Post Malone Collaboration Is Ozzy’s “Favourite Since Black Sabbath”
To coincide with the release of his new album Hollywood’s Bleeding, U.S. rapper Post Malone has appeared on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show to discuss, among other things, his collaboration with Ozzy Osbourne.
When asked about Ozzy and their song together – Take What You Want, also featuring Travis Scott – Post replies:
“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. You’ve talked a lot before. He’s a maniac. I said, ‘Hey, you know what?

Thank you very much.”

If you’re reaching out saying, ‘Hey, I have this song,’ and like as a precursor to everything, I’m saying that you can’t go out and try to go for, ‘Oh, this person’s hot right now. I wanna song with them?’ A song blows up. It’s important that it makes, it’s organic. It’s not like, like two artists. It’s two artists with each other and say let’s make something. And then if somebody does something for my album, I’m in the studio the and the first chance I get…”
