Travis Scott “Highest in the Room”: Listen to New Song
La Flame is back!
Travis Scott has released his long-awaited single, “Highest in the Room,” at midnight on Friday (Oct. 4). The song was initially teased during Kylie Jenner’s cosmetics ad back in March.
The new dreamy banger is produced by OZ and Nik D and appears to have Travis speaking on his relationship with Kylie Jenner, whom he recently broke up with.
"She saw my eyes, she know I'm gone (Ahh)/I've seen some things that you might fear/'I’m doing a show, I'll be back soon' (Soon)/That ain't what she wanna hear (Nah)," he raps. "Now I got her in my room (Agh)/Legs wrapped around my beard/Got the fastest car, it zoom (Skrrt)/Hope you make it out of here (Ahh)."
Young Thug provides additional uncredited vocals to the track on Travis' second verse following Flame's smooth chorus of "I got room in my fume (Yeah)/She fill my mind up with ideas/I'm the highest in the room (It’s lit)/Hope I make it out of here (Let's go)."
Scott has also released a trippy, futuristic video for the single directed by Dave Meyers.
"I just gotta always be able to come up with the ill shit to deliver to the fans. I’m glad I’m able to get to this point right now I’ve been ready to drop this shit forever," he said. "To be honest it was sort of just something I wanted to perform at the tie. I was just performing it this is at a point where I’ve done it at so many shows and it’s been so fun doing it I was like man I gotta just drop this and I’m gearing up for something more special to come following that."
In other Travis-related news, the Texas rhymer revealed he is working on his follow-up to his 2018 project Astroworld and is thinking of ways to deliver fans new music while they wait for it to be completed.
"I’m at the point where I’m just trying to cook up some dope shit and drop "Highest in the Room," and maybe put something around it," he said. "Yeah, I mean shit I’m in no rush frankly but I’m taking my time to come up with the next album but I’m always down to drop music and serve some packs to the fans. It’s time for the fans to eat."
