Post Malone Tops Rock Charts With New Album ‘Austin’

Post Malone’s most recent album ‘Austin,’ which came out on July 28th, has already become No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Rock & Alternative Albums and Top Alternative Albums charts.

It is said that although he had rock-alternative songs before, none of his albums prior to ‘Austin’ was a proper rock and alternative album. The album’s success made Post Malone the fourth-biggest on Top Rock & Alternative Albums in 2023 after Metallica’s ’72 Seasons,’ Melanie Martinez’s ‘Portals,’ and Lana Del Rey’s ‘Did You Know That There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd.’

Malone first announced the release of ‘Austin’ from his official IG page on May 16th and mentioned how personal it was for him. In the caption, he wrote:

“Proud to announce my new album titled ‘Austin’ dropping on July 28th. This whole deal has been one of the most challenging, rewarding, and exciting records I’ve worked on. I feel it captures who I am as a man and as an artist at this moment. Thank y’all so much for your patience, and thank you for being there with me in my hardest times. I love y’all so much and am ready to f*cking party with y’all. Cheers, and keep spreading love.”
