In a chat with Brandon "Jinx" Jenkins around the time of Scott's cover story ahead of his debut album Rodeo, the rapper and producer spoke about his aspirations for the future.
"I wanna work with Beyoncé," Scott shared. "You know, I'm from Houston, she's from Houston. I feel like we—we're definitely in due time to do some music."
Now that Utopia is here, he's finally gotten to work with Bey on "Delresto (Echoes)," one of the immediate highlights from the record.
In the same interview, he shared that he wanted to work with Kid Cudi. He managed to team up with Cudi by the time his follow-up album, 2016's Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, dropped. The two have collaborated a whole bunch since, and Cudi even makes an appearance on the Utopia cut "Looove," which was co-produced by Pharrell.
Of course, Bey's surprise appearance on Utopia isn't the only moment that's got fans talking. Drake appears on the song "Meltdown," in which he appears to take shots at Pusha T and Pharrell while referring to the death of Virgil Abloh.
"Man, fuck all that spinning the narrative shit/I melt down the chains that I bought from your boss, give a fuck about all of that heritage shit," he raps on the song. "Since V not around the members done hung up the Louis, they not even wearing that shit/Don't come to the boy 'bout repairing some shit/Don't come to the boy about sparing some shit."
The moment was all the more surprising because Pharrell is featured on the album's aforementioned "Looove." Scott, meanwhile, could be taking shots at TImothée Chalamet over his rumored relationship with Kylie Jenner, the mother of his two children.
