Post Malone’s “Circles” Hits No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100
Post Malone returns to familiar territory in the latest edition of the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart.
On Monday (Nov. 25), Billboard reported that Posty's latest Hollywood's Bleeding single, "Circles," has reached the No. 1 spot on the chart after being at No. 2 on the chart last week. It's his fourth song to hold down the No. 1 position on the chart.
Post Malone's first time landing at No. 1 on the chart was his 21 Savage-assisted October 2017 single, "Rockstar." His second was his Ty Dolla $ign-featured, spring 2018 single "Psycho." His third and last before "Circles" was 2018's "Sunflower," which features Swae Lee. "Circles" is his first No. 1 with no other writing credits besides his own.
For Post, who recently closed out his latest national tour, this No. 1 placement marks just the latest in a long line of wins. On Sunday night, Posty won the American Music Award for Favorite Album - Rap/Hip-Hop. Understandably, Post was pretty stoked for the win, but a lot of rap fans weren't because they don't think he's a pure hip-hop artist.
After his win was announced, fans immediately jumped to social media to voice their opinion on Posty winning the trophy. "I fuck with Post Malone. But he shouldn’t have won best rap album.... not rap...," another Twitter user said. "Post Malone. Best Rap Album. Get the entire fuck outta here," said another.
While some people are upset with Posty's latest accomplishment, Post really has more reasons to smile than anything else.
