Travis Scott Says a New Album Is on the Way
Travis Scott's debut album Rodeo dropped last September, but the rapper/producer is already back in the studio working on his next LP. Acclaimed producer Mike Dean shared a video on Instagram featuring Travis Scott. The two are in the studio as Scott shows off some of the equipment while declaring that "big dog shit" is going down.
But the most notable moment from the brief video is Travis Scott announcing that a "new album [is] on the way." This is the first definitive statement from the Texas native that his sophomore album is in the works. Scott did wrap up 2015 by releasing two new songs, but there's not indication they are part of this forthcoming LP. One of the tracks called "Wonderful" feature a guest appearance by The Weeknd and production by Boi-1da and T-Minus. The other titled "A-Team" was produced by Allen Ritter.
For Travis Scott, this is probably a welcomed return to the focus being on his own music. Recently, Scott was blamed for the delay of Rihanna's new album ANTI. Glass John, a songwriter for Rihanna, went on a lengthy Twitter rant that blamed Scott for all the album's delay. Rihanna's ANTI album was originally scheduled to drop on Nov. 6 of last year, but was pushed back. A new date was set for Christmas Day (Dec. 25), but the album did not arrive once again. Glass John wrote that Scott "keeps put doubt in [Rihanna's mind]" when it comes to the album. Scott did respond to the accusation via Snapchat. "Don't believe this shit," Scott wrote"
