Post Malone is back and he’s here to play.
Ahead of the Pokémon Day 25th anniversary celebration and virtual concert, the hip-hop superstar returns with a cover no one saw coming. Posty dropped a version of Hootie and the Blowfish’s 1995 single “Only Wanna Be with You,” only this time it’s the “Pokémon 25 Version”.
With the notable exception of his outstanding live-streamed Nirvana tribute last April, and a showstopping performance at the Billboard Music Awards, the “Rockstar” singer has kept quiet by his standards over the past year. Indeed, “Only Wanna Be with You” is his first release in 2021 so far, and his first single as a lead artist since 2019.
