After the release of his newest album, Hollywood’s Bleeding, rapper Post Malone has become one of six musicians to have four songs in the top ten charts of the Hot 100. Malone is among artists like The Beatles, Drake, and Lil Wayne who have also achieved this major accomplishment. Not only did he manage to have this quartet in the top ten charts, but his album is also number one on the Billboard 200.

The four songs included in the top ten are “Goodbyes”, “Circles”, “Take What You Want”, and “Sunflower”. Hollywood’s Bleeding also debuted as the largest streaming total all year with every song landing on the Billboard Hot 100. In addition to being widely streamed around the world, these songs are also very popular around the halls of Mercy. Senior Julia Coffman is very impressed with Post Malone’s new album.

“I couldn’t wait to hear his new album,” said Coffman. “And when I finally could listen to it, I was obsessed.”

Coffman’s favorite song on the album is “Take What You Want” featuring Ozzy Osbourne, which appears at number eight on the top ten charts, but she loves all the songs. She has never been disappointed by his albums and appreciates his ability to make a catchy chorus in every song.

“All of his songs are mellow, but never boring. I’m not surprised he has four songs in the top ten,” said Coffman.

With Hollywood’s Bleeding being Post Malone’s second album at number one on the Billboard 200, one can only imagine what he has in store for the future.
