Net als veel andere tieners leerde Austin Richard Post gitaarspelen via de game Guitar Hero. Als 16-jarige leert hij productiekneepjes in Fruity Loops en al snel maakt hij zijn eerste mixtape. Later werkt bij met Trocon Roberts en Rex Kudo aan de track White Iverson. Die track plaatst hij op SoundCloud en in juli verschijnt er ook een video bij de track. Binnen een maand tikt de track een miljoen views aan en is de interesse van platenmaatschappijen gewekt. In augustus van 2015 tekent hij een contract bij Republic Records. Sindsdien werkte hij met onder meer Young Thug, 50 Cent en Kanye West. Justin Bieber nodigt hem uit om het voorprogramma van zijn Purpose World Tour te doen. In december van 2016 brengt hij zijn debuutalbum Stoney uit waarop ook Bieber te horen is op de track Deja Vu. In het voorjaar van 2017 wordt Congratulations (met Quavo) zijn eerste top 10-hit in de Verenigde Staten.

In september van 2017 blijkt pas echt hoe groot Post Malone is als Rockstar wereldwijd naar de bovenste regionen van de streaminglijsten schiet. In ons land komt Rockstar tot nummer 4 in de Top 40. In februari van 2018 maakt hij, samen met Ty Dolla $ign, de track Psycho. Eind april breekt hij met zijn Beerbongs & Bentleys verschillende records. Kort na de release groeit Better Now uit tot één van de populaire tracks. Halverwege mei is hij met Preme te horen op de track Jackie Chan in de versie van Tiësto en Dzeko.


Songtekst

You probably think that you are better now, better now
You only say that cause I'm not around, not around
You know I never meant to let you down, let you down
Woulda gave you anything, woulda gave you everything

You know I say that I am better now, better now
I only say that cause you're not around, not around
You know I never meant to let you down, let you down
Woulda gave you anything, woulda gave you everything, oh oh

I did not believe that it would end, no
Everything came second to the Benzo
You're not even speakin' to my friends, no
You knew all my uncles and my aunts though
Twenty candles, blow 'em out and open your eyes
We were lookin' forward to the rest of our lives
Used to keep my picture posted by your bedside
Now it's in your dresser with the socks you don't like
And I'm rollin', rollin', rollin', rollin'
With my brothers like it's Jonas, Jonas
Drinkin' Henny and I'm tryna forget
But I can't get this shit outta my head

You probably think that you are better now, better now
You only say that cause I'm not around, not around
You know I never meant to let you down, let you down
Woulda gave you anything, woulda gave you everything

You know I say that I am better now, better now
I only say that cause you're not around, not around
You know I never meant to let you down, let you down
Woulda gave you anything, woulda gave you everything, oh oh

I seen you with your other dude
He seemed like he was pretty cool
I was so broken over you
Life, it goes on, what can you do
I just wonder what it's gonna take
Another foreign or a bigger chain
Because no matter how my life has changed
I keep on looking back on better days

You probably think that you are better now, better now
You only say that cause I'm not around, not around
You know I never meant to let you down, let you down
Woulda gave you anything, woulda gave you everything

You know I say that I am better now, better now
I only say that cause you're not around, not around
You know I never meant to let you down, let you down
Woulda gave you anything, woulda gave you everything, oh oh

I promise
I swear to you
I'll be okay
You're only the love of my life

You probably think that you are better now, better now
You only say that cause I'm not around, not around
You know I never meant to let you down, let you down
Woulda gave you anything, woulda gave you everything

You know I say that I am better now, better now
I only say that cause you're not around, not around
You know I never meant to let you down, let you down
Woulda gave you anything, woulda gave you everything, oh oh
