If you thought The Weeknd singing songs about cocaine benders at the Super Bowl wasn't absurd enough, another concert is likely to offer some competition in the very near future. This February 27, Post Malone will perform a virtual concert as part of Pokémon Day, an online event celebrating the 25th anniversary of the animated Japanese fantasy creature slavery franchise. Watch a trailer above, and let's pray that we'll see an animated Post rapping "I got me some braids and I got me some hoes" while surrounded by Psyducks.
The show will stream for free at 7PM on the Pokémon YouTube channel, Twitch page, and official website. “I’ve been a Pokémon fan for a long time, so the opportunity to headline the Pokémon Day concert celebrating 25 years is awesome,” Post Malone said in a press statement.
Post Malone's concert is part of the ongoing P25 Music program, a year-long celebration of Pokémon created in conjunction with Universal Music Group. Katy Perry was announced as the first artist for the event last month, and a press release promises "more music surprises" to come.
