Travis Scott Remixes Madeintyo’s “Uber Everywhere”
Last week at MSG, after Kanye West played the original version of The Life of Pablo and some unreleased music from Vic Mensa and Young Thug, he let Virgil Abloh take the AUX cord and play a brand new remix of Madeintyo's "Uber Everywhere" by Travis Scott.
The song, produced by beat extraordinaire K Swisha, features a verse and a hook from Travis at the front of the song. Last night (Feb. 15) Travis hopped on Twitter and lamented the leak, saying that he had been planning to drop some new music but now felt discouraged. He later rethought his sentiments.
"Uber Everywhere" is Madeintyo's biggest single to date, and it's been buzzing in Atlanta since last summer when he dropped it. Another song of his, "I Want" produced by Richie Souf (who also recently did songs for iLoveMakonnen like "Big Gucci" and "Where Your Girl At?"), is also picking up tremendous steam, and both of those cuts are included on Madeintyo's You Are Forgiven mixtape that he dropped last August.
Not only is "Uber Everywhere" an amazing track, but it also has an edge when it comes to marketing. Once you've heard the song, it's hard not to hop in an Uber and play the record first thing. Intentionally or otherwise, Madeintyo might have opened up a potential sponsorship in the near future. There's no word on whether Madeintyo has a deal yet, but judging by his marketing savvy and his feel for songmaking, it shouldn't be long before we hear big things from the kid.
