It’s been a long 30 years for Ozzy Osbourne. But, congratulations to him on setting a record for the longest break between top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 chart! His collaboration with Post Malone and Travis Scott has him back on the charts after 30 years. The song, “Take What You Want,” from Post’s new album Hollywood’s Bleeding hit number 8 on the charts.
This song is only the second from the Metal icon to ever break the charts; his first being “Close My Eyes Forever” with Lita Ford from 1989. Time flies.
When the album dropped and this song was played around the world, Post Malone’s younger fan-base were clueless as to who Ozzy Osbourne was. Fans insist that Post “put Ozzy on.” People on the internet are funny.
Fans of Post Malone be like; “who’s Ozzy Osborne?”

According to Ozzy, this collab with Post Malone “got him off of his arse.”
“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.”
