Post Malone Isn't Backing Down On New Single 'Psycho'

    With the release of his his second studio album Beerbongs & Bentleys being hotly anticipated, Post Malone has continued to stoke the hype with the release of today's single "Psycho", with a feature by Ty Dolla $ign.

    "Psycho" finds the Texas-bred rapper singing and rapping over a melodic and meandering trap beat, similar in style and feel to Malone's breakout hit "White Iverson". It's definitely more of an end-of-the-night, "last call" song than banger, but Post has shown in the past that he doesn't need to rely on bangers and posturing to make a hit. And for all of the criticisms that you could levy against the rapper for his stances on being a white rapper and rap/hip-hop culture, there's no questioning that he does have his finger firmly on the pulse of what's quality these days. If you can place your stigmas about mumble rap aside for a moment, you'll find that "Psycho" is a dreamy track to turn up (or down?) to with some real substance.

    It's also interesting giving Malone's lyrical content a critical analysis, especially in context with his statements about the shallow nature of rap lyricism not all that long ago. "Psycho" picks up where "Congratulations" left off, with Malone taking in where he is now instead of where he has been. The struggles that were vaguely alluded to in "Congratulations" are nowhere to be found here, and instead we find him flexing his accomplishments and accustoming himself to the high life. Like it or not, agree with how he got there or don't, but on "Psycho" Post Malone is clearly on top and enjoying the view.

    Beerbongs & Bentleys currently does not have a release date.
