We might be seeing one of 2018’s best collaborations very, very soon. On Wednesday, Travis Scott took to Instagram to post a photo of himself with the legend Stevie Wonder. In the image, we see Scott and Wonder sitting next to each other at a table. The caption had nothing but a globe emoji.
In January, Scott declared to Billboard that his “next album is going to have Stevie,” adding, “Well, I’m trying. We’re talking.” In the photo, it certainly looks like that's exactly what the two are doing. And with the caption, we can only assume that Scott is referring to his forthcoming third album AstroWorld, which, according to Billboard, is predicted to drop in the first quarter of 2018.
Scott definitely has a knack for features. He told Billboard, “I love working by myself, but I’m a producer—that’s how I started,” he said, adding, “I don’t ever think of features as just, like, features. I think of them as a purpose. Like, this motherfucker was meant to be on this; the world needs to hear them. It’s like they’re an instrument.”
His 2016 album Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight was infused with features, with heavyweights like André 3000, Kid Cudi, and Kendrick Lamar guesting on songs. We can only imagine how unbelievable a joint effort between Scott and Wonder would be.
Scott has had a busy 2018. The rapper and Kylie Jenner welcomed their first child together, Stormi Webster, in early February. Scott also landed a pretty big feature on the Black Panther soundtrack, curated by Kendrick and Top Dawg Entertainment, which saw Scott and Kendrick working together again. So at this point, with the year Scott's having, we already know that AstroWorld is going to be something extraordinary.
