Travis Scott Gives a Hint He Might Have Signed a Deal With Apple
Apple Music has been steadily reaching out to artists and scoring exclusive streams for projects like Drake's Views, Chance The Rapper's Coloring Book and DJ Khaled's upcoming Major Key. They've been building a very "cool" brand for themselves with their choices of artists, and Travis Scott would make perfect sense.
Earlier today (July 8) Travis posted a sunny picture to Instagram with Larry Jackson. Jackson is the head of content for Apple Music – but perhaps soothsayer is the better word. "It's a lot like the relationship that Jimmy describes to me that he had with Suge [Knight] – Suge was really with him side by side in a lot of those formative years of Death Row," Jackson told Billboard about his relationship with Drizzy. "[Drake's team and I] talk a dozen times a day, at least. We've developed a well-oiled relationship."
In the caption, Travis wrote a couple apple and flame emojis, hinting at a collab, followed by "DONE DEAL."
Last week, footage surfaced of Travis saying his album was coming in the next week. He's talking about Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, the long-awaited project he's been teasing for a minute now. With "Pick Up the Phone" recently added to radio, it feels like it's about to be that time. About a week ago he even hinted that he'd turned in the album. Get ready.
