Claire Shaffer of Rolling Stone reports:

Post Malone’s third studio LP, Hollywood’s Bleeding, arrived today (September 6th) featuring contributions from SZA, Kanye West, Young Thug, Swae Lee, Father John Misty and more. But perhaps the most surprising vocal feature comes from iconic Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne, who appears alongside Travis Scott on the track Take What You Want.

Osbourne – who contributes new vocals and not a sample – is the first voice we hear on the song, belting out the aching chorus, “I feel you crumble in my arms down to your heart of stone/You bled me dry just like the tears you never show/Why don’t you take what you want from me?/Take what you need from me/Take what you want and go.” Malone has spoken about his fondness for heavy metal in the past, and even played in a hardcore band before he became a pop-chart dominator, so this feature feels very full-circle.

Listen to Osbourne’s contributions below and read more at Rolling Stone.

    Whether you like the song or not is a matter of what sounds good to your ears. However, it should be noted that there are no samples in this song (sorry, Billy Squier!). It’s an original track, written and played (and programmed). It just happens to have some rap vocals and Ozzy.

    Sounds cool to me….

    Hopefully some 13 year old kid hears this and runs out to buy Master Of Reality……Probably not.

    Tried to listen to this unbiased and open minded, and honestly it’s not what I expected.
    Thought that this was going to be some gangsta rap with Ozzy saying a line or a repeating over dub stuck in, but it’s more like a song with a melody and no macho man phrases at all.
    Do I feel compelled to listen to the rest of the album? Probably not, but I did listen to this at least once before I judged it.
    Been listening to a lot of Iron Maiden in anticipation of Eddie’s top 20, that’s more my style.

    No thanks! I thought we were done with this sh-t! You couldn’t pay me to listen to this crap! Why even acknowledge it? This is why this rap crap won’t go away! Doesn’t matter who’s “collaborating” with who, do your ears a favor and DON’T LISTEN to this sh-t!
    – “won’t ever change
    may think it’s strange
    You Can’t Kill Rock And Roll
    it’s here to stay” – really Ozzy? Keep doing this sh-t and you WILL kill it!

    This song is part of what is wrong with the music business this song was created to safely reach as many people as possible while trying to shamelessly cross over to rock for part of their audience- it’s so sad … this song is complete garbage too me – but it’s probably going to do well because there is a huge following for this kind of music –
