After previewing the song on a Fortnite virtual concert, “Astronomical”, Travi$ Scott officially dropped his debut single, “THE SCOTTS”, featuring KiD CuDi. The Fornite concert came with extraordinary visuals, and Fornite fanatics could earn new Travis-themed outfits, skins and emotes. The fifteen minute virtual performance featured Travi$ Scott songs off of Astroworld as well as the unreleased track.
Check out some of the visuals below:
As for the name itself, “THE SCOTTS” is derived from a combination of the shared name Travi$ Scott and Scott Mescudi (KiD CuDi’s formal name). Their debut single under this name comes with implications the duo may release an entire album together, similar to Travis and Quavo’s Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho. The release comes a few weeks after KiD CuDi’s “Leader of the Delinquents,” his first solo track since April 2018, and stands as Travi$ Scott’s first official release of 2020.
The production of “THE SCOTTS” includes heavy bass, a prominent synthesizer, and frequent ad libs—all features that represent both artists’ musical style and approach. At just under three minutes, the debut single hints that there is more to come from the energetic duo. Rumors suggest the two may drop an album sometime this year.
