SOTD: Wow.

Post Malone

Post Malone

I like Post Malone generally but have never considered myself a huge fan of his. He recently dropped a new single right before the holiday titled Wow. It’s probably my favorite song I’ve heard by him. Take a listen below.

[Verse 1]
Said she tired of little money, need a big boy
Pull up 20 inch blades like I'm Lil’ Troy
Now it's everybody flockin', need a decoy
Shawty mixing up the vodka with the LaCroix, yeah
G-Wagen, G-Wagen, G-Wagen, G-Wagen
All the housewives pullin’ up (Up, up)
I got a lot of toys, 720S bumpin' Fall Out Boy

You was talkin' shit in the beginning (Mm-mm)
Back when I was feelin' more forgivin' (More forgivin')
I know it piss you off to see me winnin' (See me)
See the igloo in my mouth when I be grinnin' (I be grinnin’), yeah

[Chorus]
Hunnid bands in my pocket, it’s on me
Hunnid deep when I roll like the army
Get more bottles, these bottles are lonely
It's a moment when I show up, got ’em sayin', "Wow" (Wow, wow)
Hunnid bands in my pocket, it's on me (On me)
Yeah, your grandmama probably know me (Know me)
Get more bottles, these bottles are lonely
It's a moment when I show up, got ’em sayin', "Wow" (Wow, wow)


[Verse 2]
Everywhere I go (Hey)
Catch me on the block like I'm Mutumbo (Wow)
750 Lambo in the Utah snow (Skrrt)
Trunk in the front like that shit Dumbo, yeah

Cut the roof off like a nip-tuck
Pull up to the house with some big butts
Turn the kitchen counter to a strip-club (Yeah, wow)

Me and Dre came for the...
When I got guap, all of y'all disappeared (Wow)
Before I dropped Stoney none of y'all really cared (Cared)
Now they always say, "Congratulations," to the kid (Kid)

And this is not a 40, but I'm pourin' out this shit (Yeah)
Used to have a lot, but I got more now (Yup)
Made another hit 'cause I got bored now (Yup)
Always goin' for it, never punt fourth down
Last call, Hail Mary, Prescott touchdown, ayy

[Chorus]
Hunnid bands in my pocket, it's on me (On me)
Hunnid deep when I roll like the army (Hey)
Get more bottles, these bottles are lonely
It's a moment when I show up, got 'em sayin', "Wow" (Wow, wow)
Hunnid bands in my pocket, it's on me (Yeah, yeah)
Yeah, your grandmama probably know me (Yeah, yeah)
Get more bottles, these bottles are lonely
It's a moment when I show up, got 'em sayin', "Wow"


[Outro]
Got 'em sayin', "Wow"
Ayy, ayy, wow
Sayin', "Wow"
Wow
Wow

I can see this being a big hit for a while now.

“Wow.” is Post Malone’s first single since the release of “Sunflower,” a collaboration with Swae Lee that was featured on the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack. The song is thematically similar to “Congratulations,” a massive hit from his 2016 debut album Stoney which is even referenced in the second verse. Both songs focus on Post showing off his wealth, such as cars and money, to the people who doubted him before he was famous.

As of December 2018, it is unclear if this is the lead single for Post’s next project, although he did make significant changes to his social media accounts when the song was released. In November of 2018, he tweeted the following:

Trying to put out a new body of work before the end of the year but we all know how that goes wish me luck…
