TALK ABOUT A "ROCKSTAR"

Republic's Post Malone—currently the most-streamed artist in the world with over 3b collective streams—now occupies the #1 and #2 spots on Spotify and Apple Music's overall U.S. charts with "rockstar" f/21 Savage and "I Fall Apart," respectively.

To rehash, in less than a month, “rockstar” has amassed 160m+ streams on Spotify, where it's gone #1 in 25 countries. The hit also shattered Apple Music’s one-week record total for a single song with 25m streams worldwide and 22.5 in the U.S.

In Canada, it recently celebrated having the highest first-week streaming debut ever. There, the track broke the single-week streaming record with 5.3m+ streams.

The rapper and potential Best New Artist Grammy contender—currently out as the headliner of his sold-out Stoney Tour—has also become one of just six artists to hit #1 on the U.K. Spotify Chart in the first five days during 2017.

"rockstar" is off his upcoming sophomore album, Beerbongs & Bentleys—expected 2018—while "I Fall Apart" is featured on platinum debut Stoney. The latter also houses the five-times platinum "Congratulations" f/Quavo, his four-times platinum breakout hit "White Iverson" and platinum songs "Go Flex" and "Too Young."

Meanwhile at HITS, it's more like Beerbongs & Corollas.
