Travis Scott sang "Goosebumps" Friday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live! The performance was visually arresting, featuring wild psychedelic visuals swirling behind the rapper. Travis even managed to work the host's name into the lyrics, to rapturous applause, and he ended the song by running into the audience.
Fans were thrilled by the unusual performance.
Scott released his sophomore album, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, in September. With the drop of his second album and a surge of public consciousness, 2016 was a banner year for him.

Thank you to fans
We first delved deep into the rapper’s story with a Dec. 2015/Jan. 2016 cover story. He also starred on night one of ComplexCon in November.
Scott's life has changed significantly in a year. Now he is one of the most recognizable names in hip-hop. This Christmas, he surprised his family with a new house.

And there are more good things to come. As we told you Wednesday, Scott has a collaboration with some of rap’s other major power players—Lil Uzi Vert and Quavo—coming soon.
The collab will be the theme song for The Fate of the Furious, the eighth film in the Fast & Furious franchise, which comes out in April.
