The pair would make sense as country music and hip-hop's next crossover collaborators. When comparing their down-to-earth, fan-friendly personalities, Combs is the Posty of Nashville and Posty is the Combs of Los Angeles. A duet, be it a CMA Fest show-stealer or an in-studio mashup, would simultaneously elevate a country star and a rapper's already huge audiences.

For the uninitiated, Post Malone is a pop culture phenomenon whose 2018 album Beerbongs & Bentleys debuted atop the Billboard 200 albums chart and broke several streaming records. He's on the very short list of artists with the same type of cultural clout as country singer turned pop superstar Taylor Swift and 2019's breakout star, Billie Eilish.
Combs reigns as one of the hottest young country artists, and his new album What You See is What You Get continues one of the hottest two-album runs in recent memory.
Realistically, working together would gain Combs even more love than the 23 thousand likes racked up by his response to the Post Malone question. As for Malone, he could live out the country music fantasy he clearly harbors based on his carefree dancing to Shania Twain during this year's American Music Awards.
If the prolific songwriters need ideas for a song, there's ample fan-made mashups that should get their creative juices flowing.
Or they could just write a commercial jingle.
