Rising hip-hop producer Tank God has explained how he made Post Malone’s hit single “rockstar” featuring 21 Savage on a new episode of Genius’ Deconstructed. The track currently sits at No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot 100, becoming Post’s highest charting single to date.
Tank discusses that he made the beat while taking a break from studying for finals in December 2016. He then recalls his chance encounter with Post later on while at a studio session in New York City. Tank goes on to break down “rockstar” in FL Studio.
The track, which was DJcity’s third most downloaded song of September, is the first single from Post’s forthcoming second studio album, Beerbongs & Bentleys. “Rockstar” broke Apple’s single-week streaming record with 25 million plays.
