Think of two artists with more distinctive voices than Post Malone and Swae Lee. They can be picked out of a vocal lineup without blinking and they've become successful artists because of their killer choruses and larger-than-life personalities that add color to their cartoonish cadences.
When they collaborated on "Sunflower" from the soundtrack to Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse, it catapulted to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 because of their magical powers intertwining. This fall, that magic will be explored on a just-announced new tour that kicks off in September and ends in November.
The Runaway Tour is Malone's own beast, featuring Swae as a special guest along with Florida singer Tyla Yaweh. The fun begins on September 14 in Tacoma, Washington and runs through November, ending in Los Angeles on November 20. Aside from a show in Fresno, California on September 21, Swae will be there for the entirety of the tour.
That's a lot of opportunity for Post Malone/Rae Sremmurd crossovers. Hopefully, behind the scenes, the tour causes the two to create new music together. Tickets for the general public go on sale on July 19 at 10 a.m. at Live Nation.
Post is setting up for a massive close of the year. "Wow" peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in March, and earlier this month, he released "Goodbyes" with Young Thug. Earlier this year, Swae revealed that he had some solo hits up his sleeve and that a new Rae Sremmurd album would be coming before this year is up.
This tour looks to be the connecting vehicle carrying both Post Malone and Swae Lee's 2019 shenanigans. It'll be interesting to see how they intersect and what will arise from these moments.
