Post Malone and 21 Savage’s “Rockstar” single wins Top Rap Song at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night.
“Rockstar” has been one of the biggest songs of the past year and is well deserving of the win. Some fans are complaining that Kendrick Lamar was robbed of the trophy. Kendrick’s “Humble,” Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves),” French Montana featuring Swae Lee’s “Unforgettable,” and DJ Khaled featuring Justin Bieber, Chance The Rapper and Lil Wayne’s “I’m the One” were also nominated in the same category of Top Rap Song.
“This is pretty cool stuff, man,” Malone said in his acceptance speech while being supported by his collaborator 21 Savage. “Thank y’all so much. This is my first award by the way. I just want to say thank you to everybody for supporting me, to my fans, Savage for doing this song with me.”
“Rockstar” is featured on Post Malone‘s new album Beerbongs & Bentley. The track peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and stayed at the top spot for eight consecutive weeks. The track also broke Spotify’s Global Chart for the single to hold the top spot for the longest run.
