Hollywood’s Bleeding gives Post Malone second number one album
Post Malone releases “Hollywood’s Bleeding,” his third full-length album. The album has features from various musical artists ranging from Ozzy Osbourne to Meek Mill.
Post Malone’s third full-length album “Hollywood’s Bleeding” combines elements of synth-pop, rock, and hip-hop making this his most distinctive album to date. The album debuted at number one giving Post Malone his second number one album. “Hollywood’s Bleeding” was also the most streamed album during its first week after release.
The album's title track is the first song on the record, which is dark and mysterious sounding with lyrics pertaining to the pitfalls of Hollywood fame and Malone’s distaste and struggle with the fast-pace lifestyle. The album has a mix of melancholy songs such as “Die for Me,” featuring Halsey and Future, and “Take What You Want,” featuring rock legend Ozzy Osbourne and Travis Scott.
The album contains more upbeat tracks as well with “Sunflower” featured on the “Into the Spider-Verse" soundtrack and “I’m Gonna Be,” a song that Post Malone says is about living one’s truth, implied by the “I’m gonna be what I want” lyric echoing in the chorus. The album blends dark despair and euphoric, up-beat tracks that give the album a roller coaster effect of roaring highs and desolate lows, a unique blend that will interest any listener.
The album is distinctly Malone-esque but offers a mature sound compared to his previous albums. Malone frequently collaborates with other artists from varying genres and this album showcases that featuring verses from artists including Young Thug, DaBaby, Halsey, Meek Mill, SZA, and Swae Lee. “Hollywood’s Bleeding” is yet another successful release from Malone and quite possibly his most ambitious attempt at blending several musical genres into one album.
