Post Malone, whose real name is Austin Richard Post, continues to surprise fans with his diverse musical ventures. While he has primarily delved into rap and hip-hop in the past, his fondness for country music has been no secret.
Recently, during a Twitch livestream, the rapper, amidst rounds of a video game, confirmed a new direction in his music, stating:
“Country record is coming… I keep singing a song that we made while I was in Nashville, and it’s so f–ing sick, but it’s not out.”
Although Post Malone mentioned he is working on two albums, details about whether they both pertain to country music remain undisclosed. However, fans can anticipate his participation in Hardy’s upcoming Mixtape Vol. 3: Difftape, set to release in March 2024.
