Single Review: Post Malone – One Right Now

Austin Richard Post, more commonly known by the name Post Malone, is an American Rapper and musician. He apparently selected that name by running his own name through a rap name generator which matched his surname with Malone. He first came to public attention in 2015 following the release of his debut single ‘White Iverson’ but I think I first really became aware of him in 2018 when he collaborated with singer/rapper Swae Lee, on Sunflower, a song for the soundtrack of the movie, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. I fell in love with that song and have since kept an eye on Post Malone’s music. 

Despite being a fan of Post Malone’s music, we usually don’t review mainstream and successful artists here at Off the Record because they don’t need the support so I haven’t yet reviewed his music. I decided however, that given our roots as a music blog and our focus on music blogging, despite expanding our content, that it would be weird if I didn’t review his music before reviewing his wine. So yeah, you can click here for my review of Maison No. 9 and continue reading to read my review of his latest single ‘One Right Now’ which was a collaboration with Canadian singer, The Weeknd and was released on November 5th 2021. 

‘One Right Now’ opens with a tight percussive electronic driven beat that blends in some soulful, synth charged vocals. I liked this track, Malone’s deeper voice balances well with The Weeknd’s voice and the pair create a richly textured musical backdrop. I like that despite being a high energy track this isn’t all full throttle, it has a nice beat to it, full of highs and lows, and a really melodic bibe that really draws you in. 

So that’s what I thought of Post Malone’s single ‘One Right Now’ and if you want to check that out for yourself then head on over to Spotify.
