Post Malone continues to drum up excitement surrounding his yet-to-be-announced country project with the release of a new song teaser featuring country superstar Blake Shelton

The genre-bending star shared the song snippet late Thursday and simply captioned the post, “🍻 @blakeshelton.” 

In the teaser, fans can hear the artists trading verses on a radio-ready party tune that finds the artists singing about unwinding over a few cold ones after a long week.  

“Somebody pour me a drink, somebody bum me a smoke/ I’m ’bout to get on a buzz/ I’m ’bout to get on a roll/ yeah, I’ve been breaking my back, just keepin’ up with the Joneses/ Y’all know what I mean/ Y’all know how it goes,” they sing. 

The song’s lyrics may not be groundbreaking, but it’s sure to be a hit among listeners looking for a laid-back summer soundtrack. 

Shelton was quick to comment on the post, replying with several sets of eyeball emojis. His wife, Gwen Stefani, also reacted within the comments, admitting she was fangirling over the the tune. 

“Can’t handle this much cool and cute,” she wrote. “Super fan alert!”

Fans also shared their excitement as many begged the New York-born/Texas-raised artist to go ahead and release the album. 

“We needed the album like yesterday,” one Instagram user wrote, while another shared, Patiently waiting for this album announcement and country posty tour announcement.”  

This isn’t the first time Post Malone and Shelton have crossed paths. In 2019, they teamed up for a cover of Elvis’ “Blue Suede Shoes” alongside Darius Rucker, Keith Urban, and more for NBC’s Elvis All-Star Tribute. 

Post Malone has yet to officially unveil official details about his highly anticipated country project, however, it seems he’s pulling out all the stops to include several high-profile country artists in the mix.

The first official taste fans got of the album was the Billboard Hot 100 No.1 “I Had Some Help” featuring Morgan Wallen. Already a certified smash, “I Had Some Help” was added to 167 first-week stations at country radio, marking only the second time in history that a single has debuted with the support of all reporting stations (this follows Garth Brooks’ “Long Neck Bottle” which became the first to do so in 1997). It debuted on the charts at No.15 and became the second-highest debut ever, following Brooks’ “More Than A Memory” in 2007.     

Additionally, following its release on May 10, “I Had Some Help” shattered Spotify’s single-day country streaming record with 14 million streams, making it the top debut for a male collaboration in history. This buzzed-about collaboration also claimed the number-one spot on Apple Music’s Global Chart and topped Pandora’s Top Thumbed chart.  

Other artists who are expected to contribute to Post Malone’s country project include ERNEST, Luke Combs, and Brad Paisley.
