Rapper Post Malone recently confused the world with his success. He broke a record which has been held by the late Michael Jackson for 34 years. So how did he do it? The 23-year-old rapper whose name has slowly crept into the mainstream in recent years just saw his album Stoney spend its 77th week in the top 10 of Billboard‘s Top R&B and Hip-Hop Albums chart — beating out the 76 triumphant weeks that the King of Pop’s Thriller spent up there in the 1980s. It’s not the first time! Malone’s second album Beerbongs & Bentleys is the top-performing full-length album of 2018 so far. That album also broke a Billboard Hot 100 record previously held by the Beatles; before Drake dropped his oversized album Scorpion, Malone’s Beerbongs reigned supreme with the biggest streaming records on Spotify and other digital platforms.
