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 partially as a consequence of a vigorous function from Lil Yachty. “I obtained extra hoes than Elvis,” Yachty says part-way into his verse, which tells you nearly every little thing you must find out about this music.
eight. “GO FLEX”
As the title would possibly indicate, this observe is about flexing. And to a sure diploma a couple of need 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 great observe to play if one finds themselves in a setting that has the latter. “Go Flex” radiates Post Malone’s signature vitality, and endears you to his need to flee his environment in favor hanging together with his crew.
7. “RICH AND SAD”
The loneliness right here is haunting. The begin the refrain has Malone’s vocals mangled to the same octave as Swae Lee, an unnatural bounce that emphasizes his grief. “Rich and Sad” finds Malone musing on how his riches and fame are ineffective in relation to holding a liked 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 battle that makes it one essentially 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 business and his sense being entitled to success. He talks concerning the feeling 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 yr later, is a testomony to the 2’s foreseeable longevity within the rap recreation. It doesn’t make for a foul competition efficiency, both.
5. “I FALL APART”
The begin the observe finds Post with an virtually gospel-sounding croon. What follows is the tragedy heartbreak, 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 particular person 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 music title and extra a state thoughts for anybody in a post-breakup headspace.
four. “BETTER NOW”
Alas, the observe that obtained a considerably random praise from Taylor Swift backstage on the 2018 Billboard Music Awards.

It’s exhausting taking some accountability, however more durable nonetheless to acknowledge that you simply’re the issue.
three. “ROCKSTAR” ft. 21 SAVAGE
It’s curious music speaking about “feeling like a rockstar” can be so moody. More Led Zeppelin than AC/DC, “Rockstar” options Post’s signature warbling vocals using a wave ominous synths and a smattering entice drums. It’s an ode to drugs and blowing smoke, with a bridge that feels virtually depressed. And someway, 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 fashion like second nature.
2. “WHITE IVERSON”
You should all the time give credit score the place credit score is due. Without “White Iverson” there can be no Post Malone.

The music would go on to peak at #14 on the Billboard Hot 100 and go 5x platinum. It’s not tough to see why the observe was such a significant success. It’s a laid-back, Drake-esque strategy 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 three years craft-honing. It showcases his melancholy and lulling vocals paired with a spacey beat that provides each himself and visitor Ty Dolla $ign ample room to point out f. The subjects dialogue are the same old suspects – jewellery, designer manufacturers, and enticing ladies – however Post someway makes it refreshing. It’s not a reinvention the wheel, merely a change rims. Oh, and it peaked at #1. So there’s that.
