On “Rockstar,” Post Malone compares his habits to the “live fast, die young” rock and roll lifestyle. Along the way, he references real events in rock history, name-drops Bon Scott and Jim Morrison, and highlights rockstar traditions like throwing TVs out of hotel windows.
The song artwork features barbed wire and a snake. Rockstar broke the record for the most streams in a single week on Apple Music, with over 25 million streams.
Post previewed the song in December 2016, nine months before he released it, by posting a video of himself jamming to it in the studio. The preview received thousands of retweets on Twitter over the course of the year, so the track was highly anticipated by the time it finally dropped. Rockstar marks Post Malone and 21 Savage’s first collaboration.
