After nearly six months of teasing, Travis Scott not only released his highly-anticipated new single "Highest In The Room," but he also surprised fans by releasing the track's music video!
The 28-year-old rapper's latest single, which he first previewed in April, dropped at midnight on Friday (October 4) along with its corresponding video, which, like all Cactus Jack visuals, takes you inside the insanely creative mind of Travis Scott. (It might not be ASTROWORLD, but it's still a wild ride!)
The "SICKO MODE" rapper revealed that he was releasing the track earlier this week, just before news of his split from Kylie Jenner. He dropped not one, not two, but three various cover art images for the single. The first was an enflamed ladder in the clouds; the second was an alien head with the song's chorus, “she fills my mind up with ideas” on its face; and the last was a shot of Travis' face, which was covered in metal scraps. He also announced that “Highest In The Room” would be available for purchase as a digital download, a 7″, a CD, or a cassingle.
As fans know, Travis first teased "Highest In The Room" in a 30-second Instagram teaser for his now-ex Kylie's makeup company, Kylie Cosmetics back in April. A month later, he performed the song during his headlining set at Rolling Loud Festival.
At the time, many believed Kylie inspired the track as Travis appears to reference her a number of times in the first verse alone. "She fill my mind up with ideas/ I'm the highest in the room/ Hope I make it out of here/ She saw my eyes she know I'm gone/ I say some things that you might fear/ I'm doing a show I'll be back soon/ That ain't what she want to here," he raps. "Now I got her in my room/ Legs wrapped around my beard/ She got the fastest car to zoom/ Hope I make it out of here/ When I'm with you I feel alive/ You say you love me don't you lie/ Don't cut my heart don't wanna die/ Keep the pistol on my side."
