“Beerbongs and Bentley’s” Album Review

Ja'Naya Hanks, Entertainment Editor

Post Malone released “beerbongs & bentleys” on April 27, 2018. The album features guest appearances from Swae Lee, 21 Savage, Ty Dolla Sign, Nicki Minaj, G-Eazy, and YG. The album was supported by four singles: “Rockstar”, “Candy Paint”, “Psycho” and “Ball for Me”.

I previously knew about Rockstar and Candy Paint because they came out earlier. At first, I was not too fond of Candy Paint, I heard it once and didn’t think too much about it. Later on, after actually listening to it, I was hooked.

Then Rockstar featuring 21 Savage came out and I liked it a lot, but the radio overplayed it fast and soon I didn’t like it anymore. Anytime someone even said a line from the song I just instantly got annoyed. Every day of my life I heard that same song and got irritated about it to a point where I brought headphones in the car for whenever the song came on.

I liked other songs by Post Malone, so I was wondering what was going on. Psycho featuring Ty Dolla $ign came out in March and that’s probably my favorite song off the album. Some my favorite lines are, “My money thick, won’t ever fold, she said, “Can I have some to hold?”, and I can never tell you no.” So like if I ask for a stack or two I get it?

I had no idea that there was going to be a full album I just thought there were going to be some singles and that would be the end of it. I saw all over social media that he had released the album and decided to give it a look.

Honestly, I’m not too into it. I think I just had higher expectations of the album because even the previous songs he had before they not only had more meaning to them, but they were also a lot more catchy. The songs on “beerbongs & bentleys” just did not speak to me like his other songs from his album Stoney.

His songs like I Fall Apart, Go Flex, and Congratulations all had a hidden message and I adored that. Maybe that’s why I had so much faith in the next album. The album is not garbage or anything it just was not the best thing I’ve heard from him, but I don’t absolutely hate it.

Lately, over social media, I’ve seen a lot of posts and memes hyping the album up, and I’m just not seeing what the big deal is. No disrespect towards him or anything because his music is still good, but this one just wasn’t my favorite.
