While there aren’t many positives, one thing that’s come from the current Coronavirus pandemic is the increase in creativity in regards to content creation. We’ve already seen many of our favorite artists deliver live battles and performances using social media — Travis Scott has decided to take the art of performance-in-quarantine a few steps further. Tonight, the Houston star held a concert — dubbed “Astronomical” — in the online video game Fortnite, arriving as a gigantic version of himself to the delight of all who virtually attended. Fans were also treated to a new “skin” that turned their characters into Scott during the massive event.
During the concert, Travis Scott also blessed the world by teasing a new track titled “The Scotts,” a new collaboration featuring his idol Kid Cudi — now, that single is available for all to enjoy in its entirety. Produced by Mike Dean, Dot Da Genius, Plain Pat, and Take A Daytrip, the aggressive cut sees the two sending a message to their opponents, including the police:
“We see the hype outside, right from the house, took it straight from outside, straight to the couch/
We put the mic outside, air that s*** out, you lettin’ The Scotts outside, we runnin’ the scouts/
Ain’t no controllin’ the game, they never leave, I got tats over my veins, ‘cause that what I bleed…/”
