Post Malone’s third studio album Hollywood’s Bleeding dropped on Friday and includes a number of features from artists of various genres, including SZA, Kanye West, Young Thug, Swae Lee, Father John Misty. The most surprising feature, however, comes via Ozzy Osbourne, who sings the chorus on the track “Take What You Want” which also features rapper Travis Scott.
Malone is an artist influenced by a number of varied musical styles, so it’s not exactly a shocker to see him collaborating with the Prince of Darkness. Still, this is Ozzy’s first ever cameo (that we know of) on a hip-hop or R&B song, during his near-five decade career in music.
Ozzy’s ageless vocals begin the track: “I feel you crumble in my arms down to your heart of stone/You bled me dry just like the tears you never show/Why don’t you take what you want from me?/Take what you need from me/Take what you want and go.” Malone has spoken about his fondness for heavy metal in the past, and even played in a hardcore band before he became a pop-chart dominator, so this feature feels very full-circle.”
