Travis Scott Teases 'Utopia'
Travis Scott continues to work on Utopia.
The Houston rapper has stayed away from social media in the wake of the Astroworld tragedy, but he returned to Instagram on Friday (Jan. 14) to share a series of photos, including one of himself at the beach.
He also seemingly confirmed that Utopia is on the way, posting a pic of a pair of black Apple AirPods Max headphones engraved with the name of his fourth album.
The beach photo may have been taken in Mexico where Travis has been recording Utopia, the follow-up to 2018’s Astroworld.
In a recent interview with Billboard, producer Wheezy revealed that he was headed to Cabo to finish the project. “Yeah, still working on it and putting the finishing touches on that,” he said. “He’s back in Cabo working on it and I’m going out there soon. I’m going out there probably in the next two or three weeks to link up with him.”

Travis previously said that Utopia would feature a “whole new sound.”
“I never tell people this, and I’m probably going to keep it a secret still, but I’m working with some new people and I’m just trying to expand the sound,” he told i-D magazine. “I’ve been making beats again, rapping on my own beats, just putting everything together and trying to grow it really. That’s been one of the most fun things about working on this album. I’m evolving, collaborating with new people, delivering a whole new sound, a whole new range.”
The day before the deadly Astroworld events on Nov. 4, Travis dropped a pair of tracks, “Mafia” and “Escape Plan,” but it’s unclear if they will appear on Utopia.
Meanwhile, he and Kylie Jenner are expecting their second child. Kylie shared photos from their baby shower on Instagram.
