Post Malone and Billy Strings Team Up for Johnny Cash’s ‘Cocaine Blues’ Cover

0

Post Malone and Billy Strings teamed up for a cover of Johnny Cash’s hit song “Cocaine Blues” at Strings’ show in Southern California, Orange County, and fans are loving it.

But perhaps no one loved the collaboration more than pop star Malone, who said, as he took the stage with a cigarette and a beer, “Billy Strings is the best that’s ever done this.”

Malone and Strings have been (public) buddies since Strings posted an Instagram post in 2020, which read, “Redneck shit with my boy @postmalone #fuckaroundandfindout💥 ( 📸 @adamdegross )”.

And in a more recent IG post, Strings thanked Malone for the Cash collaboration, saying, “Thank you @postmalone.. love you ❤️ // 📸 @jesse_faatz.”

Strings, which is currently touring in the spring, has stops outside several cities on the West Coast of the United States, including Las Vegas for a sold-out show at the Brooklyn Bowl. He also has other American and European dates to come. See the full list of dates below.

And Malone has a long-awaited new album, twelve carat toothache, which will be released soon. Talk with Billboard a few months ago, Malone said he insisted on the new LP, which will follow his record from 2019 The Hollywood Bleed.

The new record will be around 45 minutes, which would be his shortest yet. But, says Malone, that’s exactly where it’s at.

“Trying to hustle 20 to 25 songs, it doesn’t work. talk to etiquette [it’s like]”Oh, if you have fewer songs, you’re not going to stream as much, but the whole thing is you don’t want to compromise your artistry and your intuition on anything,” he said. Billboard.
