Post Malone’s 2017 was a weird one but was also highly successful at the same time. While he ended f the latter half the year with controversy surrounding his name, he broke some records at the same time. After releasing his single “rockstar” alongside 21 Savage, the two artists received their first number one single and managed to break Apple Music’s first week streaming record previously held by DJ Khaled for “I’m The One.” However, Apple isn’t the only streaming service they’ve managed to beat a record on.
