Post Malone covering Hootie and the Blowfish’s iconic track “Only Wanna Be With You” in honor of the Pokemon Day Celebration is not something we had on our 2021 Bingo card. We knew that the superstar was going to kick off the franchise’s 25th anniversary, but we didn’t know just how big he would go!
It was announced early in 2021 that Post Malone would be honoring Pokemon with a virtual concert on February 27th to get the P25 celebration started. Not everyone was happy with the Hootie cover, though, with one Twitter user writing, “If Post Malone isn’t covering the PokéRap then what is the point?”
Here’s Post Malone’s cover so you can judge for yourself, and don’t forget to tune in on February 27th for the full virtual concert!
