Album tops Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart
Grammy-nominated superstar Travis Scott has earned his first No. 1 debut and second No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart with “Highest in the Room,” which racked up 59 million streams in it’s first week. The news follows his epic performance at Rolling Loud Festival in New York this past weekend, where Scott ended up performing on just one leg during his set, after hurting his knee during a bad landing.
The single marks the modern icon’s first new music since the arrival of his double-platinum history-making 2018 No. 1 opus, ASTROWORLD. The track, released October 4th via Epic Records, is available digitally as well as a CD single, 7″ single and cassette single, each with three different cover options. Prices range from $7-$12 in Scott’s online store.
Scott is celebrating the single by teaming up with Postmates to introduce the “Travis Scott Collection.” Fans may order from his personal favorite restaurants across Houston and L.A. when they’re “the hungriest in the room.” Selections include Jamba Juice, Shake Shack, and Chipotle — each boast a menu curated by the legend himself.
Scott most recently announced his ASTROWORLD Festival will be returning to Houston’s NRG Park on November 9th. The additional show is due to overwhelming sales which saw the festival hit a personal record selling more than 40,000 tickets in one day. Additional tickets are available at astroworldfest.com.
Scott’s ASTROWORLD Festival takes place across the street from the former home of the Houston amusement park, ASTROWORLD. The park was originally built to complement the nearby Astrodome, the world’s first multi-purpose domed sports arena, referred to by many as the “Eight Wonder of the World.” The festival ultimate seeks to brin back the beloved spirit and nostalgia of ASTROWORLD, making a childhood dream of Scott’s come true.
