by Laura valencia, '18
Travis Scott, aka “La flame”, has been getting a lot of attention ever since his first debut album, “Rodeo”, came out.
“Birds In The Trap Sing Mcknight” is his highly anticipated second official album which had quite positive reviews from fans. The same week it came out, it was ranked number one in Billboard's Top 200 and number five on iTunes. The album consists of fourteen songs, and has features from great artists such as; Andre 3000, Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd,Kid Cudi and Young Thug.
This album first started as a rumor.It started by people talking and posting pictures of how excited the fans were for another album.Before the album was created, it had started with different titles like, “Days after Rodeo”. This title was created due to how much success his first album had gotten. and even many leaked songs with features from artists that are not in the original album. Some songs that Travis released, like “Bake sale”,”A-team”, and “The Hooch” did not make it in the album even though they were really liked by his fans.
Some of the most liked songs in the album are, “Goosebumps” featuring Kendrick Lamar, where Scott starts off this song very slow and then the rapping part introduced by Kendrick Lamar , this song is one of the only songs that mixes Kendricks technique and Travis’s technique and its pulled off perfectly. Another really liked song is “Through the Late Night”, which is an upbeat change to Kid Cudi’s song “Late Night”. Also “The Ends” featuring Andre 3000 , is the perfect way to start his album by having a soft rap with Andre’s help. Most of these songs are to play on repeat!
Songs like “Wonderful” and “Pick Up the Phone” were first the most liked songs because Travis Scott released them first as a tease of the new album. “Wonderful” is one of the most liked songs since it features The Weeknd and it's the best way to end his album. “Pick Up The Phone” featuring Young Thug has this party vibe to it so it is a song that creates a party mood whilst the song talks about wanting a girl that doesn't want them back which relates to many of his listeners.
Birds In the Trap Sing Mcknight has gotten many reviews from a 7.5 to an 8.0, but many people have this album as one of their favorites. Travis mixes a bunch of sounds, styles and artists to make this album and it is noted that he pulled it off really well. Now, he is starting his tour whilst being seen with many artists. He has posted many tweets on new surprises.
It will be great to see what he has planned next.
