Post Malone and 21 Savage are breaking records as “Rockstar” has broken Apple Music’s new streaming record. They’ve gained over 25 million plays in the first week. The song is produced by Louis Bell and Tank, it’s the first track released off of Post’s sophomore album Beerbongs and Bentleys.
This is the latest streaming victory for Malone, who racked up over 1 billion streams and four platinum singles from his debut album Stoney. Apple Music has a lengthy history of working with Post Malone, even before he got signed to Republic Records.
“We just have a long history of supporting Post Malone, even before he got signed. ‘White Iverson’ was being heavily supported in iTunes — that song is old enough that Apple Music wasn’t even live yet. We were supporting him heavily back then, and we did the same thing with the Stoney project last year.”
The song got prime placement on The A-List, It’s Lit, and #OnRepeat, Apple Music’s biggest hip-hop playlists.
