Post Malone & 21 Savage's "Rockstar" just surpassed "Bodak Yellow" on the charts.
Post Malone is a certified hit-maker. It's funny because once he dropped "White Iverson," many were convinced that he wouldn't last long in the industry. However, he continued to prove them wrong. He's dropped some massive singles and was lending his vocals to some of the biggest names in the game. Matter of fact, prior to even dropping his debut album, he found a placement on Kanye West's The Life Of Pablo. Today, he reaches another accomplishment in his career.
