"Goodbyes" is a song by American rapper Post Malone, featuring American rapper Young Thug, released as a single via Republic Records on July 5, 2019, a day after Malone's 24th birthday, as well as Independence Day or the 4th of July.[3] The song was written by Austin Post, Jeffery Williams, Tom Owen-Savage, Brian Lee, Louis Bell, Billy Walsh, Val Blavatnik, and Jessie Foutz, and produced by Lee and Bell.[4] It became Malone's seventh top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, as well as his sixth number one on Billboard's Rhythmic chart, of which gave him, along with “Sunflower” and “Wow”, his first three consecutive Rhythmic No. 1s to come from one album, Hollywood's Bleeding, since Drake’s Scorpion spawned three chart leaders in 2018.[5]

Composition[edit]

The song talks about the end of a relationship, and was called "melodic" by Rap-Up, on which Post Malone sings the chorus: "I want you out of my head / I want you out of my bedroom tonight / There's no way I could save you / 'Cause I need to be saved too / I'm no good at goodbyes."[6]

Promotion[edit]

Post Malone announced the track and its feature and release date on social media on July 1, 2019, sharing an image styled like a film poster for the song, featuring the tagline "Too Much Pleasure Is Pain", a line from the song. He then revealed the cover art of the song on social media on July 2. He then posted a snippet of the beginning of the video of him being stabbed and killed by the enemy team on July 3. The music video was published on the day of the song's release on July 5 and the lyric video was published three days after on July 8.[6]

Music video[edit]

The original "R" rated music video was released alongside the song on July 5, and directed by Colin Tilley. It features Malone playing a gang member who dies after being stabbed by a member of a rival gang, before rising from the dead in a graveyard. Young Thug and actress Kathryn Newton also appear in the video.[7] Due to the fact that Malone gets stabbed multiple times, including in the neck, YouTube made the video age-restricted as it is considered "graphic content", so there are two versions of the music video: one rated "R" and shows Post being stabbed and killed and one rated "PG" (published two days later on July 7) that does not show him being stabbed and killed.[8][9] It has over 100 million views as of January 2020.
