Post Malone Shatters Spotify Records With New Album, Ties Major Whitney Houston Billboard Feat

Published: Sunday 29th Apr 2018 by Rashad

Despite an era marred by slams of being of a “culture vulture” and dismissive of hip hop history, rapper Post Malone‘s newest album – ‘beerbongs & Bentleys’ – is seeing little obstacle to slow its course to the top of the Billboard 200’s week after next.

His sophomore set – featuring the chart-topping hit ‘rockstar’ and lined with guest appearances from the likes of 21 Savage, Swae Lee, Nicki Minaj, Ty Dolla $ign, G-Eazy, and more – is already eligible for platinum certification thanks to some major streaming milestones it accomplished ahead of its April 27th debut.  As if those massive numbers weren’t enough, Spotify took to press over the weekend to confirm the project has shattered its one-day streaming records – a record, mind you, just set last week by fellow emcee J. Cole‘s ‘KOD’ album (click here to read more on that).

Click inside to see just how Malone achieved the feat and see how his overall success has also seen him threaten one of Whitney Houston‘s enduring chart records:

The numbers above do not include actual sales or streams from other outlets, but will be factored into the emcee’s first week figures once calculated.  As of time reported, ‘beerbongs & Bentleys’ is #1 on iTunes sales chart.

If that’s not enough to celebrate, Malone recently learned his debut album – ‘Stoney’ – has tied a milestone of late pop icon Whitney Houston.  According to Billboard:

“…[‘Stoney’] ties Whitney Houston’s 1985 debut for the second-most weeks in the top 10 of the ranking…

Stoney and Whitney Houston have each spent 64 weeks in the top tier. The two LPs rank behind only Michael Jackson’s Thriller, with 74 weeks in the top 10 in 1983-84.”

As of time reported, Houston’s debut (featuring the chart-topping hits ‘How Will I Know,’ ‘Saving All My Love For You,’ and ‘Greatest Love of All’) has sold over 25 million copies worldwide and is listed among the best-selling albums of all time.

UK fans can catch Post Malone when he blazes the stage at the 2018 Wireless Festival on July 6th. He joins a star-studded line-up, which includes the likes of J.Cole, Migos, Big Sean, and JHus.

      Exactly you cannot compare music sales from the 80s and 90s to music sales of today, where music sells for pennies on the dollar. 80s and 90s charts came from pure sales. Someone should do a dollar comparison instead of a “chart” comparison.

    Bad Breath & Dirty Bath Water being compared to a time when people used to queue outside record shops for new releases cannot be compared to this day and age when people press a button and music has become as disposable as fashion and food.
    Although not a fan, i am happy for his success but not when they try to disrespect a time when music was just altogether better across all genres and actual talent prevailed.
    All these greats might be outsold and placed by these newfangled ways to count sales, but in another 20 years their songs will continue to stand the test of time whilst these newbies will be trying to remind people what the hits were.
