Travis Scott's black-and-white music video for "Wake Up," is a trip... literally.
On Thursday (July 25), Cactus Jack dropped the video for his The Weeknd collaboration, which appears on his 2018 album ASTROWORLD. The video, directed by Jonah Hill, shows Trav walking around a mansion with seemingly dead bodies everywhere. If you thought that was weird, things get stranger as La Flame is shown flying above the scattered bodies, which appear to have liquid coming out of them.
The music video marks Jonah's fourth directorial project. He previously provided the visuals for Vampire Weekend's "Sunflower," Danny Brown's "Ain't It Funny," and he made his feature-length directorial debut with the film Mid90s in 2018.
The 35-year-old actor tweeted about "Wake Up" following its release on Thursday, writing, "Travis Scott featuring The Weeknd “wake up” . Thanks to everyone who worked on this video."
Travis has a lot going on these days. Earlier this month, People reported that the "SICKO MODE" rapper and his girlfriend Kylie Jenner are thinking about taking the next step in their relationship. "Kylie is very happy with her life," a source told the entertainment news site. "She and Travis are discussing marriage." Not only, that but the insider added that the proud parents to 17-month-old daughter Stormi are also "trying" for a second child.
"Everyone thinks Kylie will be pregnant with her second baby soon. They are trying," the source shared. "Kylie loves being a mom and can’t wait to give Stormi a sibling."
