Post Malone is one of the biggest music artists in his genre at the moment and he's certainly come a long way since his debut.
Many people will know his story of recording his iconic song 'White Iverson', which copped millions of streams shortly after it was uploaded to Post's Soundcloud account in 2015.
But few fans will be aware he had an earlier song with a matching music video of his first-ever song.
TikTok account Patcren has uploaded a side-by-side video showing just how different the production value is when you have a major music label behind you.
Post's first song 'Why Don't You Love Me' is similar to his sound now, but features a much less tattooed Post Malone singing to the camera in a white studio.
Dressed with a cheetah scarf around his head and a blue tracksuit, it's a far cry away from the music video for 'Congratulations', which has racked up millions of views on YouTube.
But this song was actually under an alter-ego called Leon DeChino, which he did when he was just 17 years old.
While the footage has gone viral on TikTok, it was originally posted to YouTube in 2016 and has been viewed 12 million times.
People in the comments couldn't believe the difference.
One person said: "When he said 'What the heck' all the Christian kids thought that hit different."
Another added: "This gotta be an unreleased troll song he just saved when he was with his friend in high school."
A third wrote: "Y'all making fun but imagine if he quit after ppl told him this shit sucks
He promised he would bring this era of Post Malone back for a feature on his album, but that has yet to materialise. Give the people what they want Post!
Post did pay homage to his alter ego when he released the music video for 'Psycho' back in 2018.
