Blame It On Me – Post Malone | Naturally, fans have shown their appreciation for the album on Twitter.

“Beerbongs & bentleys” was released late last month, and set a record on Spotify for first-day streams. It is, as the title suggests, a celebration of Post’s multitudes.

Born in Syracuse, New York and raised in Grapevine, Texas, Malone rose to fame in the mid-2010s following the release of his debut single “White Iverson”. The song, which peaked at fourteen on the Billboard Hot 100 and later certified quadruple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), garnered Malone a recording contract with Republic Records. He released his debut studio album Stoney in 2016, which debuted at number six on the Billboard 200. The album, which featured the top-10 hit “Congratulations”, would soon become certified double platinum.

His second album, Beerbongs & Bentleys, was released in 2018, and featured the single “Rockstar”, with 21 Savage. The song rose to number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, marking Malone’s first number 1 as a solo artist. Upon release, the album would break several streaming records en route to debuting at number one on the Billboard 200, while also gaining platinum certification in the first four days of release

With its impassive descriptions of womanizing, pill-popping, and property destruction, Post’s smash 2017 single “rockstar” sets the tone for Beerbongs & Bentleys. “Party going in with the threesome/Raw dog, prolly have three sons,” he raps on “Takin’ Shots.”

There were rumors that Post’s label, Republic Records, had figured out a way to hack the Billboard charts by releasing a video on YouTube that included a loop of the song’s chorus, and also links to streaming services where fans could hear the rest. The loop video was only a free “preview” for the song, yet both YouTube views and full streams were counted in the single’s Billboard stats.

[Verse 1]
I used to say I was free
Now all these people wanna keep on takin’ pieces of me
They take away everything, had everything that I needed
They held me down, let me drown
They spit me out, right through the teeth
I can’t pretend, ash in the wind, won’t blow again
It was a breeze for you
These hurricanes inside of my brain, let it rain, made it look easy Can’t look away, you love the pain, you love the pain

[Pre-Chorus]
Watchin’ me bleed
You cut me down on my knees
No matter what you believe
I think we both can agree

[Chorus]
That you can’t blame it on me, yeah
It’s not my fault, it’s not my fault, it’s not my fault
Blame it on me
It’s not my fault, it’s not my fault, it’s not my fault
I couldn’t breathe
Almost lost myself, couldn’t stop myself, I did it all
You can’t blame it on me
It’s not my fault, it’s not my fault, it’s not my fault

[Verse 2]
Everyday’s the same, yeah, I just watch ’em go
As I scrape away through the impossible
Yeah, I played the game but it was all for show
Tryna find my way, I nearly lost it though
Now I see dead people, most have no faith
Where did the time go? A watch with no face
They hit the ceilin’, but my roof likes space
I took my chances so won’t you

[Chorus]
Blame it on me
It’s not my fault, it’s not my fault, it’s not my fault
Blame it on me, ayy
It’s not my fault, it’s not my fault, it’s not my fault
I couldn’t breathe
Almost lost myself, couldn’t stop myself, I did it all
You can’t blame it on me
It’s not my fault, it’s not my fault, it’s not my fault, not my fault

[Bridge]
It’s all my fault that I’m addicted to the clothes
It’s all my fault, I paid the cost, yeah
It’s all my fault that I ain’t givin’ up my soul
It’s all my fault

[Pre-Chorus]
Watchin’ me bleed
You cut me down on my knees
No matter what you believe
I think we both can agree

[Chorus]
That you can’t blame it on me
It’s not my fault, it’s not my fault, it’s not my fault
Blame it on me
It’s not my fault, it’s not my fault, it’s not my fault
I couldn’t breathe
Almost lost myself, couldn’t stop myself I did it all
You can’t blame it on me, ayy
It’s not my fault, it’s not my fault, it’s not my fault

[Outro]
It’s not my fault, it’s not my fault, it’s not my fault
Blame it on me, yeah
It’s not my fault, it’s not my fault, it’s not my fault

Beerbongs & Bentleys was released Friday (Apr. 27), and so far, the highly-anticipated follow-up to his 2016 debut Stoney seems to have been worth the wait.
