Before You Go
Perhaps he was alluding to more new music with Travis for their recently-formed rap duo The Scotts, after their track of the same titled debuted at #1 on the prestigious Billboard Hot 100.
Travis Scott and Kid Cudi’s new collaboration “THE SCOTTS” (Cactus Jack, Epic, Wicked Awesome) enters the Billboard Hot 100 at #1, following its premiere last weekend during the record-breaking one-of-a-kind Fortnite in-game experience. The first release from the two artists as a group, “THE SCOTTS” marks the third time Travis Scott has reached #1 on the Hot 100 following 2018’s “SICKO MODE,”and 2019’s “HIGHEST IN THE ROOM,” while also becoming the first time Kid Cudi has reached the #1 spot on the Hot 100 chart. “THE SCOTTS” debuted #1 on Apple Music in the US, #1 on Spotify US and Global Charts, and earned the biggest global Spotify streaming debut of 2020. The track’s #1 debut on Spotify Global Chart makes this Travis’s second Global #1 debut after last year’s triple-platinum “HIGHEST IN THE ROOM.”
