Post Malone unintentionally upset the BeyHive after sharing a heartwarming tribute to Taylor Swift on Instagram, in which he described her as a “once-in-a-lifetime” artist.

Following the release of their new track, Fortnite, which serves as the first single from Tortured Poets Department, and the music video in which he depicts his love interest, the 28-year-old rapper shared a cute black and white polaroid of them, accompanied by ‘a sincere legend.

“It’s once in a lifetime that someone like @taylorswift comes into this world,” he wrote. “I am touched by your heart and your spirit, and I am beyond honored to have been asked to help you on your journey. I love you so much. Thanks Tay.

Although most of her 25.8 million Instagram followers and Swifties found the message thoughtful, her words ruffled the feathers of some Beyoncé fans.

Post Malone unintentionally upset the BeyHive after sharing a heartwarming tribute to Taylor Swift on Instagram, in which he described her as a “once-in-a-lifetime” artist.

Fans of the superstar pointed out the stark difference between his tribute to Swift and the brief tribute he paid to the Texas Hold ‘Em hitmaker after she appeared on his track, Levii’s Jeans, released last month.

In stark comparison to his message for Swift, Malone simply shared a photo of the Cowboy Carter album cover and a sentence underneath, saying, “I love you @beyonce.”

On Sunday, an X user shared side-by-side tributes to their respective collaborators to highlight the length difference, which has been viewed 5.8 million times.

“I find this so interesting,” Beyoncé fans wrote.

One response suggested that Malone might simply have a “closer relationship with Taylor than with Beyoncé.”

“Taylor wrote two articles about him. He gave him the same energy. Stop crying for God’s sake,” another replied.

A third wrote: “You act like he cursed Beyoncé or said something bad like… I don’t see any problem.”

“Okay, but a full sentence would have been nice, that’s all,” the original poster responded.

Swift and Malone’s moving Fortnight music video was released Friday following the release of her long-awaited album.

The Grammy winner initially uploaded a black-and-white teaser for her fans on Thursday ahead of the music video’s premiere.

The singer was not only joined by Post, but also Dead Poets Society stars Ethan Hawke and Josh Charles, who made surprise appearances.

Moments before the video began, a countdown appeared on the screen with the sound of typewriters in the background.

A title card then appeared with “Fortnight” and imitated the beginning of a silent film.

The video then shows Taylor lying on a bed without a mattress, chained to the railing. The bed itself was placed high up on a wall inside a large room that appeared to be inside an asylum.

A doctor then walked in upside down on the ceiling while holding a tray of medications, with a bottle of pills labeled “Forget it.”

Taylor donned a strapless dress by Australian designer Toni Maticevski for the video, which had a dramatic neckline and fitted bodice.

The singer was not only joined by Post, but also by Dead Poets Society stars Ethan Hawke and Josh Charles, who made surprise appearances.

The skirt portion contained layered details as well as a thigh-high slit on the left side.

She paired this stunning piece with sheer white gloves as well as a custom vintage diamond choker from Joseph Saidian and Sons.

Taylor opted for a smoky shadow around her eyes as well as a bold shade on her lips, and her brows were masked while a thinner brow was drawn in with pencil, similar to 1920s style.

In the video, Taylor is seen running towards Post Malone and the two shared an embrace on an open road in the middle of the desert. Dark, graying clouds were visible above them.

A brief montage showed the couple growing closer as they shared some sweet moments. At one point, the rapper took Taylor’s face in his hands, causing her to flash a happy smile.

The singers looked into each other’s eyes as Post Malone’s tattoos were no longer visible on his face in the emotional scene. A tornado of papers swirled around them as the singer held out her hands toward Malone.

The clip was played to Taylor inside the asylum as he was surrounded by doctors, played by Dead Poets Society stars Ethan Hawke and John Charles. Post Malone was also considered one of the doctors.

Shortly after the music video’s release on Friday, Taylor took to her main Instagram page to share a series of behind-the-scenes images.

As the camera zoomed out, the newspapers reproduced Taylor’s face as the pieces continued to float from the sky.

A brief montage showed the two relaxing together as they shared some sweet moments.

Ethan and John began doing what appeared to be a form of electroshock therapy on Swift. But Malone cut the power to save Taylor.

She also shared a message to her fans about the meaning of the music video and wrote, “When I was writing the music video for Fortnight, I wanted to show you the worlds I saw in my head that served as the backdrop for making this music.” ‘

“Almost everything on it is a metaphor or reference to one corner or another of the album. For me, this video turned out to be the perfect visual representation of this record and the stories I tell on it.

She exclaimed: “@postmalone blew me away on set as a tortured tragic hero and I’m so grateful for everything he put into this collaboration.”

“I’m still laughing working with the coolest guys in the world, @ethanhawke and @mrjoshcharles (tortured poets, meet your colleagues down the hall, dead poets).”
