Post Malone Has Put Out FOUR Studio Albums Since 2016!
Although he started his music career in 2011, his career didn’t pick up steam until his 2015 debut single, “White Inversion.” The song peaked at the number 14 spot on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. After its success, Malone signed a recording contract with Republic Records and released his debut studio album, “Stoney” in 2016. The song contained his hit single, “Congratulations,” which set the record at 77 weeks on top of the U.S. Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
In 2018, Malone released his second album, “Beerbongs & Bentleys,” which debuted at the number one spot on the U.S. Billboard 200 charts and set several streaming records. The album was nominated for Album of the Year at the 2018 Grammy Awards and contained the popular singles “Psycho” and “Rockstar.”
That same year, he and Swae Lee also released the song “Sunflower,” which was featured on the soundtrack for Marvel’s “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.” The song was also included on Malone’s third album, “Hollywood’s Bleeding,” which was released in 2019. His single “Circles” set the record for 39 weeks in the top ten on the Hot 100 chart.
Last month, Malone released his fourth album, “Twelve Carat Toothache,” to critical acclaim.
Post Malone is one of the best-selling artists in the world, with over 80 million albums reportedly sold during his career. Malone has won many accolades for his work, including ten Billboard Music Awards, three American Music Awards, one MTV Video Music Award, and six Grammy Award nominations.
