Travis Scott will release his long-awaited album Astroworld on Friday. The album has been teased since 2016, and was prefaced by the promotional single “Watch” featuring Lil Uzi Vert and Scott’s mentor, Kanye West.

Astroworld was announced well before Scott released Birds In the Trap Sing McKnight, and the rapper spoke about what the title, and the amusement park that inspired it, means to him.
“The next record is called Astroworld. It might be the best music that I made,” he told Hypebeast. “I have two records on the album that are like, man, they are the best. They tore down ‘Astroworld’ to build more apartment space. That’s what it’s going to sound like, like taking an amusement park away from kids. We want it back. We want the building back. That’s why I’m doing it. It took the fun out of the city.”
