I'm Gonna Be

Album: Hollywood's Bleeding (2019)
Charted: 33
  • "I'm Gonna Be" is a joyous celebration of letting loose without caring what other people think.

    I do what I want, Tom Ford on the yacht, ooh
    Richard Mille my watch, thousand dollar Crocs, ooh
    They tryna tell me that it's luck
    You probably think I made it up

    Post has talked in past interviews about his affinity for Crocs. The rapper's fandom of the much-maligned plastic footwear fits in with the song's message of having fun and living your own truth.
  • The uplifting track contrasts with the majority of the songs on Hollywood's Bleeding; they find Malone angry and/or depressed, usually because of friends or lovers letting him down. He told Spotify:

    "I wanted to put in positivity and also the sad stuff. But, I like this record 'cause I think it's an encouragement to everyone who might be struggling with self-confidence, or whatever, to just do whatever the hell you want 'cause you're a rockstar. And just be yourself, and don't listen to anybody. And that's a message that I talk about a lot but it's something that I really believe in. 'Cause nowadays it's tough, there's a lot of people that want to bring you down, and tell you that your pants are too tight."
