Post Malone + Roddy Ricch Break Out With ‘Cooped Up’ Single: Look + Listen

With a little help from Roddy Ricch, Post Malone puts an end to his pandemic depression on “Cooped Up.”

The latest single off Malone’s upcoming LP Twelve Carat Toothache, following the song’s Thursday (5.12) premiere, Malone joined Apple Music 1’s Zane Lowe to talk about “Cooped Up,” and his forthcoming full length:

“I’ve been out of my bag for a long time, and I’m trying to hop back in there, man.” “We knew what we wanted to say, and we knew what we wanted to express, not only in a song but in that particular moment on the album. And yeah, it just came super naturally.”

About the the Louis Bell-produced song, Post admitted, “I was probably on the shitter when I wrote it,” and about collaborating with Ricch he added “He’s just such an incredible man and just a natural performer and vocalist and lyricist. And he just gets after it, and it’s so cool. Dude, and just to watch him grow — and he’s such a beautiful, beautiful man. And so talented, man.”

Twelve Carat Toothache, which also includes the Weeknd-featured single “One Right Now,” which is “the most honest record I’ve made,” Malone told Lowe. And in a Rolling Stone interview the singer/songwriter said the album would “speak more to how I’m feeling at the moment: the ups and downs and the disarray and the bipolar aspect of being an artist in the mainstream.”

Post Malone’s first studio LP since 2019’s Hollywood’s Bleeding arrives June 3 and in addition to the Weeknd and Ricch collabs the collection features guests vocals from Doja Cat, the Kid Laroi, and Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold.
