Post Malone’s take on the classic “Pickup Man,” released under the title “Joe Diffie featuring Post Malone” on November 9 via Mercury/Republic/Big Loud Records, swiftly captured audience’s interest, snagging him a spot of country charts for the very first time.
Billboard reported that in the week of November 3-9, the rendition attracted 826,000 impressions. Notably, this debut occurred after just one day of tracking, highlighting the rapid impact Post Malone is making in the world of country music.
