Hip-Hop Artist Post Malone Beats Out Drake For Most First Week Streams With His New Album

Until last week, hip-hop heavyweight Drake held the record for most first week streams for his most recent album (though he calls it a 'playlist,' whatever that means). But, a new record has been set by relative rap new-comer - Post Malone - whose sophomore album, 'Beerbongs & Bentleys', topped Drizzy's record by almost 50,000 plays, and was streamed 431 million times in its first week, reports Rolling Stone.

Posty can also claim the best week sales of the year, seeing the most sales of any album since Taylor Swift released Reputation in November of last year. Oh, and 'Beerbongs & Bentleys' debuted at no. 1 on the Billboard 200, and then went platinum 3 days after release, so there's that too.

You can check the Kill Bill inspired video for the album's lead single "Rockstar" above.


In the old days, weed "branding" was defined by plastic baggies, pot leaf imagery, tie-dye, and in some cases, imagery of conventionally hot girls in bikinis or booty shorts. The messages back then revolved around weed as a stereotypically male stoner pastime, whilst alienating women, or those who didn't appreciate the strip club aesthetic in connection to their medicinal or recreational products. But in recent years, and especially in legal states, this has all begun to change.
