It’s extremely unlikely there’s any hip-hop fan who hasn’t heard Travis Scott’s 2016 hit “Goosebumps” by now. The Houston rapper recently teamed up with HVME to bring forth a revamped version of the track, giving it a twist that makes it sound even more festival ready than it was before. On the new remix, the familiar lyrics remain untouched:
I get those goosebumps every time, yeah, you come around, yeah. You ease my mind, you make everything feel fine./ Worried ‘bout those comments. I’m way too numb, yeah, it’s way too dumb, yeah. I get those goosebumps every time, I need the Heimlich. Throw that to the side, yeah. I get those goosebumps every time, yeah. When you’re not around (Straight up). When you throw that to the side, yeah (It’s lit). I get those goosebumps every time, yeah.
As most already know, the track is taken from his widely successful Birds In the Trap Sing McKnight project. The album was released back in 2016, containing 14 songs and boasting smash hits like “wonderful,” “through the late night,” and “pick up the phone.” Since then, he dropped his ASTROWORLD project in 2018, riding the success of that project for the next few years by touring and even hosting an entire Astroworld festival dedicated to the body of work.
We typically don’t hear much from Travis Scott outside of music and major partnerships, but as previously reported by REVOLT, he shared his thoughts in relation to social justice in an interview last year, and more importantly, how he plans to make a difference. “You’re trying to get to a point where people are finally seeing the oppression that’s been happening and overlooked and that we — as a culture — have been fighting through every day,” Scott tells the outlet. “Houston, I got to tap in, know my officials. That means we got a voice to try to make change. People are listening, you know what I mean? And we want to try to make sure they understand that I’m a tool.”
