Blake Shelton invites Post Malone to unwind and forget his troubles at an epic backyard tailgate party in the just-released music video for their new collaboration, “Pour Me A Drink.” 

In the Chris Villa-directed video, Post Malone has a chance encounter with Blake Shelton, who plays a convenience store owner. When Posty stops by to purchase a bottle of malt liquor,  he scrounges for cash and ends up trying to pay with a few bills, some coins, and a frozen yogurt punch card. Standing on the opposite side of the counter, Shelton casually returns his money and the liquor and directs his new friend to the other side of the store through a large Bud Light tower where a party appears to be happening on the other side. Without question, the genre-bending artist makes his way through and winds up with Shelton and a large group of partygoers, ready for a good time. 

Wearing a Dallas Cowboys jersey, Post Malone dives into the festivities, grabbing a red Solo cup and joining the crowd. The scene is quite lively with dancing, corn hole, a bonfire, and live music as the party continues into the night by the lakeshore.

The music video perfectly captures the song’s theme of escaping life’s pressures by drinking and smoking with friends on the weekend. Instead of stressing about keeping up with others, Post Malone and Blake Shelton choose to relax with cold drinks and enjoy the moment, leaving their worries for another day.

“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 been breakin’ my back just keepin’ up with the Joneses/ Y’all know what I mean, and y’all know how it goes/ When it’s up on a Friday and I’m paid, slide one over my way/ I can’t even think when I can hear one callin’ my name,” they sing. 

“Pour Me A Drink” was written by Austin Post (Post Malone) with Louis Bell, Charlie Handsome, John Byron, Rocky Block, and Jordan Dozzi.

The artists delivered the live debut of the song during CMA Fest earlier this month. Their performance is set to air during the three-hour ABC concert special, CMA Fest, on Tuesday, June 25.  

“Pour Me A Drink” was released on Friday, June 21, which happened to be the same day Post Malone scored his first-ever No.1 at country radio with “I Had Some Help” featuring Morgan Wallen. The track took just seven weeks to reach No.1, marking the fastest climb to the top since Garth Brooks’ “More Than A Memory,” in September of 2007, according to country radio insider Chris Owen. Before that, Tim McGraw’s “Live Like You Were Dying” also claimed the No.1 spot in seven weeks. 

According to, the average climb to No.1 is 33 chart weeks.
