Post Malone and The Weeknd are two of the biggest names in the music industry. Their first collaboration, then, is a surefire viral hit. “One Right Now” is an electro-synth, pop track with origins in The Weeknd‘s recent discography. The single, however, is a step out of Posty’s comfort zone, as we’ve yet to see him release in this genre until now.
“One Right Now” is A Break-Up Track on Steroids
“One Right Now” is a fiery yet catchy break-up track, with both artists demonstrating their incredible vocals. We are introduced to The Weeknd’s silky vocals in the first chorus, and the song only gets better from there. Posty, true to his nature, sings with a buoyancy – each word lighter and more intoxicating than the next. Both The Weeknd and Post Malone brag on their exes, and not so subtly either. Posty sings of Hermès bags, Rolls Royces, and new women. Whoever broke his heart is surely paying for it. The Weeknd also gloats to his ex with lyrics like, “You’re a stain on my legacy/ We can’t be friends, can’t be family / You probably f*** all my enemies.” It seems the pair has created a break-up track on steroids.
A Major Collab
This collaboration is major for two reasons: it’s the first time these artists have ever worked together on a track, and it’s rumored to be part of Post Malone’s fourth album. Posty last dropped in July, with another sound-redefining track, “Motley Crew.” It seems the hip-hop giant is continuing to experiment with other genres. Fans are expectant that his upcoming, unnamed studio album is just as innovative. The pair began teasing “One Right Now” just a week ago on social media. With barely any marketing, the unlikely duo have reached the Top 30 on Apple Charts. This track, of course, joins The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights,” which has charted for months.
