It has been more than two years since Post Malone became a music sensation with the release of his first single “White Iverson” (which has been certified platinum by the RIAA eight times as of April 22, 2021). In 1996, Stoney’s debut album (which achieved 5x platinum with the RIAA) marked the beginning of his musical development and he hasn’t looked back since. Post Malone has carved his own path through the years and has become a household name; he will only become bigger and better moving forward. While Posty hasn’t been heard from since his album Hollywood’s Bleeding was released back in 2019, he returns this month (June 3) with his fourth studio album Twelve Carat Toothache, which he says is his most honest work so far.
Post Malone recently opened up about staying away from social media, dealing with writer’s block and more while sitting down with Zane Lowe. “Have I made any changes in my perspective or have I made any changes in my mental state to distance myself from that has benefited my life in a positive way?” This was my statement. The thing that matters is that you’re comfortable with what you’re doing because you’ve got to be comfortable with what you’re doing if you want to succeed. In addition, he doesn’t feel very confident with social media,” he said about staying away from it as much as possible.
Post Malone describes the record’s placement as follows: “I haven’t been in my bag for a long time, and I am trying to acquire it again.” Roddy Ricch appears on the album’s lead feature. “We knew exactly what we wanted to say, and we knew exactly how we wanted to express our thoughts, both in that song as well as in that particular moment of the album,” stated Posty.
