Austin Richard Post, known professionally as Post Malone, is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, and actor. Known for his tattoos, introspective songwriting, and laconic vocal style, Malone has gained acclaim for blending a range of genres including hip hop, R&B, pop, trap, rap rock, and cloud rap.
On the chart dated November 30, 2019, "Circles" became Post Malone's fourth number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 and his first unaccompanied by another artist. It also marked his second Hot 100 number one of 2019, following "Sunflower" with Swae Lee, which led the chart in January.
On the chart dated May 2, 2020, "Circles" broke the record for the most weeks spent in the Hot 100's top 10; 34 weeks – surpassing his own song, "Sunflower" (2019), Maroon 5 and Cardi B's "Girls Like You" (2018), and Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You" (2017), which all logged 33 weeks each in that region.
It simultaneously passed the latter for the most weeks spent in the top 10 from a song's debut. It later extended its record to 39 weeks. "Circles" would keep the record for five more months before The Weeknd's "Blinding Lights" broke the record by logging an extra week inside the Hot 100's top 10, spending 40 weeks in total. It was the most-played radio song of 2020.
Many consider him as a legend. Mary, an user of Quora writes:
I had a crush on Post for a while. I was a new fan of his music and a good forty years older than him.
My husband teased my a lot about my little start crush, and thank God Post isn't aware that I am even alive.
But, he disappointed me by adding another face tattoo. I had adjusted to the one's he had previously, even though I felt they looked somewhat amateurish.
I hope me never regrets those tattoos.

It became the first song to spend 30 weeks in the top 10 of Billboard's Mainstream Top 40 radio airplay chart, where it also ranked at number one for 10 weeks, becoming the first single by a solo male artist (no features) to achieve double-digit frames at number one on that chart. The song spent 61 weeks on the chart before leaving in November 2020.
Elsewhere, the song also peaked at number one in Iceland, Malaysia and New Zealand, number two in Australia, Canada, Ireland, Norway, Singapore and Slovakia, number three in Czech Republic, Denmark, Lithuania, Slovenia and the UK, while reaching the top 10 in several other nations.
I don’t care what people say about his voice or anything, this guy is such a legend. I love you Post Malone
You know you're something special when you can smoke a cigarette on stage when nobody else can in the whole arena...lol
Its so good to see him enjoying his time on the stage performing it . Baller.
Man, no matter what, we need to protect Posty at all costs!!!!!!!!!!!!🙏
He’s gonna lose his voice at an early age if he doesn’t stop that smoking. Especially if he can’t even wait until he gets off the stage...
