(AllHipHop Rumors) Post Malone saw massive success in 2017 after releasing his “Rockstar” single with 21 Savage.
The single debuted at #2 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart and broke Apple Music’s single week streaming record after been streamed more than 25 million times.
“Rockstar” went on to be a double platinum single after being #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart for 8 consecutive weeks, but did you know T-Pain and Joey Bada$$ were originally on the single.
Earlier this week a version of the single featuring T-Pain and Joey Bada$$ surfaced being labeled as a remix. However, T-Pain and Joey Bada$$ say it’s actually the original version of the record.
This information became known after a fan acknowledged their appreciation of T-Pain’s remix verse to which he responded,
“That’s the original. They took me off. And put 21 on. Me and Joey had it first.”
Joey Bada$$ also chimed in to deliver his commentary about the “Rockstar” situation.
He responded with,
“This is facts… I actually co-wrote the song w post :) quietly got my first #1 off that more ghostwriting in 2018.”
Do you prefer the original version of Post Malone’s “Rockstar” or the official version?
