Turns out Post Malone is very serious about his love for Australia's own Lime Cordiale.
It has been confirmed today that the US rapper's joint entity with his manager, Dre London, London Cowboys, have partnered with Chugg Music for a joint management and label deal with the Sydney duo.
Speaking to The Music today, industry legend Michael Chugg said Malone first got into Lime Cordiale's music when he was on tour in the country earlier this year.
"Post was in the country, somebody in Brisbane played Dre London some Lime Cordiale music. Post loved it," Chugg said.

"The band spent three nights backstage playing beer pong with Post at [Sydney's Qudos Bank Arena] listening to all their music.
"We got Dre to fly up to Byron Bay on the last tour and he caught the band in pouring rain with 1,300 fans at the Broken Head Hotel and loved it. For anybody to fly on a small plane to Byron Bay and stand in the rain for an hour, it confirmed to us that he was totally real about it."
London said of the deal, "There’s so much we can do with the band in the USA and globally and together we’re going to make history".
Lime Cordiale are expected to release new music this month, which will be released through Chugg Music and the partnership with London Cowboys.
The band will kick off a US tour next week before returning to Australia in October for an extensive tour; check out theGuide for more details.
Meanwhile, Malone will be looking to score his second-straight #1 album tomorrow with his latest album, Hollywood's Bleeding.
