Just days after dropping his third studio album ASTROWORLD, Travis Scott has returned with a striking music video for the track "Stop Trying to be God." Both Kylie Jenner and James Blake make appearances in the video, which was directed by Dave Meyers and makes biblical references.
Love and thanks to everyone for the kind words regarding 'Stop Trying To Be God'. @trvisXX is the glue. An honour to be part of one of the rides at Astroworld <3< p> — James Blake (@jamesblake) August 6, 20183<>

ASTROWORLD, which boasts a long list of contributors such as Frank Ocean, Drake, Swae Lee, Gunna, Nav, 21 Savage, Quavo, Takeoff, Sheck Wes, and more, is poised to have a fantastic opening week. It's being projected that it will move an impressive 450,000 to 500,000 and debut at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart, dethroning Drake's Scorpion in the process. For comparison, 2015's Rodeo was able to move 90,940 copies in its first week and 2016’s Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight moved 88,000.
