Artist Biography

Post Malone, aka Austin Post, is a diamond-certified hitmaker of both rap and mainstream pop. He was raised in Dallas and wanted to join a band as a kid thanks to the video game Guitar Hero. However, he changed his mind and wanted to become an MC after his dad gave him a copy of Terror Squad’s “Lean Back.” Post Malone hung out with the Dallas crew IRAS until he relocated to Los Angeles. He put some braids in his hair and dropped the track “White Iverson” in 2015 which got a million views within a month. He signed with Republic later that year. In 2016, he released his debut album Stoney which featured artists including Justin Bieber, Quavo, and Kehlani. The album peaked at number four on the Billboard 200 and would later go multi-platinum. Following this album, Post Malone released two chart-topping singles “Rockstar” with 21 Savage and “Psycho” with Ty Dolla $ign. Combined, these singles went 13-times platinum and became part of his second album Beerbongs & Bentleys which discussed Post Malone’s rise to fame and the trappings that came with it. The album was nominated for Album of the Year at the 2019 Grammy Awards. Before his next album, Post Malone did the pop single “Sunflower” for the Spider Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack which became over 50-times platinum certified worldwide. His next hit “Wow” came later in 2019 helping put Post Malone in the Hot 100’s. The single was part of his third album Hollywood’s Bleeding which featured Da Baby, Future, Halsey, Meek Mill, Lil Baby, SZA, Travis Scott, and even the legendary Ozzy Osbourne. The album topped the Billboard 200 for five non-consecutive weeks. In 2020, Post Malone did a cover of Hootie & the Blowfish’s “Only Wanna Be with You” for the Pokemon 25 album. The next year he released his fourth album Twelve Carat Toothache which featured Doja Cat, the Kid Laroi, Roddy Ricch, the Weeknd, and Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold. In 2023, Post Malone released a hits collected called The Diamond Collection which was followed by his latest album release AUSTIN the same year.
