During the Selena Gomez-hosted episode, the rapper performed recent Ricch collaboration ‘Cooped Up’ and unreleased song ‘Love/Hate Letter To Alcohol’, both taken from upcoming album ‘Twelve Carat Toothache’.
For ‘Cooped Up’, Ricch joined Posty on a stage backed by candlelight, while on ‘Love/Hate Letter To Alcohol’, the members of Fleet Foxes formed a semi-circle around the rapper and provided choral backing vocals.
Post Malone is a longtime fan of the band, and ‘Love/Hate Letter To Alcohol was recently teased by the rapper as featuring Fleet Foxes frontman Robin Pecknold. “He’s the most beautiful fucking vocalist, the most epic fucking guy,” Post said. “Fleet Foxes is one of my favourite bands.”
