People (millennials) think that Post Malone has discovered…Ozzy Osbourne. This sorta’ stuff just brings a tear to my eye.
Last week (6th September), Post Malone released his latest studio album Hollywood’s Bleeding. You could say it’s doing well so far, currently sitting at no. 1 in the iTunes charts while his new single “Circles” is number 7 on the Billboard Charts.
Incidentally, it might just be the catchiest song of all time. Either that or “Sunflower”.
If the album achieves its estimated sales (475,000 to 500,000 unit sales within the first week) then Malone’s new album will have the second-largest opening week for any album in 2019, with a close following to Taylor Swift’s Lover, which was released August 23rd this year.
The song from the album that has most people talking is “Take What You Want” feat. Ozzy Osbourne and Travis Scott. Never in my life did I think I’d be putting those three names in the same sentence, but hey, it’s 2019, anything can happen.
Ozzy is a legend for a number of reasons. Firstly, he is The Prince of Darkness. Secondly, he is the lead singer of heavy metal band Black Sabbath. Thirdly, he is the reason his family is famous (SHARON!!) Fourthly, he once – allegedly – ate a real bat on stage. And lastly, he’s just about the most famous Brummie in the known universe.
Now, Ozzy had an amazing career, rising to fame with Black Sabbath, whom he eventually left, before releasing eleven studio albums on his own. He then re-joined Black Sabbath in 1997 and helped record their final album “13” which was released in – you guessed it – 2013.
However, it seems as though some people have no idea who he is, and what’s worse, they think Post Malone discovered him, just because they feature on a track together. Honestly, I just can’t.
I’m genuinely praying that these people are joking. If not, we’re all doomed and millennials will be the end of us all.
Thankfully, there are people who can find the light in a dark situation and they’re all expressing their emotions and thoughts on the situation. Isn’t Twitter just the best?
Now let’s all sit around the fire singing Paranoid, ‘cause that’s sure as hell what these people got me feeling.
