Travi$ Scott’s Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight was released last week, and to many Travis fans’ dismay, it didn’t actually feature Brian McKnight. Well, Scott heard your wishes and delivers with a collaborative video featuring the R&B legend himself.
In a teaser he uploaded on his official YouTube page, Scott and McKnight share a one-minute clip of them chilling out to “One Last Cry," which is a single on his 1992 self-titled debut, on a hilltop overlooking Los Angeles. In a series of slow-motion scenes, McKnight is by a grand piano wearing all white. There are doves uncaged and flying into distance somewhere. And Scott looks like someone really broke his heart. It’s fucking amazing.
The video, titled “Bitch U Broke My Heart,” serves as a promo for Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight. You gotta give it up for Scott—he actually convinced McKnight to do this.
There will be more Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight-related content in the coming months. Scott confirmed with DJ Whoo Kid that he’s working on a film for the project. In the meantime, check out the teaser video above.
