NEW YORK, NY (October 11, 2017) – Once again living up to the title of “The Most Streamed Artist in the World,” Post Malone captures the top two spots across Spotify and Apple Music. The multiplatinum chart-topping Dallas, TX artist claims #1 with “rockstar” [feat. 21 Savage] (produced by Tank God & Louis Bell) and #2 with “I Fall Apart” (produced by Illangelo) on both the Spotify US Top 200 Chart and The Apple Music Overall Top Songs Chart.
In under a month, “rockstar” has already generated over 160 million-plus Spotify streams and staked out the #1 spot on Spotify in 25 countries, while smashing Apple Music’s one-week record total for a single song with 25 million streams worldwide and 22.5 million U.S. streams. Moreover, “I Fall Apart”—from the RIAA platinum-certified Stoney [Republic Records]—has become a sensation following the breakout of a viral video.
Making history, in Canada, “rockstar” has achieved “the all-time highest first-week streaming debut in Canada” as well as “broken the single week streaming record with over 5.3 million streams.” Post also joined a prestigious group of “only six artists to hit #1 on the UK Spotify Chart in the first 5 days during 2017.” Stoney has spent 43 weeks in the Top 25 of the Billboard Top 200 and 43 consecutive weeks as a Top 10 Streaming Album since its December 2016 release.
Post is currently on the road, headlining his sold-out Stoney Tour which features Smokepurpp as support. Check out the full itinerary below.
Post Malone’s debut album, the 2016 powerhouse RIAA Certified Platinum debut Stoney, has made him the MOST STREAMED NEW ARTIST with over 3 Billion Streams globally.
