In September, Post Malone addressed his collaboration with Ozzy, recalling how he called it his “favorite” appearance he’s done “since SABBATH.”
Speaking on how he ended up having Ozzy on his song “Take What You Want,” rapper said: “I was in Utah ’cause I had just got off tour. So Ozzy went over to Watt‘s [producer and guitarist Andrew Watt] house… and [he] said, ‘Hey … Ozzy Osbourne‘s coming down. We’re gonna cut it, and I’ll Facetime you, and you let me know what’s going on.’ So we talked, and it was, like, a big [f*cking] deal. Ozzy, Ozzy Osbourne!”
He continued: “I think he crushed it. He was talking to Watt, and Watt was telling me, yo, ‘This is my favorite [thing] I’ve done since, you know, SABBATH. Since I started my own way.’”
Ozzy‘s wife Sharon recently revealed that Ozzy‘s new solo album will be released in January.
She spoke about Ozzy‘s health during an appearance on SiriusXM. When asked how legendary BLACK SABBATH singer is recovering from his recent setbacks, she responded: “He’s getting there. He had a very, very bad accident this year, but he’s getting there.
“He’s just finished an album, and the album is coming out in January. And he’s doing good. He’s very excited about the duet he did with Post [Malone] and also Travis Scott. It’s doing great. It’s at Top 40 radio, and it’s climbing up every week. It’s doing good.”
In a recent interview with The Sun, Ozzy has revealed that he finished work on his next solo album.
“I’ve made a new album and it’s helped get me back on track,” legendary BLACK SABBATH singer said. “I was just lying in my own self-pity for months. It’s the greatest album I’ve done.”
He said the record came after he was asked to appear on a track by Post Malone.
“I’d never even heard of this kid. He wanted me to sing on his song “Take What You Want,” so I did and then one thing led to another. I started recording a new album with Post Malone’s producer Andrew Watt. It’s only nine tracks but it was a catalyst to get me to where I am today.”
“If it wasn’t for making this record I would still be on traction, thinking, ‘I’m going to be lying here for ever’. I’ve missed music so badly. My fans are so loyal and so good. Up until making the album I thought I was dying. But that got me off my a**e.”
He added: “If it wasn’t for making this record I would still be on traction, thinking, ‘I’m going to be lying here for ever’. I’ve missed music so badly. My fans are so loyal and so good. Up until making the album I thought I was dying. But that got me off my a—s.”
“This is my first recording in a studio for ten years, so I do feel a bit out of touch. Music goes straight online these days and that’s quicker than it takes me to write a text. It’s all about downloads and streaming now. What the f*ck does that mean? What’s Spotify? I thought it was a skin problem where you woke up spotified.
“The album was all finished in four weeks,” he added.” I said to Sharon that I didn’t feel like I’d made an album because we haven’t ended up screaming at each other.”
