Over the last year, Post has become a Spotify giant. His single "Rockstar" is closing in on one billion streams, placing it at number 11 on Spotify's list of all-time most streamed songs. Spotify currently lists Post Malone's average monthly listeners at 41,468,557.

Post Malone's streaming success is also spilling over into traditional metrics as well. Hits Daily Double reports that Beerbongs & Bentleys is predicted to sell 471,000 equivalent album units in its first week, with 157,000 of those coming from pure sales. That makes it the biggest first-week debut of 2018 so far, passing J. Cole's recently set mark of 397,000 equivalent album units for KOD.
