Rapper Post Malone's song "Take What You Want", featuring Ozzy Osbourne and Travis Scott, has debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 chart at No. 8. According to Billboard, the track marks Osbourne's first Hot 100 top 10 in over 30 years, as the BLACK SABBATH singer breaks the record for the most time between top 10s in the chart's 61-year history. The song appears on Post Malone's new LP "Hollywood's Bleeding", which landed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
In an interview with The Sun, Ozzy credited the Post Malone collaboration with getting him "off his arse." The singer, who was left in intensive care earlier this year after a fight with pneumonia, explained: "I'd never even heard of this kid. He wanted me to sing on his song 'Take What You Want', so I did and then one thing led to another. I started recording a new album with Post Malone's producer Andrew Watt. It's only nine tracks but it was a catalyst to get me to where I am today.
"If it wasn't for making this record, I would still be on traction, thinking, 'I'm going to be lying here forever.' I've missed music so badly. My fans are so loyal and so good. Up until making the album, I thought I was dying. But that got me off my arse."
"Hollywood's Bleeding" is the follow-up to Post Malone's 2018 album "Beerbongs & Bentleys". That record topped the Billboard 200 albums chart in May of last year. The same month, streaming service Spotify said the LP had broken the first-week streaming record, with more than 236 million streams in the United States and more than 411 million worldwide.
Earlier this year, Malone (whose real name is Austin Post) earned four Grammy nominations, including album of the year for "Beerbongs & Bentleys".
He took home the top rap song trophy at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards for "Rockstar" alongside collaborator 21 Savage, as well as song of the year at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards for the same track.
