Ever since “White Iverson” blew up in 2015, Post Malone has constantly been dominating the charts. According to Rolling Stone, “Beerbongs and Bentleys” is one of 2019’s top albums. With this abundant success, a short break would be expected from him, but Post Malone shows no signs of stopping anytime soon.

Post Malone dropped his third studio album on Sept. 6 with over 17 songs, collabing with popular artists such as SZA, Travis Scott, Ozzy Osbourne and Meek Mill. “Hollywood’s Bleeding” comes with a big diversity of beats assuring a great album to listen to.

The first song, “Hollywood’s Bleeding”, addresses how toxic Hollywood is. According to Post Malone in an interview conducted by Spotify, it seems to “suck the life out of you.” The album brings out a big range of different moods with songs like “Take What You Want”, talking about a broken relationship, and “Saint Tropez”, talking about lavish lifestyles.

“Hollywood’s Bleeding” has come in with not much press following it, but the album is expected to exceed in sales. According to Billboard, it is expected to get a total of over 475,000 unit sales in the United States for the release week. As of Sept. 13, Post Malone has achieved a second album on U.K’s No. 1 album, “Beer Bongs and Bentleys” climbing to the No. 1 spot in 2018.
