It's safe to say Travis Scott fans are having a great day.
On Thursday night, the Houston rapper kicked off his "Astronomical" event on Fortnite, becoming the second artist to ever perform a concert within the game. There was, of course, plenty of memorable moments throughout the event, but one of the biggest highlights was when Travis shared a snippet of "The Scotts"—his unreleased collaborative joint with Kid Cudi.
Fans didn't have to wait too long before the song's official release. Just after the first "Astronomical" performance wrapped up, "The Scotts" appeared on all major streaming services. Scott also released physical copies of the single on his website. Multi-faceted artist KAWS designed the song's cover art.
"Ive been wantin to work w KAWS on some shit for yeaaaars," Cudi tweeted. "This is another dream come true. Thanx fam!! I love it!"
But that wasn't all. It looks like we might be getting a full project from Travis and Cudi, who released the track not only with their solo names but also under the name "THE SCOTTS."
WZRD aint over either. We take a decade off between albums haha— The Chosen One (@KidCudi) April 24, 2020
The duo also previewed another unreleased track on IG Live.
The rappers previously connected on tracks like Travis' "Way Back" and "Through the Late Night," as well as Cudi's "Baptized in Fire." La Flame has credited Cudi as one of his biggest influences and said he did not receive nearly as much credit as he deserved.
"I idolize Kid Cudi a lot. That's like, my favorite artist." Travis said during a 2018 Beats 1 special. "I think he can go bar to bar—like some people think JAY-Z is the best rapper. I feel like he can compete with that and still have his own wave. I fuck with him, because he always had his own lingo. He created a world for kids like me, who wasn't just like, the ultimate like drug dealer. He created that vibe and that planet, where you can mack on bitches and still be smooth, and still feel like you’re the king scientist. Not everyone is as real as their music is. That artist comes once every decade."
You can stream "The Scotts" now on Apple Music and via Spotify below.
The single comes fresh off the release of Cudi's "Leader of the Delinquents," his first new single in about four years.
