Post Malone has officially released the drop date for his upcoming album Twelve Carat Toothache: June 3. The highly anticipated album is the artist's fourth studio album, following his majorly successful hit Hollywood's Bleeding, released back in 2019. Post has been keepin' us on our toes since then, so we're pumped to see what he's bringing to the table this time...
Posty took to social media to announce the official release date for Twelve Carat Toothache, with a blurry red image and a link to pre-save the album. We all know and love the White Iverson singer and can't wait to hear what the rapper has on tap for us this time around. The low-key rapper has kept out of the spotlight since his last album but took to Instagram Live to share a few snippets off his new mixtape, featuring artists such as Kid Laroi and Doja Cat. Post explained this album is "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."

Giving us a sneak peek of the upcoming album, the artist released One Right Now - a collab with The Weeknd, in November of last year, which debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100. As of now, there is no official tracklist released for Twelve Carat Toothache, but the artist has stated the album will come in at 45 minutes. So as we try and do the math, that could be anywhere from 10 to 15 songs? However, Post has explained, "Trying to shove 20 to 25 songs, it doesn't work."
The artist explained why he chose to keep the album small, saying, “Talking to the label [it’s like], ‘Oh, if you have less songs, you’re not going to stream as much,’ but the whole thing is that you don’t want to compromise your art and your gut vibe on anything. I’ve made a lot of compromises, especially musically, but now I don’t feel like I want to anymore. I don’t need a No. 1; that doesn’t matter to me no more, and at a point, it did.” However, it's likely Malone's album will debut at No. 1, regardless of how many songs make it to the final cut. Until then, stay tuned.
