If you’re not entirely convinced we’re living in a Black Mirror episode yet, this next bit should win you over. Digital agency space150 has concieved a new song created entirely by artificial intelligence, modeled after rap icon Travis Scott‘s signature sound.
The company spent two weeks inputting lyrics into a text generator model, allowing the AI to learn Travis Scott’s aural likeness. The end result, a virtually authentic sounding Travis Scott song titled “Jack Park Canny Dope Man,” contains fan-favorite vocal ad-libs “It’s Lit” and “Straight Up,” and boasts an excessive usage of autotune.
Space150’s executive creative director Ned Lampert said, “We were sort of fascinated with like, ‘What if we tried to make a song—like an actual good song—by using AI and basically creative directing AI?’ And so we chose Travis Scott just because he is just such a unique artist and he has a unique sound and everything sort of has an aesthetic to it, both audibly and visually.”
Between being drug dealers on Donald Glover’s Atlanta to partnering up with Popeyes, it is clear the Migos do not care what the public thinks about the way they get their bread. The Atlanta trio is joined by Travis Scott and Young Thug to reiterate this sentiment on, “Give No Fxk,” the first single from Culture III.
The gluttonous single is produced by Murda Beatz, who previously produces the group’s chart-topper “Motorsport” and Scott’s “Butterfly.” The psychedelic visual for “Give No Fxk,” directed by Quavo and Kazakh filmmaker Aisultan Seitov, displays a photosensitive seizure warning before diving into scenes of futuristic gothic chaos.
The dirty south crooners are no strangers to trading verses. Quavo most notably joined Thug on Scott’s double-platinum single “pick up the phone”—one of thirteen officials releases (among a stockpile of demos) between Scott and Thug.
Following the release Culture II in 2017, Quavo, Offset, and Takeoffreleased their respective solo albums in late 2018 and early 2019. Their forthcoming album is the group’s fourth studio album and third in the Culture series.
Scott and Thug are both scheduled to perform the second day of Rolling Loud Miami, so attendees should keep an eye out on possible guest appearances. Rolling Loud will be Scott’s third headlining set in less than one month after headlining at both weekends of Coachella.
After a trifecta of preluding singles, Justin Bieber’s fifth studio album, Changes, has arrived. Led by the production’s debut showing, “Yummy,” which Bieber promptly followed with the Kehlani-assisted “Get Me,” and Quavo feature, “Intentions,” Changes is the successor to Bieber’s last LP, Purpose, delivered in 2015. Lofty, bubblegum-sweet professions of love pervade Changes, which, from start to finish, arrives as a 17-track jaunt into R&B and pop hybrid territory.
Post Malone, Clever, Lil Dicky, and Travis Scott grace Changes, but otherwise, the vocal reigns rest firmly in the Biebs’ hands as he smoothly assumes sole vocal responsibility for much of the album’s inclusions.
Changes will be supported by a multi-city tour. The complete list of dates is available here.
Migos, Travis Scott, and Young Thug have teamed up for a new song called “Give No Fxk,” “GNF” for short. The all-star pairing debuted the track live last year at Scott’s Astroworld Festival.

Spring will come six weeks early according to the ever-reliable groundhog shadow, so Detroit producer MK has brought some welcomed early summer vibes to a new deep house remix of Ed Sheeran and Travis Scott’s “Antisocial.”
Sheeran is no stranger to dance remixes of his work. Sheeran’s latest album, No. 6 Collaboration Project, has already seen remixes from the likes of Sam Feldt, Jonas Blue, and Loud Luxury. He enlisted the help of Skrillex for “Way To Break My Heart” from the 2019 album.
MK has teased the remix during his sets last year, notably performing the remix at Creamfields. While the original version of “Antisocial” is influenced heavily by trap music, the bassline of MK’s remix provides the perfect backdrop for any club-goer who wishes to be left to their own devices. The veteran American producer is a fan of remixing British musicians, having released remixes to the work of Ellie Goulding,Disclosure, and Sam Smith among others.
Rare is an accurate title for a Selena Gomez album. Gomez, the former Disney Channel teen actress turned pop superstar and tabloid fixation, is part of the class of big-time pop singers who haven’t released a full-length project since the middle of last decade — a group that includes Adele, Rihanna, and her former boyfriends … More »
