The release of the highly anticipated album Utopia by Travis Scott came out yesterday. The Weeknd and Bad Bunny both contribute lyrics to that half-baked prerelease song, but nevertheless Scott is able to enlist even more prominent talent, particularly Beyoncé.
Despite doing perfect three-hour sets for three months straight on her global Renaissance stadium tour, the performer nevertheless found time to appear on the song "Delresto (Echoes)." It has James Blake listed as the composer, yet he couldn't resist appearing on both "Til Further Notice" with 21 Savage and "Lost Forever" with Westside Gunn. Rapper Playboi Carti provided a rare line to Scott for the song "Fe!n," which also features Sheck Wes. Drake stopped his Instagram thirst traps and days at the races to get to the recording studio for "Meltdown." Sincerably, the number of successful collaborations is endless. SZA and Future collaborated on the song "Telekinesis." Song by Kid Cudi called "Looove."
A Teezo Touchdown on "Modern Jam." Young Thug, who is being charged with RICO, appears on "Skitzo." A reminder of the amount of pull Scott has, even after tragedy, Scott damn near gathered the whole industry for his first complete comeback since the Astroworld record and ensuing tragedy. Highlighting the benefits was arguably the best promotional strategy for Scott to use; his simultaneous release of Circus Maximus and will-he, won't-he perform in Egypt was far more puzzling than just stating, "Listen to my album, it has Beyoncé." Let us know your thoughts on the album!
