Travi$ Scott is done with the “rodeo” and he’s ready to jet set towards Astroworld.
The “Antidote” rapper announced the name of this third studio album during a stop on Rihanna’s Anti Tour. This may come to a surprise for his fans though considering that La Flame has yet to release his sophomore album, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight.
“The name of my new album after Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight is now called Astroworld,” he said while on stage. He’s definitely planning ahead on this one.
Many fans speculate that Astroworld is likely a reference to his hometown of Houston. Not only is it home to the baseball team, Houston Astros, the now defunct Six Flags theme park was also called AstroWorld.
Either way it’s definitely drawing nostalgic vibes for Texas inhabitants. “Travis Scott naming his album Astroworld is the biggest clue he’s from Houston,” read one tweet. “AstroWorld brings back some good memories,” read another tweet by a person in the know. But even fans outside of the South are excited for the new project. “So bittsm then astroworld? I’m living for this f–king s—,” read one tweet with a dancing emoji. Another speculates that Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight will be a mixtape while Astroworld will serve as the rhymer’s sophomore effort. Only time will tell. Either way, it’s lit.
See Scott announce the new album title below as well as some tweets about the forthcoming project.
