Recent ‘beerbongs & bentleys’ singles ‘Psycho’ and ‘Candy Paint’ take fourth and fifth retrospectively, wiht just over 300 million streams on both tracks. However, both tracks were released as singles, so have had more time to pick up streams. ‘Congratulations’ (711 million streams) and ‘I Fall Apart’ (483 million streams) from his debut album ‘Stoney’ remain his second and third most streamed tracks of all time.
Post Malone has also picked up features on 23 influential playlists with more than 10,000 followers in the past seven days. This will drive his total playlist following this week, which currently stands at over 42 million, a global ranking of third (Instrumental).
