Pharrell and Quavo Among Features on Post Malone’s ‘Stoney’ Album
Post Malone premiered a new song with Quavo titled "Congratulations" at a recent show, and sitting down with Real 92.3's Bootleg Kev, he reveals some of the remaining features on his debut album Stoney. "Justin [Bieber], Quavo, Kehlani. We’re working on some very special things. We got Pharrell on there," he says in the above clip.
Asked how the Pharrell collab came to be, Post says, "He initially hit me up and we met at Bonnaroo, he said 'Let's get into the studio' so whenever that whole run was done we got in the studio in L.A. He’s the nicest guy in the world." Post as well hints at a potential Kanye track, and says that Metro Boomin produced "Congratulations."
Of the album's sound, Posty says, "We're just figuring things out. And I think we’re making a sound that’s super fresh and hip. Very fly. You can really just get down to it."
Later on, he sheds some light as to why he wasn't included on the 2016 Freshman cover, saying that what XXL Editor-in-Chief Vanessa Satten told The Breakfast Club, that he was distancing himself from hip-hop, isn't true. "I had to go all the way to New York and I didn’t want to. And then she talked shit. It’s ok, though. It’s whatever. People have a natural inclination to just talk shit about things they don’t understand. Listen, it’s my life. I live for people to talk shit about me," he says.
