Twenty-three-year-old music artist Post Malone has had 26 Billboard Hot 100 hits since 2017; six have been in the top 10, and three have hit number one. Riding the line between pop-rap, rock, and hip-hop, Post Malone has been called “one of the most popular musicians in the country” by Rolling Stone magazine. His 2018 sophomore album, Beerbongs & Bentleys, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and earned him a Grammy nomination and a performance at the Grammys with the Red Hot Chili Peppers in 2019.
Our Take on Post Malone
If you’ve heard the recent hit “Better Now” on the radio, you might think his music is tame; this song has no inappropriate language or sexual references. He mentions alcohol once by nickname, but most preteens won’t even recognize the moniker. Nevertheless, however catchy and clean that song may seem to be, don’t be fooled. Post Malone’s music is generally in line with other modern-day rap and hip-hop—it’s filled with inappropriate language, references to alcohol, and sexual references. We don’t recommend it for preteens.
