It comes as no surprise that Malone is topping Billboard’s list. Earlier today, it was revealed that “Emo Rap” is the fastest-growing genre on Spotify.
Additionally, earlier this month, college professors dissected Post Malone tracks and gave us an in-depth analysis on why we love him so much. When dissecting “Rockstar,” the Berkeley professors said the song was so catchy because of Malone’s repetitive nature.
“Even if it’s the first time you’re hearing the song, you can anticipate the fact that there is going to be that down, on-the-one phrase,” Kareem Clarke says. “It makes it easier for the normal listener to latch on to that and remember it and know what’s about to come next.”
