Post Malone Up For Four 2019 Grammy Awards

Post Malone has had quite the year, hasn't he? From sketchy plane rides through to breaking a record the Beatles have held for a whopping 54 years, it been a pretty dramatic time for the American rapper.

Well, just to add to it all, he's ending 2018 with no less than FOUR Grammy nominations, which isn't a bad way to see the year out, is it?

His second studio album Beerbongs & Bentleys has been nominated for the Album of the Year award, while 'Rockstar' (featuring 21 Savage) has also been nominated for Record of the Year and Best Rap/Sung Performance.


He's also up for Best Pop Solo Performance with another of his songs, 'Better Now', bringing his number of total nominations to a pretty respectable four.

Late rapper Mac Miller has also been honoured with a posthumous Grammy nomination, having received a nod for Swimming in the Best Rap Album section. It is the star's first Grammy Award nomination.
