Ozzy Osbourne has a top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 pop singles chart for the first time since 1989 thanks to his contributions on Post Malone‘s “Take What You Want”. The song was included on the rap star’s new studio album, Hollywood’s Bleeding, released on September 6th via Republic Records.
Osbourne’s last trip to the exclusive island of Billboard hits came back when he appeared on a duet alongside The Runaways’ Lita Ford on the song “Close My Eyes Forever”, which appeared on Ford’s 1988 solo album, Lita. Ozzy’s return to the charts also sets a new Billboard record for the longest time between Hot 100 appearances, breaking Dobie Gray‘s former mark of 30 years and two months between 1973 and 2003.
“I’d never even heard of this kid. He wanted me to sing on his song ‘Take What You Want,’ so I did and then one thing led to another,” Osbourne mentioned recently about his surprise involvement with one of pop music’s biggest hit-makers of the moment. “I started recording a new album with Post Malone’s producer Andrew Watt. It’s only nine tracks but it was a catalyst to get me to where I am today.”
“Take What You Want” is just one of three Post Malone tracks currently sitting in the top 10 positions on the chart alongside “Circles” which is at No. 4 and “Goodbyes” (feat. Young Thug) at No. 3.

Osbourne was forced to postpone a run of tour dates back in the spring due to complications from a fall he suffered in February that required surgery. The European and U.K. leg of his No More Tours 2 Tour is set to pick up again early next year beginning on January 31st with a show at Motorpoint Arena Nottingham in Nottingham, UK.
