As it stands now, Malone’s sophomore studio effort holds the record for the most streams in a single week in the U.S., with over 431 million streams to its credit. That beats the previous record-holder by over 50 million streams, which puts it in a distant first place. It might be a while before any title is able to beat Beerbongs & Bentleys…though with new albums from the likes of Drake, Nicki Minaj and Kanye West coming soon, that figure could become a thing of the past fairly soon.

On the ARIA Singles Chart, Malone is dethroned by Drake, whose “Nice For What” (Republic/Universal) returns to the top, rising 2-1. With his latest title, the Canadian rapper has topped 13 out of 20 ARIA Singles Charts so far in 2018. Malone’s “Better Now” slips 1-2 and is the best-placed of his 11 tracks in the top 50, down from 17 tracks in the previous frame.

[Chorus]
You probably think that you are better now, better now
You only say that ’cause I’m not around, not around
You know I never meant to let you down, let you down
Woulda gave you anything, woulda gave you everything
You know I say that I am better now, better now
I only say that ’cause you’re not around, not around
You know I never meant to let you down, let you down
Woulda gave you anything, woulda gave you everything

[Verse 1]
I did not believe that it would end, no
Everything came second to the Benzo
You’re not even speakin’ to my friends, no
You knew all my uncles and my aunts though
Twenty candles, blow ’em out and open your eyes
We were lookin’ forward to the rest of our lives
Used to keep my picture posted by your bedside
Now it’s in your dresser with the socks you don’t like
And I’m rollin’, rollin’, rollin’, rollin’
With my brothers like it’s Jonas, Jonas
Drinkin’ Henny and I’m tryna forget
But I can’t get this shit outta my head

[Chorus]
You probably think that you are better now, better now
You only say that ’cause I’m not around, not around
You know I never meant to let you down, let you down
Woulda gave you anything, woulda gave you everything
You know I say that I am better now, better now
I only say that ’cause you’re not around, not around
You know I never meant to let you down, let you down
Woulda gave you anything, woulda gave you everything

[Verse 2]
I seen you with your other dude
He seemed like he was pretty cool
I was so broken over you
Life it goes on, what can you do?
I just wonder what it’s gonna take
Another foreign or a bigger chain
Because no matter how my life has changed
I keep on looking back on better days

[Chorus]
You probably think that you are better now, better now
You only say that ’cause I’m not around, not around
You know I never meant to let you down, let you down
Woulda gave you anything, woulda gave you everything
You know I say that I am better now, better now
I only say that ’cause you’re not around, not around
You know I never meant to let you down, let you down
Woulda gave you anything, woulda gave you everything
Oh-oh

[Bridge]
I promise
I swear to you, I’ll be okay
You’re only the love of my life

[Chorus]
You probably think that you are better now, better now
You only say that ’cause I’m not around, not around
You know I never meant to let you down, let you down
Woulda gave you anything, woulda gave you everything
You know I say that I am better now, better now
I only say that ’cause you’re not around, not around
You know I never meant to let you down, let you down
Woulda gave you anything, woulda gave you everything
Oh-oh
