Travi$ Scott is seemingly hard at work plugging his sophomore effort Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight by delivering a promo video for a song called B—- You Broke My Heart.
In the one minute clip, the Texas-raised rapper and singer joins R&B veteran Brian McKnight, who belts out his 1993 ballad One Last Cry.
“My shattered dreams and broken heart are mending on the shelf / I saw you holding hands standing so close to someone else / Now I sit all alone, wishing all my feeling was gone,” McKnight sings, while a contemplative Travi$ leans on the piano and directs birds to fly.
Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight was released exclusively on Apple Music, and it has a who’s-who list of guest features, including Kendrick Lamar, Andre 3000 and The Weeknd just for starters. In addition, Travi$ handled much of the production on the project, along with Boi-1da, TM88 and Mike Dean, who’s been working ultra close with Desiigner as of late.
As it pertains to the title of the album, Travi$ said it stems from a level of frustration surrounding his ideas and wanting to see them materialize faster. “It all stemmed from me having that frustration of just like wanting to do creative s— and just not being able to do it,” he said in an interview with Billboard.
“It took me five months for my action figure to come out. It took eight months for the Hype Williams video to come out. I just felt like I was confined in a box. I couldn’t do s— I wanted to do to help forward pop culture and music,” added the 24-year-old.
Other features on Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight include Young Thug, Swizz Beatz, Cassie, Blac Youngsta, Bryson Tiller and Atlanta rhymer 21 Savage.
