Leo Messi namechecked on new Travis Scott album
‘Utopia’ is the fourth studio from the Houston born rapper and features guests such as The Weeknd, James Blake, Drake and Bad Bunny.
Travis Scott’s eagerly anticipated new studio album ‘Utopia’ was released globally on Friday, 28 July on the Cactus Jack/Epic label.
The fourth studio album from the Texan rapper features a who’s who in the rap game and boasts collaborations from the likes of KayCyy, Teezo Touchdown, Bon Iver, Sampha, Drake, Playboi Carti, Sheck Wes, Beyoncé, Rob49, 21 Savage, the Weeknd, Yung Lean, Young Thug, James Blake, Westside Gunn, Kid Cudi, Bad Bunny, Future, and SZA.
Scott was hoping to launch the album with an ambitious concert at the pyramids in Egypt which has been cancelled as promoter Live Nation Middle East said production issues hampered the gig. “Complex production issues meant that the show could not be constructed in the desert,” Live Nation said in a statement on social media.
Utopia features 19 tracks and runs in at one hour and thirteen minutes with initial reaction from the rappers fans on the positive side.
Messi and Brady namechecked
Current Inter Miami striker Lionel Messi and former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady get a namecheck on the track ‘Meltdown’ which features Canadian rapper Drake.
Scott raps: Your boy going Lionel Messi, I go Tom Brady.
Messi’s arrival at the MLS club has propelled soccer into the mainstream with the likes of Serena Williams, Kim Kardashian, DJ Khaled and LeBron James showing up at the DRV PNK Stadium to see the Argentine striker at close quarters in Miami.
