Through this blog I’ve been exposed to new albums as they are released, which helps me stay current with the latest hits in the media. Post Malone’s newest album Hollywood’s Bleeding, which was released on September 6th 2019 is no exception. With the album featuring big names such as, Travis Scott, SZA and even Ozzie Osbourne just to name a few, it was so no surprise when this project became a huge hit.
Super official ranking system
- Take What You Want (feat. Ozzie Osbourne & Travis Scott)
It opens with Ozzie’s unmistakable voice as he sings “I feel you crumble in my arms, down to your heart of stone…” and as the song develops, I was surprised at how well all three artists were able to mesh together.
- A Thousand Bad Times
This one is really upbeat and catchy, which I think makes sense since he is trying to stay optimistic and look on the brighter side of things.
- Die for Me (feat. Future & Halsey)
Taking a lyric like “I had a really bad feeling you been lying to me” and adding it to a fast, fun beat makes this song a number 1 contender for a post-breakup playlist. Halsey’s part solidifies my opinion that people will be blasting this song from their speakers when they feel they’ve been wronged. With lyrics like “I sold 15 million copies of a break up note” how could it not be on someone’s playlist?
- Hollywood’s Bleeding
The titular song of the album, this left nothing for me to be disappointed about. There are definitely stronger songs on the album, but it’s still a great song.
I really liked the “Allergic!” call out that occurs in this song, so it had to be on this totally official ranking system.
I didn’t mention the songs I’ve already come to love before the album was released; Goodbyes (feat. Young Thug), Wow and Sunflower with Swae Lee. I wanted to focus on the songs that were introduced with the release of the final product i.e the album.
Hollywood’s Bleeding is overall a really strong album that is going to stay on the charts for awhile, I’m sure.
