“Rockstar” premiered on September 15, 2017, and is apart of Malone’s album, Beerbongs & Bentleys. The song was also nominated for Record of the Year at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards.
Malone told Wall Street Journal in July that he is working on a new album during quarantine: “There’s so much to say in these times that will give people hope and hopefully uplift people’s spirits. Because it’s a dark time in America. In the darkest of times, I’m just trying to make something beautiful out of it.”
He then followed this statement with, “I want to make an album that will uplift and show that people are not alone in their times of loneliness and worry and that at the end of the day we all need to show love to everyone on the planet and figure things out. I think we’re making some incredible stuff.”
Ed Sheeran‘s track, “Shape Of You,” is the first song with more streams than “Rockstar,” while Drake‘s jam “One Dance” comes in third.
