It's coming very soon
Post Malone has revealed the release date for his upcoming new album.
‘Beerbongs & Bentleys’ was first announced in February 2017 and initially expected to drop by the end of that year.
Then in December, Post explained that his record wouldn’t be “dropping for a little while”, explaining that he wanted to “make sure this album is perfect for you” and would “keep working my ass off and make the best fucking album ever”.
At a show in Nashville on Wednesday (April 4), the rapper told fans that the album would finally be released on April 27, admitting that it had been “in the works for so fucking long”.
‘Beerbongs & Bentleys’ is Post’s second studio album and will follow on from 2016’s ‘Stoney’.

Last November, Post Malone addressed accusations of cultural appropriation and responded to a controversy over comments he made about hip-hop.
In an interview, Post had said that fans “looking for lyrics” and “looking to think about life” shouldn’t listen to hip-hop, suggesting they should listen to Bob Dylan instead.
Addressing accusations of cultural appropriation, Post Malone said: “A lot of people [are] saying I don’t appreciate hip-hop or I’m taking advantage of hip-hop. My last hip-hop album was fuckin’ hip-hop, my next hip-hop album is fuckin’ hip-hop. I love hip-hop, I make hip-hop. I wanna take this genre and stretch it so far that people who may not listen to it, listen to it.”
About his original comments, Malone explained: “What I was trying to say is that a lot of people, except for a handful of artists, are saying the same shit, they’re not saying anything super meaningful.”
“I’m 22 years old,” he added. “I have not had all the life experience in the world to talk about the most meaningful shit. I just think about what I have gone through, what’s going on in my life, and what I wanna sing about. Never once did I say I don’t appreciate hip-hop. I’m just trying to keep living and make the music that I love.”
