In October 2018, Post Malone and Swae Lee released "Sunflower" taken from the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack. The original video featured a typical treatment of using clips from the film but on Jan. 10, the duo released a new video for the track (Jan. 9)
The new release is captured in black and white and is a look behind the scenes of the recording session. Malone opens the video on a red carpet scene praising Lee saying, "Me and this guy right here, he's the genius behind everything and we're just making trouble."
The updated "Sunflower" video may also look familiar as it's been used in the Beats Audio commercial with the line "music the way Post Malone and Swae Lee intended."
The song itself has been performing well on the charts peaking at No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart while also reaching No. 3 on the almighty Hot 100 which combines airplay, sales and streaming data. It's also reached a high of No. 2 on the Rhythmic chart while nearly cracking the top 10 on the Top 40 tally
Post Malone had hoped he would have new music released by the end of 2018 following the release of "Sunflower." That didn't pan out the way he planned but he did release the new single "Wow" on Dec. 24. The single has also been charting well around the world for such a fresh release, reaching No. 13 on the Hot 100 thus far while also entering the top 5 in the UK.
