The album has its fair share of features and collaborations, but none more unusual and genre-crossing than one with The Prince of Darkness himself, Ozzy Osborne.
The ninth track off Hollywood’s Bleeding is “Take What You Want” and on top of it being a certified banger, features Travis Scott and Ozzy Osbourne.
It’s always amazing to see two masters of their craft work together. The world stopped when Paul McCartney teamed up with Kanye West and Rihanna for “FourFiveSeconds”. It stopped for Madonna, Justin Timberlake and Timbaland’s “4 Minutes”, and I imagine it stopped when they started putting peanuts into M&Ms.
“Ozzy Osbourne, baby. I was in Utah because I had just got off tour. It’s good, right? Ozzy went over to Watt’s house”. Post Malone says on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1. “You’ve talked a lot before. He’s a maniac. I said, ‘Hey, you know what? Ozzy Osborne’s coming down, we’re going to cut it and I’ll FaceTime you. And you let me know what’s going on.”
“We talked and it was like a big deal. Yeah. Ozzy Osbourne. I think he crushed it. I mean he was talking to Watt and Watt was telling me he was like this, ‘Yo, this is my favourite that I’ve done since you know, Sabbath and since I started my own, own way.’ I was like, ‘That’s huge.’ I’m like honoured. Thank you very much.”
The song is amazing with Ozzy’s vocals and shredding guitars intertwined with Travis Scott and Post’s bars.

“The album is called Hollywood’s Bleeding because I finally made the move out of L.A. and I moved to Utah.” Post Malone says to Spotify. “And I just feel like in L.A. and Hollywood, there’s a lot of vampires out there that just want to suck the life from you. So I kind of wanted to flip it back, and when you get out and step back and look at the whole situation, you realize Hollywood itself is kinda dying because of all the bloodsucking vampires.”
