Post Malone is back with a brand new single since the release of his sophomore studio album ‘beerbongs & bentleys.’ Set to a Christmas-sy animated video, “Wow.” is not exactly about Christmas. The new song is more of a celebration of Malone himself.
Post Malone released “Wow.” without any prior announcements on December 24th, and there is little information as to if this will be Malone’s first release from an upcoming album. In between the second studio album and this new single, Malone also released his contribution to ‘Spider-Man” Into The Spider-Verse’ movie soundtrack, titled “Sunflower.”
The only teasing Malone did on the new single was a single Tweet that read “Song before the year end \m/.” In this song, Malone talks about his massive first album ‘Stoney’ and his newfound fame and success.
