Post Malone reveals how his collaboration with Ozzy Osbourne came to be.

When we discovered the tracklist for Post Malone’s upcoming album, we were blown away by the eclectic collaborations that will feature. Most of all though, we were surprised to see that Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne had worked with the producer for a track.

Speaking to Zane Lowe for Beats 1, Post Malone has revealed exactly how the unlikely collaboration came to be.

“Ozzy Osbourne, baby,” he teased. “I was in Utah because I had just got off tour. It’s good, right? Ozzy went over to Watt’s house. You’ve talked a lot before. He’s a maniac. I said, ‘Hey, you know what? Ozzy Osborne’s coming down, we’re going to cut it and I’ll FaceTime you. And you let me know what’s going on.”

He continued: “We talked and it was like a big deal. Yeah. Ozzy Osbourne. I think he crushed it. I mean he was talking to Watt and Watt was telling me he was like this, ‘Yo, this is my favourite that I’ve done since you know, Sabbath and since I started my own, own way.’ I was like, ‘That’s huge.’ I’m like honored. Thank you very much.”
