This album contains background beats and uplifting vibes that fans can find in his previous albums. Even though this album contains similarities, Malone adds a new twist as he embraces singing rather than just embracing his rapping skills in every song. “Every song on the album meant something to me because I felt like Post was really trying to connect with his fans. This is my favorite album that he has made,” Magnet senior Emma Collins said.
