Travis Scott Drops 3 New Songs

It’s lit x3.

As he gears up for his third album AstroWorld, Travis Scott unleashes three new fiery tracks, including a collaboration with Playboi Carti.

First up is “A man” (pronounced “amen”), which finds the Houston rapper counting his blessings. “You need to say grace before you say thanks,” raps an Auto-Tuned Travis. “Putting up the numbers / We ain’t keeping score, amen.”

For the second of three tracks, “Butterfly Effect,” Scott rides out over a wavy beat. “M&M’s, sweet like candy cane / Drop the top / Pop it, let it bang,” he sings.

On “Green & Purple,” Travis cooks up a trippy collabo with Playboi Carti. While La Flame provides the Auto-Tuned melodies (“Green and purple, got me goin’ in circles”), the “Magnolia” rapper comes through with some fire of his own.

It’s unclear if the songs will appear on his upcoming album AstroWorld, the follow-up to last year’s Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight. Scott, who was arrested over the weekend for inciting a riot at his Arkansas show, is currently on his “Birds Eye View Tour,” which wraps July 9 in Finland.

On July 12, he will join Kendrick Lamar on “The DAMN. Tour,” which kicks off in Phoenix.
