Travi$ Scott made good on his promise to fans and just released his long-awaited collaboration with Young Thug titled "Pick Up the Phone," which also features Quavo. This song first gained attention when Travi$ played it during the ANTI tour with Rihanna, though it was unclear what his plans for it were at the time. On the song, Thug and Travi$ trade infectious crooning over the spectacular production before connecting on an incredible hook that is all topped off by a standout verse from Quavo.
In the Soundcloud description for the track, Travi$ wrote that the song was supposed to go on iTunes tonight, but the labels made it complicated so he just put it out for free. Of course, Travi$ mentioned that there's a chance that the song gets taken down, while also teasing his next project, Birds In the Trap Sing McKnight, which is coming soon. As of right now, not much is known about the upcoming project, but Travi$ has apparently been working on it for quite a while, and first teased it when he released his "Uber Everywhere" remix two months ago.
The song was taken down from Travi$' SoundCloud but the rapper assured fans Friday morning that he was on the phone with Lyor Cohen, the founder of 300, trying to get the track back up as soon as possible. "LOVE TO QUAVO AND THUG. I JUST WANT THIS SONG TO COME OUT THE KIDS NEED THAT," he tweeted. You can now listen to the track below or on Apple Music here.
