Post Malone’s “Hollywood’s Bleeding”: 5 Hidden Gems

5 hidden gems from Post Malone's "Hollywood's Bleeding"

2. Hollywood’s Bleeding: 

Disillusionment finds a new face in Post Malone’s opening track. “Hollywood’s Bleeding” sees Malone detailing listlessness using his signature vocal tones against a cinematic, acoustic-trap arrangement. And, while the theme of the track runs the risk of sounding all too familiar (the revelation that Hollywood is not all that it’s made out to be isn’t a new one), Post saves the day with witty metaphors and striking imagery. 

“Outside, the winter sky turnin’ grey/ City up in smoke, it’s only ash when it rains/ Howl at the moon and go to sleep in the day/ Love for everybody ’til the drugs fade away,” are the lines that mark the main verse. And, so the singer-rapper takes you on a journey through the dark side. Unexpectedly captivating in its style, this one is a sure-shot underdog that notches higher and higher with every listen.
