Now, in a new interview with Zane Lowe for Beats 1, Post has revealed how the unlikely collaboration came to be.
“Ozzy Osbourne, baby,” he began. “I was in Utah because I had just got off tour. It’s good, right? Ozzy went over to Watt’s house. You’ve talked a lot before. He’s a maniac. I said, ‘Hey, you know what? Ozzy Osborne’s coming down, we’re going to cut it and I’ll FaceTime you. And you let me know what’s going on.”
“We talked and it was like a big deal,” Post continued. “Yeah. Ozzy Osbourne. I think he crushed it. I mean he was talking to Watt and Watt was telling me he was like this, ‘Yo, this is my favourite that I’ve done since you know, Sabbath and since I started my own, own way.’ I was like, ‘That’s huge.’ I’m like honoured. Thank you very much.” Watch the full interview below.
Elsewhere in the interview, Post Malone revealed that he almost made a collaborative album with Mac Miller before the rapper’s death.
“We were sitting there playing beer pong and we were like, ‘Let’s make a fucking album.’ Then we were coming up with names and then it’s so weird too,” he told Lowe.
‘Hollywood’s Bleeding’, Malone’s third album, came out on Friday (September 6). In a four star review, NME‘s Danny Wright said: “At times he sounds like Julian Casablancas. At others he sounds like ’70s FM radio. This accomplished and eclectic record, though, could only come from Post Malone.”
