“Candy Paint” is a song recorded by American rapper Post Malone, taken from the soundtrack of the 2017 action film The Fate of the Furious (2017). “Candy Paint” was released on April 17, 2017, as the soundtrack’s sixth single in the United States. The song’s audio was uploaded to Atlantic Records’ YouTube channel on April 13, 2017.
Produced by Louis Bell and Post himself, “Candy Paint” is a flex record from the Fate of the Furious soundtrack album. On October 19, 2017, however, Post re-released the song as a single, possibly hinting that it will appear on his upcoming sophomore album, Beerbongs & Bentleys.
The song features the general theme of a hot whip with a candy-paint finish, along with references to Post’s wealth and success. Post himself has a custom Ford Explorer that has a blue candy-paint finish with “the white on top” and Lambo-style doors which inspired this song.
Post took the car onto the show, Inside West Coast Customs, in episode seven of the sixth season, titled “Post Malone’s Old Skool Explorer”.
