ICYMI: the Prince Of Darkness makes a surprising guest appearance on Posty’s new album Hollywood’s Bleeding, featuring on the track ‘Take What You Want’ alongside Travis Scott. And it’s triggered fans to hit social media to both champion the promising new talent and praise Posty for taking a punt on a “lesser known” artist such as the Black Sabbath founder:
who tf is ozzy osbourne ???!??! this is why I love post malone for shining light on unknown artists

Ozzy Osbourne did so good for his first song! So cool of Post Malone to put him on like that!

The whole thing is clearly a meta-meme, invoking last week’s events that saw enraged Taylor Swift fans lambast a previously unknown band called Tool for overshadowing Lover on the album charts.
But the joke has hilariously gone over the heads of plenty of cloud-yellers on the internet, whose backlash has been more swift than Taylor herself:
I don't want to live in a world where people think Post Malone is the reason Ozzy Osborne is famous.

People really think Post malone made Ozzy Osbourne famous. This generation is hopeless

You could say they’re… going off the rails on a crazy train?
FYI, Ozzy has reportedly called the Post Malone collab his “favourite” since he was with Black Sabbath.
