An alternate version of Post Malone’s ‘rockstar’ surfaced on the Internet, which people thought was a remix that featured T-Pain and Joey Bada$$. But little did we know that the version with T-Pain and Joey Bada$$ was the original version.
T-Pain first spoke out about the leaked version of ‘rockstar’ when a fan tweeted him about it. T-Pain didn’t go into detail about why he and Joey were swapped out of the song but Joey Bada$$ did go on to Twitter to confirm T-Pain’s comment.
In an interview with Billboard, Post Malone talked about Joey Bada$$ being in the studio during the recording of the song but never went into detail about the extent of Joey’s contribution to the song.
Listen to the version of ‘rockstar’ with T-Pain and Joey Bada$$ down below.
That’s the original. They took me off. And put 21 on. Me and Joey had it first
