Ozzy Osbourne earns first top-10 Hot 100 hit in 30 years with Post Malone collaboration

Republic RecordsOzzy Osbourne‘s collaboration with Post Malone, “Take What You Want,” has reached the number 10 spot on the Billboard Hot 100, giving the Prince of Darkness his first top-10 hit on the all-genre chart in 30 years.

According to Billboard, Ozzy last reached the top 10 all the way back in 1989, when he hit number eight on the Hot 100 with “Close My Eyes Forever,” his duet with Lita Ford.

That actually breaks the record for the longest gap between top-10 Hot 100 hits. Ozzy’s wait was a total of 30 years and three months, narrowly beating out previous record-holder Dobie Gray.

Gray reached the top 10 in 1973 with “Drift Away,” and then again 30 years, two months and one week later in 2003 with a new version of the same song, recorded with Uncle Kracker.

“Take What You Want,” also featuring rapper Travis Scott, appears on Post Malone’s new album Hollywood’s Bleeding, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200.
