Travis Scott has folks talking with his new album Utopia. With features from Beyoncé and his daughter Stormi and a diss to his baby mama Kylie Jenner’s new man, it’s a lot. Deets inside.
It’s a song fans believe Beyoncé has been teasing for months, actually. But it was def a surprise to learn she’s featured on Travis Scott’s new album, Utopia, that just dropped yesterday.
Sneak glimpses of the single art for “DELRESTO (ECHOES)” could be spotted on the Renaissance World Tour. When she’s performing her hit “America Has a Problem” from behind a news anchor’s desk, behind her, stock tickers and headlines blast across the concert’s massive screens. In one of these on-screen flashes, a newspaper called “The Echo” covers the length of the screen. Could it be a nod to her and Travis’ song? The cover art seemingly points to this.
Also with a surprise appearance on Travis’ album – his adorable 5-year-old daughter Stormi Webster.
On the song, “Thank God,” little Stormi makes her first rap song cameo.
“Storm’s a minor, but you know she livin’ major,” Scott, whose real name is Jacques Webster, rapped on the song. Stormi is then heard responding, “That’s right, Daddy.”
And he may be all in as Daddy Travis to Stormi, but his co-parenting relationship with ex Kylie Jenner seems to have hit a little snag. He seems to be in his feelings about Kylie moving on with actor Timothee Chalamet, star of the upcoming Wonka movie.
In the track, Travis raps, “Chocolate AP and chocolate the Vs (Vs), got the Willy Wonka factory (Vs) / Burn a athlete like it’s calories, find another flame hot as me, b*tch.”
Not him beefing with the new Willy Wonka!
On another note, details from Travis’ interview with Houston police right after the Astroworld tragedy have leaked, and they show he was definitely told he needed to stop the concert, but he decided not to because he didn’t see “a huge commotion in the crowd” and was “in a trance” from the music. The report does note Travis was clearly concerned about the condition of the victims when he was talking with cops, asking about the status of those who had been hospitalized.
Travis’ knowledge of what was going on is important when determining his culpability in the matter in ongoing legal disputes.
