Igniting 2018, Post Malone shatters the record for “Longest #1 Run on the Spotify Global Chart” with “rockstar” [feat. 21 Savage]. The RIAA double-platinum smash now holds the top spot on the chart for an unprecedented and unmatched 108 days and counting with no signs of slowing or stopping either.
