NASHVILLE, TENN. – Post Malone and Morgan Wallen are making history with new single “I Had Some Help.”

Today, “I Had Some Help” earned 167 first week adds at country radio, becoming only the second single in chart history to debut with the support of all reporting stations (the first time being Garth Brooks’ “Longneck Bottle” in 1997, 27 years ago). The single additionally opens at No. 15 on the Mediabase chart, the second-highest debut of the monitored era only behind Brooks’ “More Than A Memory” (2007).

Praised as an “inevitable summer hit” (Rolling Stone) with “abundant hooks and a contagious momentum” (Stereogum), “I Had Some Help” broke Spotify’s single-day country streaming record with nearly 14 million streams on Friday, May 10. The song debuted No. 1 on Spotify’s Global Daily chart and became the streamer’s No. 1 male collaboration debut of all-time. “I Had Some Help” also topped Apple Music’s Global chart and was No. 1 on Pandora’s Top Thumbed chart upon release.

“Post and Morgan delivered a huge hit record; we knew we had to do our part and deliver a huge launch at country radio,” Big Loud Records SVP of Radio Promotion Stacy Blythe says. “Our radio partners made this set up incredibly exciting and we are so grateful for how they stepped up to support with no hesitation.”

ABOUT POST MALONE

A 9x diamond-certified GRAMMY® Award-nominated phenomenon, Dallas, Texas artist Post Malone regularly rewrites history, blurs boundaries, and incites internet-breaking conversation with every move. Emerging in 2015 with a genre-less brew that inspired a movement, he delivered the diamond-selling “Congratulations” [feat. Quavo], achieved back-to-back No. 1 debuts on the Billboard Top 200, received countless multi-Platinum certifications around the world, and smashed one record after another with his Hot 100-topping hits. In 2022, he pushed boundaries again with his fourth full-length offering, Twelve Carat Toothache, which marked his fourth consecutive Top 5 bow on the Top 200. It also paved the way for his biggest headliner to date, The Twelve Carat Toothache Tour, taking over arenas for multiple dates in major cities throughout the year. He even scored “the highest-certified single in RIAA history” with the 17x-platinum “Sunflower (Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse)” [feat. Swae Lee], netting the biggest single of his generation. In 2023, he garnered a GRAMMY® Award nod in the category of “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance” for “I Like You (A Happier Song)” [with Doja Cat], marking his tenth career nomination in six years.

Three years prior, his 2019 third full-length, Hollywood’s Bleeding [Republic Records], represented an audience and critical high watermark. Not only did it arrive at platinum status and eventually go triple platinum, but it also reigned at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 for four weeks and returned to the chart for a fifth week, making for the longest run atop the chart of 2019 and the first release to do so in over a year. The quadruple-platinum lead single “Circles” seized No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks. It notably occupied a spot on the chart for a record 39 weeks in total. Speaking of making history, he performed a massively popular Nirvana tribute concert on YouTube, raising over $10,000,000 for the World Health Organization in the fight against COVID-19. Hollywood’s Bleeding followed the immense success of the triple-Platinum beerbongs & bentleys, which also landed at No. 1 a year prior. In the wake of beerbongs & bentleys, Post crushed a record in place for 54 years. He charted nine songs in the Top 20 of the Hot 100, notching “the most songs in the Top 20 of the Hot 100 ever. Moreover, he also trounced the record for most simultaneous Top 40 Hot 100 hits with 14. 

As of 2023, his catalog comprises the GRAMMY® Award-nominated “rockstar” [feat. 21 Savage” (Diamond), “Sunflower (Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse)” [feat. Swae Lee] (2x Diamond), “I Fall Apart” (Diamond), “Psycho” [feat. Ty Dolla $ign] (Diamond), “White Iverson” (Diamond), “Better Now” (Diamond), and more. Not to mention, he sold out numerous arena tours and hosted and curated his own mega-popular Posty Fest in 2018 and 2019. It all started with his quintuple-platinum influential 2016 debut, Stoney. With records under his belt that will likely never be surpassed and a generation of artists and audiences worldwide under his spell, Post Malone simply doesn’t stop.
