If you are a die-heart Travis Scott fan, chances are you know what’s happening. La flame has dropped two new songs, “Escape Plan” and “Mafia”. The songs are likely from his forthcoming album “Utopia”. The rapper is expected to reveal an exclusive collaboration with Nike in his upcoming AstroWorld Festival as well. Scott wants to end 2021 in his style and take over 2022. In this week’s FS Reads, we talk about everything Travis Scott.
Travis teased the release of new music on Thursday by revealing the cover art. The cover art is inspired by ‘Weekly World News”- Fictional news which covers stories dealing with the supernatural. Out of the two songs, ‘Escape Plan’ was first debuted live by Travis at the Rolling Loud 2021 concert in Miami where he publicly performed the verse. The song is originally produced by Nik D and Oz. Meanwhile, The track ‘Mafia’ features vocals from J cole and production from jahaan sweet and Boi-1da with Mike Dean credited as the mastering engineer of the whole project.
Although it’s been 3 years since Travis put out an album, he’s hardly out of the public eye. He made an appearance in every major record like Donda, CLB, Punk with killer verses. It’s safe to say that he doesn’t MISS. However, the question is whether he is dropping the album “Utopia” this year or not. While the Houston rapper has confirmed several times that his album will be dropping in 2021, he has failed to give his fans a date. It’s pretty hard to speculate the drop but we all can manifest its release.
Talking about the AstroWorld festival, Scott announced a week-long Astroweek schedule of events that include activations and frequent collaborators Nike and Jordan brands. Sneaker fans will get a chance to get a look at Unreleased/Unnamed Travis Scott X Nike shoes through the brand’s SNKRS Pass feature.
