A couple of days ago we’ve shared some news about American rapper Post Malone. For the rapper‘s birthday, his manager Dre Landon posted a video from his Instagram account and wrote something on the caption. That video was a behind-the-scenes clip from Post Malone’s upcoming project. Both the video and the caption were saying something about that upcoming Motley Crew song, Malone’s first song this year. You can more about it here. As of today, the Motley Crew song is out with its video.
“Happy Birthday my brother. I tell u all the time you are 1 of the realest Americans I ever met!! So of course your day is today! This week we celebrated by shooting a MOVIE!! I’m excited to finally announce new single ‘Motley Crew’ dropping Friday!”
As you can understand from the name, that is a song that seems inspired by Motley Crue, the 1981 hard rock band founded in California. But it is not just about the song’s name. Because rumors were also saying that a Motley Crue band member will be in the music video. And that band member is no one else but Tommy Lee. We are now used to seeing Tommy Lee in interesting collaborations. He made an appearance to Tyla Yahew’s single “Tommy Lee” which was also featuring Post Malone.
Even though Post Malone Motley Crew song doesn’t sound like from Motley Crue or anywhere near sound-alike it is good to see Tommy Lee in the music video. He also looks enjoyed of being in the video so he posted a scene from the new music video on his Instagram. He was also “thrilled to be the inspiration” Tommy Lee song made by Tyla Yaweh. He said those words about previous year’s song:
It’s even hard to explain. I’m honored to death that someone would even call a song ‘Tommy Lee’, and then to have a song be about you… And coming from guys that, like — fucking Post Malone is probably one of the biggest artists, other than Billie Eilish. These are extremely talented and successful artists, and to get that back, it’s hard to even explain. It feels so cool. It’s like you’re in a club. They’ve not only accepted you, they’re fucking honoring you.
It’s hard to talk about myself like that, so it’s difficult; I’m sorry. But it’s cool because it just acknowledges that what I’m doing, I’m on the right path. Getting shoutouts from a bunch of other hip-hop artists, and my name pops up in a bunch of songs. I get a kick out of that. I’m, like, ‘That’s fucking rad, man.’ It’s weird even talking about it. I don’t know.
It’s not the first time these two are collaborating. They were also together for the Over Now song in Malone’s 2018’s Beerbongs & Bentleys.
