Post Malone was in the news recently due to the announcement of his new album, and now he’s back to announce his participation in the Chip & Dale: Rescue Rangers movie.
Chip and Dale: Rescue Rangers is set in a world where cartoons and humans all coexist in Los Angeles, and these two famous chipmunks have been separated for decades after the cancellation of their show. The difference between them is so great that Chop is now called Dale. Now that a former castmate has disappeared, they return to work together and try to regain their broken friendship.
With this premise we can see that the central theme of the film is longing for the time when Chip and Dale had a successful show and a great friendship. That is why Post Malone‘s theme song is nothing more or less than a remastered version of Chip and Chop‘s mythical song from the series. In the song, Malone keeps much of the lyrics and the central melody of the original version intact, but adds his own pop-trap style.
Previously the musician had already dabbled in the soundtrack of other films such as Return Of Xander Cage in 2017 with his song Burning Man, and in 2019 Sunflower was part of Spiderman, a film in which the singer also had his own cameo.
The artist’s career has been taking bigger and bigger steps for years. In 2019 he won his first GRAMMY for best rap collaboration, and last 2021 he won his ninth GRAMMY for best album of the year. In addition, Post Malone has collaborated with various artists, thus creating incredible songs such as One Right Now, which he did together with The Weekend and reached the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100.
Recently, before knowing the artist’s participation in this movie, he released Cooped Up, in collaboration with Roddy Rich. This release was a small preview of what is expected from his long-awaited fourth album, which he has titled Twelve Carat Toothache and which is scheduled to be released on June 3 of this year. This new work brings more personal songs about the artist’s feelings, talks about ups and downs and disorder in a life that left aside his privacy as soon as he became one of the most recognized rappers in the world.
That duality and at the same time balance between the public life of an artist and what is beyond the covers of his albums are the main themes of Twelve Carat Toothache, an album that seems to show the most sincere and naked version of Post Malone.
