OZZY OSBOURNE And POST MALONE Release Official Live Video For 'Take What You Want'

This past week, Ozzy Osbourne returned to the stage for the first time in nearly a year when he joined Post Malone to perform their Top 10 Billboard hit "Take What You Want" at two shows in Los Angeles. Things kicked off Thursday (November 21) night when the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee and Grammy-winning singer and songwriter came together with Malone for the final 2019 show of his "Runaway Tour" at the Forum in Los Angeles. They were accompanied by producer and guitarist Andrew Watt. Watch a clip of the "Take What You Want" performance — filmed by Adam DeGross — below.

Osbourne and Malone followed this with another performance Sunday (November24) night at ABC's "American Music Awards" at the Microsoft Theatre where they were joined by Travis Scott and Watt who appear on the track. The live television performance marked Osbourne's debut performance on the show and his first television performance in more than 10 years.

"Take What You Want", which debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 chart at No. 8, marked Osbourne's first Hot 100 top 10 in over 30 years, as the BLACK SABBATH singer broke the record for the most time between top 10s in the chart's 61-year history.

One of Post's producers, Watt connected with Osbourne after meeting Ozzy's daughter Kelly at a friend's party and pitching her on the idea of Post and Ozzy collaborating together.

"Post has been a huge Ozzy fan since he was a kid," Louis Bell, who co-produced the song with Watt, told Billboard. "This was definitely a dream come true for him."

"The culture of metal music and hip-hop are very related," said Watt. "You see kids going fucking crazy at a Travis show, moshing, losing their minds — the same thing they were doing at Ozzy shows. This record in a weird way connects the culture of a kid at a hip-hop show wearing a METALLICA shirt.”

"Ozzy continues to remind the world why he's the superstar he is," added Bell. "This just continues to show people how impactful he is on music and the culture."

In an interview with The Sun, Ozzy credited the Post Malone collaboration with getting him "off his arse." The singer, who was left in intensive care earlier this year after a fight with pneumonia, explained: "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. 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.

"If it wasn't for making this record, I would still be on traction, thinking, 'I'm going to be lying here forever.' I've missed music so badly. My fans are so loyal and so good. Up until making the album, I thought I was dying. But that got me off my arse."
