Travis Scott Returns to the Stage at Billboard Music Awards
Six months after the Astroworld tragedy, Travis Scott returned to the stage at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas.
Following an introduction from Diddy and French Montana, the Houston rapper performed “Mafia,” one of two songs he dropped last year, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Wearing fur pants and wraparound sunglasses, he transported viewers to the Alps during his icy performance.
Joined by a DJ and model Jazelle, La Flame also gave fans a peak into Utopia with an unreleased song called “Lost Forever,” for which snippets previously leaked online.
Earlier in the evening, Travis hit the red carpet with Kylie Jenner and their daughter Stormi.
This marks his first awards show performance since the Astroworld Festival in November, which resulted in 10 deaths. Travis, who previously performed at a paid gig during Race Week in Miami, is slated to headline the Primavera Sound festivals in South America this November.
Travis appears to be in comeback mode as he readies his long-awaited album Utopia. Last month, he teamed up with Future on Southside’s single “Hold That Heat.”
