Post Malone has shared a new collaborative track with Tyla Yaweh. The track is named after the Mötley Crüe drummer, ‘Tommy Lee’.
Featuring on the nose lyrics like, “Pull up with a drum like I’m Tommy Lee.” It’s a gluttonous pop delight. In an interview with NME, Yaweh described the track as being about “living life and spreading positive energy”.
Yaweh delved into the Mötley Crüe reference explaining, “Tommy Lee just doesn’t give a fuck and I love that.”

In other news, Post Malone recently jumped on a video chat with Megadeth frontman David Ellefson, where he discussed his favourite metal bands.
“I’d say y’all. I mean, Megadeth has gotta be the best for me,” Post says. “I love Megadeth, I love Metallica… you know, I love… Fuck, man. So much shit…
“I love Pantera. I got to meet Phil [Anselmo, frontman] backstage at a show, and he’s a cool-ass dude, and he talks like this (adopts a deep voice). I’m like, ‘Dude, it’s gotta hurt to talk [like that],’ but he’s still fucking got it.”
The realms of rock and Post Malone have been entwined since the early days of his career. Back in April, Post Malone cracked off a killer Nirvana tribute set.

Posty showed off his chops as a grunge singer and guitarist, nailing songs including ‘Come As You Are’, ‘Heart-Shaped Box’, ‘About A Girl’ and stacks more. The set went for over an hour and saw Malone joined by blink-182 drummer Travis Barker.
It was all for a good cause too, with donations being taken during the stream for the United Nation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Fund for the World Health Organisation. Over the course of the set, punters managed to raise over $2.5 million USD.
