HITS Daily Double


In the biggest crossover since Mothra vs. Godzilla, country superstar Morgan Wallen and rock/rap monarch Post Malone have released their new collaboration, “I Had Some Help,” accompanied by a music video.

Radio programmers at Country, Pop and other formats must be drooling into their açaí bowls this morning given the stature of the two artists. "Help" quickly flew to #1 at iTunes and is perched in Apple Music's overall Top 15 as of this writing.

The pair had plenty of help making the song, which was written by Malone, Wallen, Louis Bell, Ryan Vojtesak, Ashley Gorley, Ernest Keith Smith, Chandler Paul Walters and Hoskins. “I Had Some Help” was produced by Bell, Charlie Handsome and Hoskins and is being released by Mercury Records/REPUBLIC in partnership with Big Loud Records.

The single offers a foretaste of Malone’s first full-length country album, due later this year. Last month, he and Wallen debuted the track at the Stagecoach festival in Indio, California.

Malone will further tantalize the country world by performing at the Academy of Country Music Awards on 5/16, although there's no word yet if Wallen will join him again.
