Post Malone knows how to party, and we couldn’t think of a better person we’d want to watch ring in the new decade.
dick clark productions and ABC announced on Wednesday (Dec. 17) that the “rockstar” rapper will headline Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2020 in Times Square, New York, just minutes before the ball drops.
