UPDATED 8/5, 7:40 a.m. ET: KayCyy references the ongoing Travis Scott credit issue in the cover art for his new track “My Jeans,” out Friday.

The cover art features the statement “I’M NOT NO BACKGROUND SINGER” against a black background.

As for Utopia, while Scott's team has updated the album so that most of its features are now listed on streaming services, KayCyy's name was still not showing up on "Thank God" at the time of this writing.

See original story below.

Travis Scott’s Utopia album isn’t quite living up to its title according to KayCyy, and he’s taken to social media to air out his frustrations over not being credited on the track “Thank God.”

As Complex originally reported, the 25-year-old is listed in the song’s liner notes as a co-writer under his legal name, Mark Mbogo. Despite having a significant role in the chorus, he is not officially listed as a guest on any streaming platforms.

“Why tf is KayCyy’s feature still hidden?” wrote one fan on Twitter. “He literally wrote a large part of it and sings the entire chorus.”

KayCyy wrote in a quote tweet, “Y’all keep sending me these messages. Y’all know what I do! I’m not no background singer... 😤 fuck Trav!”

The artist previously showed support for Scott with several posts across Twitter and Instagram, including one where he called the 32-year-old "one of the only artist I know that’s gon take it there."

KayCyy wasn’t the only name omitted from the tracklist, which initially named none of its guests until a few days after the album dropped. Other users pointed out that Bon Iver and Sampha weren't billed on “My Eyes.” It’s unclear if either omission was an oversight and Scott has yet to comment on the matter.

KayCyy did way more than background vocals on Utopia and he didn’t get a main feature credit. neither did Bon Iver & Sampha

he’s clearly upset about it too, put his name on the track already ffs 😭 pic.twitter.com/RfOcARjSiy

Utopia was released last Friday and boasts appearances from A-listers such as Beyoncé, Drake, and The Weeknd. Scott is set to perform songs from the album for the first time in Rome on Aug. 7 after a planned show in Egypt was canceled due to production issues.
