Travis Scott Astroworld Album
Astroworld is a Hip Hop/Psychedelic Rap album, which features elements from Trap music and Psychedelic Music. Astroworld follows American rapper Travis Scotts second studio album Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight (2016), as well as his collaboration Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho (2017), with Quavo. Larry Fitzmaurice of Pitchfork has called Astroworld American rapper Travis Scotts strongest album to date, saying his mastery of curation helps to carve out a gooey, dank, psychedelic world, featuring blinding production and strange delights at every turn, though considering Scott plays the ringmaster to his neon-decayed sound circus, instead of being the star attraction. The album the song appears on, 2016s Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight, captured Scott at a point where he is honed in on refining the rawer edges of his sound, with more daring hooks and a slower leaning toward more orderly song structures.
Such is the case with Astroworld, surely his strongest release to date. Twenty-four hours after dropping a date on Astroworld, Astroworld, Travis Scott returned on Tuesday (July 31) with artwork for his elusive third album. After completely dominating the rap landscape with worldwide hits such as Pick Up The Phone, Goosebumps, and Antidote, Travis Scotts singular ambitions are set to be realized on Travis Scotts third studio album.
