UPDATE: Here’s the music video.
Post Malone recently announced that he will be releasing his new album Twelve Carat Toothache on June 3rd.
The album is led by the semi-hit ‘One Right Now‘ with The Weeknd but today, the very successful singer returns with the follow-up called ‘Cooped Up’ where he joins forces with Roddy Ricch. It’s no surprise that the duo went for a catchy sound on this because Posty surely wants a chart topper.
“He’s just such an incredible man and just a natural performer and vocalist and lyricist. And he just gets after it, and it’s so cool. And he’s such a beautiful, beautiful man. And so talented, man. I’m so pumped,” Post told Zane Lowe about working with Roddy.
“I’m trying, man. I’m trying. I’ve been out of my bag for a long time, and I’m trying to hop back in there, man. We knew what we wanted to say, and we knew what we wanted to express, not only in a song but in that particular moment on the album. And yeah, it just came super naturally. I couldn’t even tell you. I was probably on the s***ter when I wrote it,” he added about the song.
“And so, there’s a lot of things very much so on this record that are tongue in cheek. And I think this whole record is the most honest record I’ve made, and I’m so pumped for people to hear it. But every song in there tells a story, so this is kind of like, “Here’s the life that we live, but there’s always something going on in the background,” he continued about the album, calling it his most honest yet.
