“Rockstar” maintains the No. 2 spot on Spotify’s all-time Most Played playlist, followed by Drake’s “One Dance,” The Chainsmokers’ “Closer” featuring Halsey and Tones and I’s “Dance Monkey.”
“Rockstar” has taken in plenty of accolades. The acclaimed single from Post’s Beerbongs & Bentleys debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, dethroning Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” in the process.
Posty’s success on the Spotify charts has been replicated by his success on the Billboard chart.
2019’s “Circles” has spent its entire year-long history within the Top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100. The single broke a record previously held by Posty’s “Sunflower” collaboration with Swae Lee for the longest time spent in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, lasting for 39 weeks.
