I just found out this song exists because I was listening to “Love Galore” by SZA ft. Travis Scott and I let YouTube play while distracted doing other things and this one made me drop everything and check what was coming out of my computer.
I did not know there is a new Travis Scott album but I do know and blessing the algorithm.
We hear Drake, we hear Big Hawk, we hear Swae Lee. They’re each telling their own kind of disconnected but addictive story.
I’m going to listen to the other songs now. Find “SICKO MODE” on Travis Scott’s new album, Astroworld, which was released earlier this month.
At first, Korn were a myth to me. When they released their self-titled debut album in 1994, I was 11. I may have glimpsed their spooky dreadlocked scowls in magazines or TV ads, or wherever I found out about new music in that nascent internet era. But for a suburban Christian kid who spent his … More »
Travis Scott’s new album Astroworldunseated Drake atop the Billboard 200 chart. The album had the equivalent of 537,000 album sales in the US. He also just launched his Cactus Jack merch collection, so Scott’s feeling generous with his earnings. Tonight he wrote on Instagram and Twitter that he’s … More »
Travis Scott‘s newest album, the long-anticipated, ASTROWORLD, has proven itself extraplanetary, indeed. After a little over a week since its release, the album has eclipsed the number one spot on the Billboard 200 chart — beating out Drake‘s multiple-record-breaking double-sided album, Scorpion, which held a fierce five-week streak at the top. Somewhat ironically, Drake is among the flood of high-profile acts to be featured on the album (appearing on “SICKO MODE”), also including Frank Ocean, James Blake, Kid Cudi, The Weeknd, and even Stevie Wonder.
ASTROWORLD is the “Goosebumps” rapper’s third studio album, following his 2015 breakthrough release Rodeo followed by the following year’s Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight. Scott also capped off 2017 with his collaborative project with Quavo of Migos, Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho.
Despite its astronomical success, ASTRO didn’t arrive without its abundant share of hiccups, including a slew of false release date announcements and a sundry of production delays. The carnival-themed album stands as Scott’s second chart-topper, garnering a whopping equivalent of 537,000 album units, with 270,000 of those in traditional album sales.
For the eighth year in a row, I strolled into an all too familiar Lollapalooza at Chicago’s own Grant Park. As in years past, I found myself immediately met with groups of festival goers adorned in the staple Tune Squad jersey and all too many crop tops to count. Mutterings of lobster corndogs ran rampant,
HARD Summer 2018 has come and gone — the festival’s first year without founder of the HARD brand Gary Richards (a.k.a. Destructo) at the helm — and all seemed to go as planned. Recruiting some of today’s top talent in house, future bass, dubstep, and hip-hop, the weekend featured some powerhouse back-to-back sets from Dillon Francis & Diplo, Zeds Dead & Jauz, and A-Trak & Baauer. Travis Scott celebrated the release of his new album, Astroworld, and Mija dropped another set that completely embodies her “Fk A Genre” mantra.
With more sets from Marshmello, Ghastly, Louis the Child, and others, this weekend marked the beginning of a new chapter for the HARD organization. Check out some of the top sets of the weekend below.
Travis Scott released his star-studded new album Astroworld last week. Today, he shares the star-studded music video for the most star-studded track on the album, “Stop Trying To Be God,” which brings together Earth, Wind, & Fire’s Philip Bailey, James Blake, Kid Cudi, and Stevie Wonder. As it happens, Scott plays God in … More »
There’s a moment on Travis Scott’s new album Astroworld that’s among the prettiest things I’ve heard in recent memory, and Travis Scott doesn’t have anything directly to do with it. I’m talking about the part of “Stop Trying To Be God,” the album’s sixth song, where James Blake is singing and Stevie Wonder is playing … More »
Friday saw the release of two very big and long-awaited rap albums: Travis Scott’s Astroworld and YG’s Stay Dangerous. They’re not really competitors. Travis Scott’s album is the big event, the one dotted with big-name collaborators and full of grand, widescreen production. YG, meanwhile, is probably the best of rap’s B-list, … More »
