Post Malone’s long-awaited Stoney follow up is almost here.
During a performance in Nashville on his Bud Light Dive Bar Tour, Posty announced his sophomore album Beerbongs & Bentleys will be released on April 27. The Syracuse-born, Texas-raised rapper also confirmed the news on his Twitter.
Beerbongs & Bentleys has been a longtime coming. The album was first teased back in 2016 and was scheduled to drop in late 2017, but the album was pushed back so Post Malone could perfect the record.
hey guys, i know a lot of you guys were expecting a project today, it won’t be dropping for a little while. I’m sorry to let you down, but i need to make sure this album is perfect for you. I’m gonna keep working my ass off and make the best fucking album ever. i love ya. 💕🍻

According to the rapper’s manager Dre London, the new album will be a lengthy one. After a late-night studio session, Dre London posted an image of a whiteboard that appeared to include the tracklist for Beerbongs & Bentleys. Only one song was written on the whiteboard—“Rockstar”—but based on the photo the new album is expected to be 18 tracks long.
If history is any indication, Beerbongs & Bentleys is likely to be a success on the charts. The new album follows 2016’s Stoney, which saw the mega hits “Congratulations” and “White Iverson.”
Most recently, Post Malone—born Austin Richard Post—dropped the music video for the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted track “Psycho” this past March.
The track is the third single off Beerbongs & Bentleys, and debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. “Psycho” comes after the single “Candy Paint” from The Fate of The Furious soundtrack and the quintuple-platinum hit “Rockstar,” featuring 21 Savage.
“Rockstar” remained on the charts at No. 1 for eight consecutive weeks and was Post Malone’s first song to reach No. 1.
