Here are words you probably never thought you would read, Ozzy Osbourne was so happy with his collaboration with Post Malone that he said it was his “favorite” work since his original run with Black Sabbath.
The track, “Take What You Want,” appears on the new album from Malone titled, Hollywood’s Bleeding, and was the topic of conversation on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show. Malone calls the track, which also features Travis Scott, “a big deal” and says about Osbourne, “I think he crushed it.” Malone says he wasn’t with Ozzy during the recording at Andrew Watt’s house, but says,
“I mean, he was talking to Watt and Watt was telling me he was like this, ‘Yo, this is my favorite that I’ve done since, you know, Sabbath, and since I started my own, own way.’ I was like, ‘That’s huge. I’m like honored. Thank you very much.’”
Malone, who performed at last year’s MTV Video Music Awards with Aerosmith, says,
“I don’t want to think of it as business, I think music, at the end of the day, has nothing to do with fucking business. Music has to do with people… you can’t go out and try to go for, ‘Oh, this person’s hot right now; I want a song with them.’ A song blows up. It’s important that… it’s organic. It’s two artists with each other [who] say, ‘Let’s make something.’”
