Spotlight: Post Malone
Sep 6 , 2017 Doors: 7:30pm Show: 8:00PM
With a style and sound unlike any other, it was only a matter of time before Post Malone became a household name. Since his breakout track "White Iverson" (4x Platinum), Malone has released hit after hit, including "Congratulations" (4x Platinum), "Go Flex" (Platinum), and "Too Young" (Platinum). The artist has graced 28 different charts, featuring hit tracks "Congratulations" and "White Iverson," which have hovered toward the top of the Top 100 for a combined 60 weeks. His most recent album, Stoney, went Platinum in under two months and has accumulated nearly 3 billion streams worldwide and counting. In addition to his own unique sound, Malone has collaborated on tracks with some of the biggest artists in the world, including Justin Bieber and Pharrell Williams, and has even joined forces with hip-hop icons such as Kanye West and 50 Cent. Even before Malone's incredibly quick rise to stardom, he joined Fetty Wap in 2016 for his Welcome To The Zoo tour and was direct support for Bieber's Purpose tour. Growing up listening to a wide variety of artists like Metallica, Johnny Cash, the Notorious B.I.G., and others, Malone knew he wanted to create music that wouldn't be tied to just one genre. Somewhere along his path, Malone found a way to do this. At a young age, he opted for the less traditional teenage hobby. After trading in "Guitar Hero" for an actual guitar, he began jamming and eventually departed for Los Angeles where he met music duo FKi and started making music. Drawing from folk, hip-hop and even country flairs, Malone has created music that appeals to people of all walks of life. Under Republic Records, Malone dropped his RIAA Platinum-certified debut record, which has consistently landed him on the Billboard 200. Realizing his gift, Malone now has his sight set on taking over the entire music industry. Join GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Scott Goldman in welcoming Post Malone to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate conversation about his rising career and a live performance featuring hit tracks off Stoney.
