Post Malone is planning to try his hand as a video game streamer with a run of charity livestreams. Called “Gaming For Love,” the streams are scheduled to take place on July 18, 20, 22, and 24 on Malone’s Twitch, with each stream starting at 6 p.m. PT and set to run for six hours apiece.

During that time, Malone will be playing Apex Legends, and the game’s developer Respawn Entertainment will be donating $10,000 during each stream. Viewer donations will benefit different non-profits for each broadcast: Human Rights Watch (July 18), Project HOPE (July 20), United Way (July 22), and The Trevor Project (July 24).

Malone said in a statement, “Tune in as I game for love & raise money for Human Rights Watch, United Way, Project HOPE, & The Trevor Project. And shout out to Apex Legends & Respawn Entertainment for their support. Donate & spread love.”

Earlier this month, Malone debuted a 40-minute concert film and visual album that premiered on Venues within Horizon Worlds.

Directed by Lewis Smithingham and produced by Westbrook Media and Media.Monks, the 180-degree experience, created specifically for VR, coincided with the recent release of Post Malone’s new album Twelve Carat Toothache. The immersive performance, with special appearances by The Kid Laroi, Fleet Foxes, and Roddy Ricch, allowed viewers to see and hear his raw journey through the ups and downs of life, pleasure and pain, light and dark, fame and decay.

It was recently announced that Post’s global hit single “Rockstar (featuring 21 Savage)”has become the rapper’s latest music video to reach the milestone of one billion views on YouTube.

The track was originally released in 2017 as the lead singer from the star’s 2018 second album, Beerbongs & Bentleys. Upon its release, it reached the No.1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US, where it spent eight weeks at the top – the longest run at No.1 for a hip-hop song in 2017.

It also rocketed to the top of the charts around the world, including in the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, and more. It has reached Diamond-certified status in the US and is currently four-times Platinum in the UK.
