Post Malone looks to recreate the same success he had with his last single on "Psycho."
Post Malone has been rising steadily since the success of "White Iverson", celebrating his first number 1 song in the 21 Savage-assisted "Rockstar," which debuted at number 2 behind Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow." His recent collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign could end up being the singer's first song to debut at the top spot, as long as it beats out some heavy competition. Drake's "God's Plan" has been sitting atop the Billboard charts since it was released, shattering records and appearing as though it would not fade out, at least in the near future. If Post has anything to say about it, though, "Psycho" will knock Drake down to claim the Billboard throne.
Since the song was debuted, it seemed to have the potential to be Posty's next buzzworthy track, following up the success of "Rockstar" and "Congratulations." According to Pigeons & Planes, the song has been tearing it up on streaming sites, jumping over "God's Plan" in the United States on Spotify and sitting at number 2 globally. Apple Music is seeing similar success from the Post Malone single, with reports that the track will break "Rockstar"'s first-week numbers, which is considerable since the song broke the service's initial-week streaming record.
The Billboard numbers will be unveiled in the coming days and we will be able to judge exactly how well the song is being received nationwide. So far, it looks like it may be a lock for Post to finally capture his first number 1 debut with "Psycho."
