Did T Pain Joey Bada Co Write Post Malones Rockstar
Drake , Meek Mill , and anyone else embroiled in a feud that erupted from a ghostwriting accusation will be the first to tell you that the line between co-writing and ghostwriting is a tricky one to walk.
In the latest chapter of this age-old hip-hop saga, T-Pain revealed on Twitter that he was on the original version of Post Malone 's 'rockstar' with Joey Bada$$ . When a fan complimented T-Pain's efforts on the then presumed remix , the singer responded with a behind-the-scenes tidbit.
'That's the original,' wrote Pain. 'They took me off. And put 21 on. Me and Joey had it first.'https://twitter.com/TPAIN/status/946267204357623808
Joey backed up T-Pain's claim and also revealed it was his first number one record on the Billboard Hot 100.
'This is facts,' said Joey. 'I actually co-wrote the song w post :) quietly got my first #1 off that more ghostwriting in 2018.'https://twitter.com/joeyBADASS/status/946548242287923200
In a September interview with Billboard , Post Malone briefly spoke about Bada$$ being in the studio when he first heard the beat for 'rockstar.' However, he didn't mention that the Brooklyn rapper had a hand in writing the song.
'Joey Bada$$ was in there,' said Malone. 'We were just vibing on it and the melody was sick. We just cut like a little scratch vocal and we took it back to LA. I finished my part and sent it off to  Savage -- and there it is.'
