Post Malone - Motley Crew

July 13, 2021

The music video of "Motley Crew" features a number of celebrities.
Post Malone releases the new single "Motley Crew".

The song marks the return of Post Malone to rap sounds, while the orchestration with intense use of the bass makes "Motley Crew" significantly different from the artist's latest album, the Grammy nominee "Hollywood's Bleeding" of 2019.

The title of "Motley Crew" is a tribute to the heavy metal band Mötley Crüe. In fact, Tommy Lee, founder and drummer of the band, participates in the video of the song.

The music video for "Motley Crew" was directed by Cole Bennett at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California.

In addition to Tommy Lee, the video features a number of guests, including NASCAR drivers Denny Hamlin and Bubba Wallace, as well as Big Sean, French Montana, Kerwin Frost, LoveLeo, SAINt JHN, Ty Dolla $ ign, Tyga, Pressa, Trinidad James and Tyla Yaweh.

The term "Motley Crew" refers to a heterogeneous group of unexpected people. Therefore, the song of the same name focuses mainly on the luxurious lifestyle of Post Malone and his diverse friends, who go through the screens.

"Motley Crew", released by Republic Records / Universal Music, is Post Malone's first official song of the year.

In February, the rapper and singer released a great cover of Hootie & the Blowfish's "Only Wanna Be With You" from the '90s on the occasion of his participation in the upcoming 25th anniversary Pokémon anniversary album.

"Motley Crew" is the lead single from the accompanying album that will be released by Post Malone for an upcoming documentary.
