Domination. That is the only way to characterize Post Malone's opening week on the world's most popular streaming platform following the release of his sophomore album, beerbongs & bentleys.
One week after J. Cole took control of the 10 most-played hip-hop songs on Spotify, the Dreamville head honcho is nowhere to be found in the highest echelon of the streaming juggernaut's play counts. In fact, only one other artist can be found. Other than Drake's chart-topping hit "Nice For What," Malone currently holds every spot in the top 10.
beerbongs & bentleys might sound a bit humdrum, but millions of people are certainly eating that shit up. For the full list of the nine most popular songs on beerbongs & bentleys, scroll down.
