Fans Unearth Years Old Post Malone Tweet as His New Country Single Takes the Internet by Storm

Breaking into the music industry back in 2011, Post Malone quickly proved himself to be a top name in genres like hip hop, pop, and R&B. Some of his hit songs include “Rockstar”, “Psycho”, and “Congratulations.” Eventually selling over 80 million records, Malone has shown more than an interest in country music as he released his collaboration with Morgan Wallen on May 10. Debuting “I Had Some Help” at Stagecoach, the song is already climbing the charts. While seeming to follow other singers like Beyonce into country music, it appears that Malone predicted his entrance into the genre nearly a decade ago.

Back in May 2015, Malone jumped on Twitter to share some of his thoughts and predictions about the future. While not knowing what the future holds, it appears that Malone was right when he wrote, “When I turn 30 I’m becoming a country/folk singer.” Although seeming to write the future, Malone was wrong about one thing – he isn’t 30 years old. Currently 28, the singer has already broken into country music. And with the artist covering several hit country songs, he seems right at home in the genre.

I love him. He’s the greatest guy and he loves country music. We’ll see if we do something. You never know.”
