Travis Scott shoots new music video at Nice Stadium in France

Many believed that the Astroworld tragedy marked the end of the road for Travis Scott, especially because the highly publicised event demonstrated Scott’s inadequate approach to public safety. However, the American rapper is ready to make his comeback with his upcoming album Utopia.

In a previous interview with CR Fashion Book, Scott explained that Utopia was about an optimistic vision of the future. He said: “Medicine, nursing, being a better person, talking, language, communication — you know, a utopian state. That’s what my album is about.”

The rapper added: “You think utopia is a society where everything is good: health, buildings, architecture—nah. It’s just about proper lines of communication. Because that’s the dystopian shit we’re in right now. It’s all hate, hate, hate, and all of that is drawn from what?”

According to Scott, his new album seeks to understand the misinformation that has sown the seeds of hatred: “Miscommunication, non-communication, non-understandable communication, ignorance to communication. ‘I don’t like this person.’ Why? Because somebody told me something to not like this person? Because in history I read to not like this person? Why?”

Set to be released next month, Utopia has already managed to garner a lot of attention from hip-hop fans who have been eagerly waiting for it since it was announced. Although the situation became complicated after the Astroworld tragedy, fans have still expressed their interest in the new project on social media platforms.

During a recent interview, Scott defined Utopia: “Utopia is something that people feel is so far-fetched and out of reach, some perfect state of mind. But you create it yourself. There are people who achieve Utopia every day. They may not be the richest people with the dopest cribs, but it’s a utopia wherever they are, and that’s the most you can have.”

In addition to the news about the album, Scott was also spotted in Nice Stadium in France while he was shooting his new music video. Watch the clip below.
