Travis Scott is one of the biggest artists in the world and closes the charts for a few weeks every time he releases new music. Everything he drops is destined to be a huge commercial success, with all of his latest singles making an impact on the Billboard Hot 100.

La Flame has one of the most anticipated albums of the year, provoking Utopia over the past few months on social media as the next chapter in his star-studded music career. Not much information has been released about the high-profile project, as the details seem to be locked in Travis’s camp, but during his latest interview with Robert Rodriguez for iD magazine, the rap star revealed a few secrets.

“I never tell people this, and I’ll probably keep it a secret, but I’m working with new people and I’m just trying to expand the sound,” he said of his new album. “I’ve been making beats again, rapping to my own beats, just putting everything together and trying to really grow it. That has been one of the most fun things about working on this album. I’m evolving, collaborating with new people, delivering a completely new sound, a whole new range. “

When asked if you feel the pressure to create something as great as AstroworldTravis explains that he is not concerned about doing something along the same lines. “It’s never about repeating myself, I’m just trying to do the next series … each album is like a series,” he said. “I don’t feel any pressure, except to keep the fans alive. There’s a lot more ground I can cover, and I want to cover it, and I love the challenge. I want to make a fucking new sound. I could spend days banging my head against the wall trying to figure it out, but once I do, it’s like ultimate ecstasy. “

While the pandemic has affected everyone equally, Travis says he has been able to devote more time to music, which is great for all of his fans. “It made me a lot more productive,” he added. “You know, you’re not going to do any shows. You don’t really travel too much. You in the crib, and I have the studio at home and I have the peace of mind of recording all day, you know? A little when I can’t travel and, you know , just see the land. “

Travis ends by saying that the album is “coming soon” so we can all sleep well knowing that Utopia It’s almost here. Are you excited to rage?
