Since bursting onto the scene in 2015 with his breakout single, “White Iverson,” Post Malone has become one of today’s most popular figures in hip-hop. Since coming into the public eye, Post Malone has produced a growing but concise discography of heartfelt, memorable, and genre-bending music that has captivated the ears and hearts of listeners around the world.
Despite having a small discography, Post Malone has been raking in massive earnings from his Spotify streams. In 2019, Post became Spotify’s most streamed artist of the year, and in 2022 he has achieved over 56 million monthly listeners on the platform.
