Travis Scott achieves monumental streaming record

Rapper Travis Scott has just broken a world record, surpassing other artists in the genre to become the only one with over 2 billion Spotify streams on each of his studio albums. The news emerges as he gears up to release his new album, Utopia, in June.

So far, Scott has three studio albums to his name, 2015’s Rodeo, 2016’s Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight and 2018’s Astroworld. He’s also released a string of mixtapes in his career, but none of these are available on streaming services. 

Scott has been hinting at the release of Utopia recently, with him also mentioning it over the past few years since the release of Astroworld, with recording starting in 2019. Despite the album being scheduled for a June release, there have been sparse updates, with Kevin Durant labelling it “insane” and Alchemist appearing to suggest that he has a beat on it. 

In February this year, Scott explained at the 202 NBA All-Star Weekend in Salt Lake City that Utopia will be released after Don Toliver, Sheck Wes and SoFaygo’s projects are out. “Sheck Wes You Know The Scouts is on the way, we got Faygo about to put out a lil EP that’s on the way, and right after that, Utopia,” Scott said.

“So we came here with that message and I can’t wait for these [muthafuckas] to drop this shit”.
